 Our Review

EuroUSEC (European Symposium on Usable Security) is a European platform for research and debate on human aspects in security and privacy. EuroUSEC seeks previously unpublished work in any area of human-centered security and privacy that offers new research contributions or clearly defined research ambitions. EuroUSEC’s mission is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of academics and practitioners working in the fields of human-computer interaction, security, and privacy. Researchers, practitioners, and students from a variety of fields, including computer science, engineering, psychology, social sciences, and economics, are among the participants.

Conference Event Summary

The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Wednesday, August 4th 2021, or created by us.

The European Symposium on Usable Security (EuroUSEC) serves as a European forum for research and discussion in the area of human factors in security and privacy. EuroUSEC solicits previously unpublished work offering novel research contributions or clearly articulated research visions in any aspect of human-centered security and privacy. The aim of EuroUSEC is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of researchers and practitioners in human-computer interaction, security, and privacy. Participants are researchers, practitioners, and students from domains including computer science, engineering, psychology, the social sciences, and economics.

Given the pandemic-struck world we currently live in, EuroUSEC 2021 will be a virtual-only event. It will take a slightly different shape than last year’s virtual-only edition, in order to address points raised during the discussions after last year’s EuroUSEC and in reflection of the virtual academic events held last year:

1. Most importantly, EuroUSEC will be an independent event, not associated with any conference. This is motivated by the benefits of revision options in the review process and allowing a deadline after the SOUPS and NSPW notifications. Moreover, due to the (Asia)USEC and SOUPS deadlines in February, we felt that a third deadline for the usable security and privacy community in March would have been excessive and a later submission option, in the summer, would be better for everyone involved. Unfortunately, neither is feasible while maintaining a continued association to Euro S&P.

2. The technology will basically be the same we used last year. We will hold the event using Zoom for the talks and Slack for the discussions. However, differently than last year, as an independent event, this allows us to make attendance free, enhancing EuroUSEC’s accessibility.

3. On the same note, we have secured funding to pay for the proceedings to be published in the ACM ICPS. The funding will also allow us to pay for the open access options of ICPS, meaning the proceedings will be open access through the EuroUSEC 2021 website.

4. We want to accommodate as many time zones as possible, but also allow for breaks so as to reduce Zoom-overload and fatigue. Therefore, EuroUSEC will potentially be a 2-day event. This is of course dependent on the submission numbers.

5. In light of the changes listed above, it was decided by the Steering Committee to pick up one additional aspect mentioned by participants during the discussion after the last EuroUSEC and enact a small name change: EuroUSEC 2021’s official long name will be 2021 European Symposium on Usable Security.
