Join us in San Francisco, CA, August 8-12, 2011, for a week covering the
latest research in the security of computer systems, networks,
healthcare, electronic voting, and more.

We know that keeping up with the latest advances in security can be
costly and time-consuming. The 20th USENIX Security Symposium and the
co-located workshops make it easier than ever to stay ahead of the game.

The week includes:

- USENIX Security '11: 20th USENIX Security Symposium
Monday-Friday, August 8-12, 2011
The USENIX Security Symposium brings together researchers,
practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others
interested in the latest advances in the security of computer systems
and networks. The 5-day program includes a Keynote Address by Charlie
Stross, award-winning science fiction writer; refereed papers; invited
talks; a tutorial program; poster session; and more.

- EVT/WOTE '11:2011 Electronic Voting Technology Workshop/Workshop on
Trustworthy Elections
Monday-Tuesday, August 8-9, 2011
EVT/WOTE brings together researchers from a variety of disciplines,
ranging from computer science and human-computer interaction experts
through political scientists, legal experts, election administrators,
and voting equipment vendors.

- CSET '11: 4th Workshop on Cyber Security Experimentation and Test 
Monday, August 8, 2011
The focus of CSET is on the science of cyber security evaluation, as
well as experimentation, measurement, metrics, data, and simulations as
those subjects relate to computer and network security. Because of the
complex and open nature of the subject matter, CSET '11 is designed to
be a workshop in the traditional sense. Presentations will be
interactive, with the expectation that a substantial amount of this time
may be given to questions and audience discussion.

- FOCI '11: USENIX Workshop on Free and Open Communications on the Internet
Monday, August 8, 2011
The first USENIX Workshop on Free and Open Communications on the
Internet (FOCI) seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners
from both technology and policy who are working on policies or
technologies to detect or circumvent practices that inhibit free and
open communications on the Internet.

- WOOT '11: 5th USENIX Workshop on Offensive Technologies
Monday, August 8, 2011
Progress in the field of computer security is driven by a symbiotic
relationship between our understandings of attack and of defense. The
USENIX Workshop on Offensive Technologies (WOOT) aims to bring together
researchers and practitioners in systems security to present research
advancing the understanding of attacks on operating systems,
networks, and applications.

- HealthSec '11: 2nd USENIX Workshop on Health Security and Privacy
Tuesday, August 9, 2011
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. The highly interactive workshop will
combine posters and brief presentations by position paper authors,
slightly longer talks by extended abstract authors, and panel

- HotSec '11: 6th USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in Security
Tuesday, August 9, 2011
HotSec is renewing its focus by placing singular emphasis on new ideas
and problems. HotSec takes a broad view of security and privacy and
encompasses research on topics including but not limited to large-scale
threats, network security, hardware security, software security, physical
security, programming languages, applied cryptography,
privacy, human-computer interaction, emerging computing environment,
sociology, and economics.

- MetriCon 6.0: Sixth Workshop on Security Metrics
Tuesday, August 9, 2011
Attendance at MetriCon 6.0 is by invitation only.

Whether you're a researcher, a system administrator, or a policy wonk,
come to the 20th USENIX Security Symposium and the co-located workshops
to find out how changes in computer security are going to affect you.

See you in San Francisco!
