Call For Papers

There is an increasing trend toward moving medical information to digital systems. This trend has materialized in the form of medical information sharing—both within internal and federated medical systems and in cloud systems such as Google Health and Microsoft HealthVault. This trend has also materialized in the form of advanced medical care, ranging from next-generation medical devices in the home and in the operating room to remote robotic medical devices on the battlefield. The focus of this workshop will be on protecting the security and privacy of these next-generation medical and healthcare systems.
HealthSec is intended as a forum for lively discussion of aggressively innovative and potentially disruptive ideas on all aspects of medical and health security and privacy. A fundamental goal of the workshop is to promote cross-disciplinary interactions between fields, including, but not limited to, technology, medicine, and policy. Surprising results and thought-provoking ideas will be strongly favored; complete papers with polished results in well-explored research areas are comparatively discouraged. Position papers will be selected for their potential to stimulate or catalyze further research and explorations of new directions, as well as for their potential to spark productive discussions at the workshop.

The format of the workshop will be short presentations by the authors of the position papers, followed by break-out discussion groups. We expect the workshop to be highly interactive. There will be no published proceedings, but authors of accepted position papers will be expected to make their papers available on their own Web sites by July 28, 2010, and to provide the program chairs with the URLs to the papers by July 28 as well.


Workshop topics are solicited in all areas relating to healthcare information security and privacy, including:
Security and privacy models for healthcare information systems
Industrial experiences in healthcare information systems
Deployment of open systems for secure and private use of healthcare information technology
Security and privacy threats against and countermeasures for existing and future medical devices
Regulatory and policy issues of healthcare information systems
Privacy of medical records
Usability issues in healthcare information systems
Threat models for healthcare information systems

Please contact the program chairs if you have any questions.


Submitted papers must be no longer than two 8.5" x 11" pages. Your paper should be typeset in two-column format in 10 point type on 12 point (single-spaced) leading, with a text block no more than 6.5" wide by 9" deep. Submissions are single-blind; authors should include their names and affiliations as part of their submissions. Submissions must be in PDF format and must be submitted via the Web submission form, which will be available here soon.

Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered. Accepted submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication on the authors' Web sites; rejected submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.

Submission of work containing plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud. USENIX, like other scientific and technical conferences and journals, prohibits this practice and may take action against authors who have committed it. See the USENIX Conference Submissions Policy for details. Questions? Contact your program chairs,, or the USENIX office,
