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.
