WECSR 2010, Workshop on Ethics in Computer Security Research, 
Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain, 
January 28-29, 2010 
(Submisions due 15 October 2009)

Computer security often leads to discovering interesting new problems and 
challenges. The challenge still remains to follow a path acceptable for 
Institutional Review Boards at academic institutions, as well as 
compatible with ethical guidelines for professional societies or 
government institutions. However, no exact guidelines exist for computer 
security research yet. This workshop will bring together computer security 
researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and legal experts.

This workshop solicits submissions describing or suggesting ethical and 
responsible conduct in computer security research. While we focus on 
setting standards and sharing prior experiences and experiments in 
computer security research, successful or not, we tap into research 
behavior in network security, computer security, applied cryptography, 
privacy, anonymity, and security economics.

This workshop will favor discussions among participants, in order to shape 
the future of ethical standards in the field. It will be co-located with 
the Fourteenth International Conference on Financial Cryptography and Data 
Security 2010.


We solicit submissions in three categories: position papers, case studies, 
and panel proposals. The proceedings will be published in the Springer 
LNCS series.
