Liked the workshop? Come to our SIG at CHI 2013

Following on from our workshop, we feel it important to get as many people interested in the design of interactive secure systems together in one place.  We’ll never get everyone in one place, but many interested stakeholders attend the annual CHI conference.

For this reason, we will be running a Designing Interactive Secure Systems Special Interest Group at CHI 2013.

Pre-workshop social event

We’ve decided to base our pre-DISS 2012 social event in the vicinity of the university, as this is where most people appear to be staying.

We’ll be meeting up at The Soak on Bristol Road from 6pm onwards.  We will then be heading across the road to the Dilshad where we have a table booked from 8.30pm.  If you’d like to come along then it’s not too late to add yourself to the Doodle poll; we’ll be confirming final numbers with the restaurant on Monday afternoon.

If you’re coming up from the town centre then Selly Oak is just a few minutes train ride out of New Street.  Both The Soak and Dilshad are then a few more minutes walk from the train station.

DISS 2012 social event

As you may be aware, we plan to organise a social event on the night before the workshop to allow everyone to meet each other informally.  To help us with our planning, it would be useful to know how many people to expect and where the most appropriate place to meet up might be.

If you plan to attend this social event, please add your name to the Doodle poll.

Final deadline extension: Friday, 29th June 23:59 BST

We’ve had some great papers submitted so far, but we’ve still got room for a few more. 

Following several requests, we’ve decided to extend the submission deadline to Friday, 29th June 23:59 BST.  This will be a strict deadline, but we hope this will give you a bit more time to finish off those papers you’ve been working on.
