Location

WAY 2018 will be co-located with SOUPS 2018 at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront in Baltimore, MD, USA.

Overview

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to share experiences, concerns, and ideas about known and new authentication techniques. We are interested in discussing methods of evaluating the impact and usability of various authentication techniques, and ideas about novel authentication techniques that are secure, robust and usable.

Authentication, or the act of proving that someone is who they claim to be, is a cornerstone of security. The importance of authentication continues to grow as users must prove their identity to maintain a continuous presence with a wide variety of computing devices and services.

The goal of this workshop is to explore these and related topics across the broad range of contexts, including enterprise systems, personal systems, and especially mobile and embedded systems (such as healthcare, smart home, IoT, and wearable systems). This workshop provides an informal and interdisciplinary setting at the intersection of security, psychological, and behavioral science.

Workshop papers will be made available on the conference webpage but are considered non-archival. WAY fosters a supportive and constructive environment for sharing ideas and giving feedback. We welcome submissions about new and ongoing work, as well as completed projects.

Submission Instructions

We are soliciting 4-5 page submissions (including references) on topics relating to authentication.

We are also seeking panel proposals. Proposals should include four speakers on a topic relating to authentication. Panel proposals should be 1-2 page abstracts, and contain the phrase “Panel Proposal” in the title.

Submissions should be formatted using the SOUPS submission template (available in MS Word and LaTeX) and submitted as a PDF. Submissions should not be anonymous.
