Medical information is moving online. Simultaneously, ubiquitous and medical technologies are making homes aware, active, responsive, and thus vulnerable. Examples of unique security challenges include defense against traffic analysis with medium latency requirements for physical security or some cases of medical monitoring, or sensor networks that need to be managed (and be made trustworthy) by technically inexperienced and ill users. These challenges are compounded when the technology in the home is for the purpose of monitoring for medical purposes. This workshop brings together an interdisciplinary set of experts to discuss the unique security and privacy risks within this domain.

An interactive panel in which experts from different areas of health care, policy, social sciences, and technology are invited to highlight the issues that they wish the other members of this interdisciplinary community were listening to. Audience members will also get a chance to communicate with professionals whom they might rarely get the chance to interact with, so bring your questions and concerns.
SPIMACS is a half-day workshop: you may attend a different workshop in the afternoon as part of your registration.
