Dates and Location: October 16 & 17, 2023 Copenhagen, Denmark
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 EuroUSEC solicits previously unpublished work offering novel research contributions or clearly articulated research visions in any aspect of human-centered security and privacy.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.
EuroUSEC is an independent event in Copenhagen without any affiliation to any conference. We strive to keep registration costs to a minimum.
Publishing proceedings with ACM is currently being negotiated.
We will require one author of each accepted paper to present the paper in person. In certain circumstances, people who cannot travel may present their papers virtually. Under the same restrictions, we will ask keynote speakers to come and present in person.
We want EuroUSEC to be a community-driven event and would love to hear any questions, comments, or concerns you might have regarding these changes from last year. Therefore we want to encourage everyone to join the everyone to join the EuroUSEC Slack. Alternatively, you can email the program chairs with any questions or concerns..
EuroUSEC is part of the USEC family of events. You can find more info about all USEC events at: https://www.usablesecurity.net/USEC/index.php
We invite you to submit a paper and join us at EuroUSEC 2023.
We are excited to welcome original work describing research, visions, or experiences in all areas of usable security and privacy. We welcome a variety of research methods, including both qualitative and quantitative approaches.
We will review longer papers on mature/completed work in a research track, as well as shorter papers on work in progress, or work that has yet to begin, in a vision track. We aim to provide a venue for researchers at all stages of their careers and at all stages of their projects.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
It is mandatory for at least one author to attend EuroUSEC (either in person or virtually in certain circumstances).

|EuroUSEC:||16th & 17th October, 2023|
Research Track: The research track is intended to report on mature work that has been completed. The goal of the EuroUSEC's research track is to disseminate results of interest to the broader usable security and privacy community. Papers must not be more than 16 pages in length using the one-column submission format excluding the bibliography. Try to scale the length of the paper according to the contributions you describe therein. Authors have the option to attach to their paper‘s supplementary appendices with study materials (e.g., survey instruments, interview guides, etc.) that would not otherwise take up valuable space within the body of the paper. Reviewers are not required to read appendices, so your paper should be self-contained without them. ACM also allows publication of additional supplemental materials and we want to encourage authors to use this option to provide research artifacts (e.g., builds of own software used in the study).
Vision Track: The vision track is intended to report on work in progress or concrete ideas for work that has yet to begin. The focus in the vision track is to spark discussion with the goal to provide the authors helpful feedback, pointers to potentially related investigations, and new ideas to explore. Suitable submissions to the vision track include traditional work-in-progress pieces such as preliminary results of pre-studies, but also research proposals and position papers outlining future research. Papers must be up to 9 pages in length using the one-column format, including the bibliography and with no appendices.
We will announce the submisison link as soon as the submission system is ready.
Simultaneous submission of the same paper to another venue with proceedings or a journal is prohibited. Serious infringements of these policies may cause the paper to be rejected from publication and the authors put on a warning list, even if the paper is initially accepted by the program committee. Contact the EuroUSEC chairs if there are questions about this policy.
You are free to publish a pre-print of your paper on arXiv, SSRN or similar, if you wish to.
Contact the EuroUSEC chairs if there are any questions.
Because of the Russian invasion in Ukraine, current guidelines of our host IT University of Copenhagen (ITU) prohibit hosting guests from research institutions in Russia and Belarus at ITU. We therefore encourage researchers from such institutions to be mindful of these regulations and to check whether they will be able to attend EuroUSEC before submitting their work.
The chairs can be contacted at Oksana Kulyk and Farzaneh Karegar
EuroUSEC will be held from October 16 - 17 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Event location is IT University of Copenhagen. More information will be provided.
To make EuroUSEC as effective as possible for everyone, we ask that all participants commit to our social contract:
