Bruce Schneier, noted “security guru” and Chief Security Technology Officer of BT, will be the program chair for the 2011 Workshop on the Economics of Information Security (WEIS), to be held June 14-15 at George Mason University, in the Washington DC area. The Workshop is
… the leading forum for interdisciplinary scholarship on information security, combining expertise from the fields of economics, social science, business, law, policy and computer science.
Proposals for papers to be presented at the Workshop are invited:
We highlight two key areas of particular focus for this year’s workshop. First, we encourage submissions that consider the design and evaluation of policy solutions for improving information security. Second, given the importance of data-driven decision making, we encourage submissions with empirical components.
The “call for participation” page gives more details; submissions are due in February 2011.
