Welcome to the 26th European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS) 2021. Next year's Symposium will be held in Darmstadt, Germany on October 04 – 08, 2021.

Event format

ESORICS 2021 will be organised as a hybrid conference: digitally with remote participation and talks and physically with presence in Darmstadt. The health and safety of the symposium participants is our number one priority hence the digital part may be increased depending on the development of COVID-19.

Submission notice

In 2021 ESORICS symposium moves to two submission cycles, resulting in changes to review process and submission dates, see Paper Submission Information for information.

About the symposium

Computer security is concerned with the protection of information 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.
