Our objective is to expand the UPS researchers’ knowledge of user experience (UX) methods for understanding and designing secure experiences. Your interests that you express during the call for participation will determine the specific UX topics covered during the workshop. Our goal is to equip you with a new set of UX methods and tools to apply to your research, and we hope to stimulate discussions about the applications of user experience design and research in UPS.
💁 Workshop Format
Our workshop will be split into two parts.
Asynchronous online tutorials where participants will be introduced to UX methods that can be applied to usable privacy and security research. The tutorials will be made available to the workshop participants one week before the scheduled live workshop. This component takes approximately 2 hours and can be completed on your own time.
A synchronous workshop session where participants will discuss UX methods and practice using the methods with other UPS researchers. Our live workshop will be 3 hours in duration. Date and time TBA.
📝 Application to Participate
As this is a highly interactive and hands-on workshop, we can accommodate up to a maximum of 20 participants. To apply for participation in the workshop, users will complete a

We will use information from this form to aid us in designing our workshop (e.g., choosing which UX methods to focus on during discussion) and selecting participants who will benefit most from the workshop.
Selection Criteria: We will select participants based on the responses to these questions to ensure diversity of ideas within our workshop. If selected participants will be asked to commit to attending the workshop or otherwise notify the workshop organizers atleast 2 weeks before the event. A waitlist will be established after the first 20 registrants in case a spot opens up closer to the workshop. Within the participation form, we will also collect participants’ time zone to determine when to schedule the workshop so that most participants can be accommodated.
