Richard Zanibbi and I will be presenting Balancing Usability and Security in a Video CAPTCHA at SOUPS ‘09 this summer. SOUPS is conveniently being held on Google’s Mountain View campus, so I’ll be out there for the week visiting friends, enjoying the sun, working, and attending the conference. Once our camera-ready version is finished, I’ll post a full copy of the paper here and also on my new Google Research page.

Here’s some quick info about SOUPS:

The fifth Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security (SOUPS) will be held July 15-17, 2009 at Google in Mountain View, CA. This symposium will bring together an interdisciplinary group of researchers and practitioners in human computer interaction, security, and privacy. The program features technical papers, workshops and tutorials, a poster session, panels and invited talks, and discussion sessions. SOUPS 2009 will be held in cooperation with ACM SIGCHI.
