                      The Workshop on the Economics of
                   Securing the Information Infrastructure


                            October 23-24, 2006
                               Washington, DC

                              CALL FOR PAPERS

Our information infrastructure suffers from decades-old vulnerabilities,
from the low-level algorithms that select communications routes to the
application-level services on which we are becoming increasingly
dependent. Are we investing enough to protect our infrastructure? How  
can we best overcome the inevitable bootstrapping problems that  
impede efforts to add security to this infrastructure? Who stands to  
benefit and who stands to lose as security features are integrated  
into these basic services? How can technology investment decisions  
best be
presented to policymakers?

We invite infrastructure providers, developers, social scientists,
computer scientists, legal scholars, security engineers, and especially
policymakers to help address these and other related questions.  
Authors of accepted papers will have the opportunity to present their  
work to government and corporate policymakers. We encourage  
research from authors in multiple fields and multiple institutions.
