I'm forwarding this message, originally from the Election Law listserv, as I think the event/CFP would be of interest to many on this list as well.

FYI for voting technology scholars...



In many countries, most votes are counted and transported electronically, but there are numerous practical and policy implications of introducing electronic machines into the voting process. Both voting technology and its regulations are very much in flux, with open concerns including accuracy, reliability, robustness, security, transparency, equality, privacy, usability, and accessibility.

USENIX is sponsoring the 2012 Electronic Voting Technology Workshop/Workshop on Trustworthy Elections (EVT/WOTE '12). EVT/WOTE brings together researchers from a variety of disciplines, ranging from computer science and human-computer interaction experts through political scientists, legal experts, election administrators, and voting equipment vendors. EVT/WOTE seeks to publish original research on important problems in all aspects of electronic voting.

EVT/WOTE '12 will be a two-day event, Monday, August 6, and Tuesday, August 7, 2012, co-located with the 21st USENIX Security Symposium in Bellevue, WA. In addition to paper presentations, the workshop may include panel discussions with substantial time devoted to questions and answers. The workshop papers will be published electronically.

Attendance at the workshop will be open to the public, although talks and refereed paper presentations will be by invitation only. There will be an award for the best paper.
