Fourth SHB Workshop
I’m at SHB 2011, the fourth Interdisciplinary Workshop on Security and Human Behavior, at Carnegie Mellon University. This is a two-day invitational gathering of computer security researchers, psychologists, behavioral economists, sociologists, political scientists, anthropologists, philosophers, and others — all of whom are studying the human side of security — organized by Alessandro Acquisti, Ross Anderson, and me. It’s not just an interdisciplinary conference; most of the people here are individually interdisciplinary. For the past four years, this has been the most intellectually stimulating conference I have attended.
Ross Anderson is liveblogging this event. Matt Blaze is taping the sessions; I’ll link to them if he puts them up on the Internet.
