[PLUG] HealthSec '10 Submission Deadline April 9

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  
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

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!
