[PLUG] USENIX HealthSec '12 Submission Deadline Approaching

We're writing to remind you that the submission deadline for the 3rd
USENIX Workshop on Health Security and Privacy (HealthSec '12) is only a
month away. Please submit all work by Tuesday, April 10, 2012, 11:59
p.m. PDT.

HealthSec 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. We strongly encourage
cross-disciplinary interactions between fields, including, but not
limited to, technology, medicine, and policy.

For the first time, the HealthSec Program Committee is soliciting
previously unpublished, full-length technical papers that concern
privacy and security threats, models, architectures, and protections for
health information technologies. We will also select shorter position
papers that show potential to stimulate or catalyze further research and
explore new directions‚ surprising results and thought-provoking ideas
will be strongly favored.

Workshop topics are solicited in all areas relating to healthcare
information security and privacy, including:
* Access control and consent management systems
* Techniques for analyzing and securing audit logs
* Architectures for large-scale health information systems and health
information exchange
* Medical devices and body area networks
* Mobile devices and their use with health and fitness devices
* Home and assisted living monitoring systems
* Threat models: formal descriptions and analysis
* Privacy enhancing technologies such as de-identification and
differential privacy for electronic health records generally or specific
types of data such as images or genomic data
* Usability and human factors
* Regulatory and policy issues
* Authentication and identification techniques
* Cryptographic protocols

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

HealthSec '12 will be co-located with the 21st USENIX Security Symposium
(USENIX Security '12), which will take place August 8-10, 2012.

We look forward to receiving your submissions.
