[PLUG] EVT/WOTE '10 Submission Deadline Friday, April 16

We're writing to remind you that the submission deadline for the 2010
Electronic Voting Technology Workshop/Workshop on Trustworthy Elections
(EVT/WOTE '10) is quickly approaching. Please submit your work by
Friday, April 16, 2010, 11:59 p.m. PDT.

In many countries, most votes are counted and transported
electronically, but there are numerous practical and policy implications
of introducing electronic machines into the voting process. Both voting
technology and its regulations are very much in flux, with open concerns
including accuracy, reliability, robustness, security, transparency,
equality, privacy, usability, and accessibility.

EVT/WOTE brings together researchers from a variety of disciplines,
ranging from computer science and human-computer interaction experts
through political scientists, legal experts, election administrators,
and voting equipment vendors. In addition to paper presentations, the
workshop may include panel discussions with substantial time devoted to
questions and answers. The workshop papers will be published
electronically. Attendance at the workshop will be open to the public,
although talks and refereed paper presentations will be by invitation
only. There will be an award for the best paper.

Papers are solicited in all areas related to electronic voting,
including but not limited to:

* Accessibility
* Analysis of/attacks on existing voting technologies
* Auditing
* Ballot integrity
* Ballot secrecy
* Case studies from the real world of elections
* Case studies of electronic voting experiments
* Design and implementation of new voting technologies
* Forensics
* Formal security analysis
* Impact of source code disclosure or nondisclosure
* Issues with and evolution of voting technology standards
* Legal issues including intellectual property
* Receipts and coercion resistance
* Risk assessement
* System testing methodologies
* Usability
* Verifiable election systems
* Vote collection/recording
* Vote tabulation
* Voter authentication
* Voter privacy and/or anonymity
* Voter registration and pre-voting processes
* Voting technology standards

EVT/WOTE '10 will be co-located with the 19th USENIX Security Symposium
