Event format

ESORICS 2021 will be held as a virtual event on October 04–08, 2021.

Submission notice

About the symposium

Computer security is concerned with the protection of information and computing systems in environments where there is a possibility of intrusion or malicious action. The aim of ESORICS is to further the progress of research in computer security by establishing a European forum for bringing together researchers in this area, by promoting the exchange of ideas with system developers and by encouraging links with researchers in related areas.

Progressively organised in a series of European countries, the symposium is confirmed as the European research event in computer security. Since its inception in 1990, ESORICS has been hosted in a series of European countries and has established itself as the premiere European research event in computer security.

Organizers and sponsors

The 26th edition of ESORICS is organised by the Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology and the National Research Center for Applied Cybersecurity ATHENE in Darmstadt, Germany. The conference is also supported by Springer.
