High-quality poster presentations are an integral part of SOUPS. We seek poster abstracts describing recent or ongoing research related to usable privacy and security. SOUPS will include a poster session in which authors will exhibit their posters. Accepted poster abstracts will be distributed to symposium participants and made available on the symposium Web site. Interactive demos alongside posters are welcome and encouraged. We also welcome authors of recent papers on usable privacy and security (2016 to 2017) to present their work at the SOUPS poster session. Poster acceptance will be determined by the poster chairs and jury. At the conference, best posters will be honored with prizes awarded by the poster jury and SOUPS attendees.

Poster Submission Requirements

  • Poster abstract: In the SIGCHI extended abstracts format, at most 4 pages (excluding references). For posters on previously published papers, please submit a document with the full bibliographical citation (title, authors, venue, etc.), a link to the published (official) version, and an abstract. All submissions must be in PDF format. Poster submissions should not be anonymized.
  • Poster draft: All submissions (including recently published research) must include a draft of the poster to receive feedback before the conference. Presented posters can be sized up to 36x48 inches, either portrait or landscape, but should be scaled down to normal size (A4 or letter) for submission as a PDF.
  • Demo requirements (optional): If you would like to present a demo alongside your poster, please describe your requirements (table, power outlet, etc.) in the appropriate field of the submission system.
  • Submission: Submit your poster using the electronic submission page .

Please use the correct template and follow formatting instructions when preparing your poster abstract to reduce the need for revision after acceptance.

Submissions will close at 11:59 p.m. PDT on Monday, May 29, 2017. Contact with questions.
