--------------------------------------- 2007 USENIX/ACCURATE Electronic Voting Technology Workshop (EVT '07) August 6, 2007 Boston, MA, USA Sponsored by USENIX: The Advanced Computing Systems Association, and ACCURATE: A Center for Correct, Usable, Reliable, Auditable, and Transparent Elections Submissions Deadline: April 22, 2007, 11:59 PDT http://www.usenix.org/evt07/cfpa -----------------------------------------
The Call for Papers for the 2007 USENIX/ACCURATE Electronic Voting Technology Workshop is now available.
EVT '07 seeks to bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines, ranging from computer science and human factors experts through political scientists, legal experts, election administrators, and voting equipment vendors. EVT seeks to publish original research on important problems, including how the software and hardware in voting might be engineered to be more robust against tampering or how it might be written to be more easily and openly verified. Papers exploring "end-to-end" approaches that strive to ensure that the integrity of the election is independent of software and hardware are also encouraged.
EVT also welcomes submissions on how these systems might be engineered to be more usable by the broad voting population. EVT also seeks discussion of how election regulations and standards may evolve to support better election technologies. Additionally, EVT encourages position papers on the practicality (or impracticality) of the technological advances in electronic voting, particularly with the limited budgets available to many elections administrators. EVT will consider papers covering the gamut of technology as it is used in elections, ranging from voter registration and vote collection through tabulation and post-election auditing. We are interested in both future technologies and systems widely used today around the world.
In particular, we welcome papers considering:
* Design and analysis of electronic voting schemes and protocols
* Deployment and lifecycle concerns
* Mitigating threats (including insider threats)
* Usability and accessibility (both for voters and administrators)
* Legal issues, including how voting systems must comply with the ADA and HAVA or the effect of intellectual property rights and nondisclosure agreements on voting system testing, certification, and deployment
* The technology standards process and how it should evolve
EVT '07 will be a one-day event, Monday, August 6, 2007, co-located with the 16th USENIX Security Symposium in Boston, MA. In addition to paper presentations, we may have vibrant panel discussions with substantial time devoted to questions and answers.
The submissions deadline is 11:59 p.m. PDT on Sunday, April 22, 2007. Submissions guidelines can be found at http://www.usenix.org/evt07/cfpa
We look forward to your submission.
