[PLUG] HealthSec '11 Submission Deadline Approaching

We are writing to remind you that the submission deadline for the 2nd
USENIX Workshop on Health Security and Privacy (HealthSec '11) is
quickly approaching. Please submit all work by Tuesday, April 5, 2011,
at 11:59 p.m. UTC (7:59 p.m. EDT).

The focus of HealthSec '11 is the exploration of security and privacy
issues that arise from the exploding quantity of digital personal health
information, in both the provider and the patient settings. The Program
Committee strongly encourages 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.

Position papers that show potential to stimulate or catalyze further
research, as well as extended abstracts that explore an issue in depth,
are solicited on topics in all areas relating to healthcare information
security and privacy, including:

* Security and privacy models for healthcare information systems
* Industry experience in securing healthcare information systems
* Design and deployment of patient-oriented systems for securely
accessing and managing personal health data
* Security and privacy threats against existing and future medical
devices--and countermeasures
* Regulatory and policy issues of healthcare information systems
* Privacy of medical information
* Usability issues, especially combined with security constraints
* Threat models for healthcare information systems

In addition to the refereed papers, the technical program will include
invited talks and panel discussions. You are invited to make suggestions
regarding topics or speakers in any of these sessions via email to the
program chairs at

For submission guidelines and more information, please see the complete
Call for Papers at

HealthSec '11 will be co-located with the 20th USENIX Security Symposium
(USENIX Security '11), which will take place August 10-12, 2011.

We look forward to receiving your submissions!
