HealthSec '10 Submission Deadline April 9

Forwarded from: Lionel Garth Jones 

We're writing to remind you that the submission deadline for the 1st 
USENIX Workshop on Health Security and Privacy (HealthSec '10) is 
quickly approaching. Please submit all work by Friday, April 9, 2010, 
11:59 p.m. PDT (firm deadline). 

HealthSec '10 is intended as a forum for lively discussion of 
aggressively innovative and potentially disruptive ideas on all aspects 
of medical and health security and privacy. A fundamental goal of the 
workshop is to promote cross-disciplinary interactions between fields, 
including, but not limited to, technology, medicine, and policy. 
Surprising results and thought-provoking ideas will be strongly favored; 
complete papers with polished results in well-explored research areas 
are comparatively discouraged.

Given the goals for HealthSec '10, the submission requirements are 
modest: 2-page papers that clearly espouse a position and that will 
promote discussion. Position papers will be selected for their potential 
to stimulate or catalyze further research and explorations of new 
directions, as well as for their potential to spark productive 
discussions at the workshop.

Workshop topics are solicited in all areas relating to healthcare 
information security and privacy, including:

* Security and privacy models for healthcare information systems
* Industrial experiences in healthcare information systems
* Deployment of open systems for secure and private use of healthcare 
  information technology
* Security and privacy threats against and countermeasures for existing 
  and future medical devices
* Regulatory and policy issues of healthcare information systems
* Privacy of medical records
* Usability issues in healthcare information systems
* Threat models for healthcare information systems

We look forward to receiving your submissions!
