Location: Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA

The workshop is part of the Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security  

USM '07 solicits short position papers from academia and industry  
about all aspects of IT security management usability. The workshop  
will provide an opportunity for interdisciplinary researchers and  
practitioners to discuss this fascinating and important topic. Those  
interested in presenting at the workshop should submit a position  
paper of up to four pages along with a cover letter describing their  
research interests, experience, and background in the area of usable  
IT security management. Workshop papers will be posted on the SOUPS

workshop papers will not be formally published, and therefore may
