IEEE and IEEE Council.

Due to the huge yet increasing number of people carrying out
sensitive Internet transactions, security threats hardly ever
reduce to technical threats. Rather, they are socio-technical,
as they come from adversaries who combine social
engineering practices with technical skills.

Humans obviously cannot be treated as machines, as they take
actions that may seem irrational although they are perfectly
justifiable from a cognitive and a social perspective.
Computer security hence appears to acquire more and more the
facets of an interdisciplinary science with roots in both
interpretive and positivist research traditions.

The workshop intends to foster an interdisciplinary discussion
on how to model and analyse the socio-technical aspects
of modern security systems and on how to protect such
systems from socio-technical threats and attacks.

We welcome experts in computer science, in social and behavioral
sciences, philosophy and psychology.

Relevant topics include but are not limited to:

* Usability Analysis
* System-User Interfaces
* Psychology of Deception
* Socio-Technical Attacks and Defenses
* User Perception of Security and Trust
* Design of Socio-Technical Secure Systems
* Cognitive Aspect in Human Computer Interaction
* Human Practice
* Behavioural Models
* Social Engineering
* Modelling and Analysis of Security
* Ceremonies and Workflows
* Game Theoretical Approaches to Security
* Cyber Crime Science
* Security Properties Specification and Verification
* Threat and Adversary Models
* Social Informatics and Networks
* Effects of Technology on Trust Building Behaviour
* Experiences and Test Cases
