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
