ESORICS 2021 in Darmstadt

ESORICS – short for European Symposium on Research in Computer Security - is a top academic conference on security with the participation of industry organizations. 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 and industries. The conference takes place every year in changing cities in Europe.

ATHENE, the National Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research, and Fraunhofer SIT, both part of Europe’s largest cluster for applied cybersecurity in Darmstadt, Germany, are hosting the 26th edition of ESORICS in 2021.

When does it take place?

ESORICS 2021 takes place from October 4th to 8th, 2021


What is the format?

This year, because of the corona situation, ESORICS will be an online conference with remote virtual participation. ESORIC comprises three conference days with contributions from top scientists followed by two packed workshop days. In addition, there will be poster sessions, for the first time an industry track, breakfast and lunch talks, a best paper award plus many opportunities to network.


Who is the audience?

Top European (and increasingly also top global) scientists, PhD students, graduates, researchers, faculty and industry members – because of the online/hybrid format we are expecting even more attendees than in previous years.


Why should you sponsor ESORICS?

Here are five reasons why you should sponsor the symposium:

  1. Engage with a leading global scientific community. With ESORICS initially being (foremost) an European symposium it has gained more and more traction amongst the global scientific security community. Leveraging the hybrid format, our goal is to increase the footprint and attract scientists from all over the globe.
  2. Leverage ESORICS for recruiting. Attended by top scientists, PhD, ambitious students and industry colleagues, ESORICS is a great platform to post your vacancies and reach out to potential employees!
  3. Showcase your research. Leverage ESORICS to launch your organization’s findings, research and technology and discuss it with top scientists and industry experts.
  4. Make your company stand out. Present your brand, technology and knowhow to technology enthusiasts, leading innovators and early adopters. Position your enterprise as a leading player in the strategic field of IT security and privacy.
  5. Benefit from new sponsorship opportunities. Leverage new sponsorship opportunities tailored to your needs and benefit from our modular approach by choosing the elements that meet your objectives best.

With ESORICS, we are taking a new approach to sponsorship. We have a mandatory core package that provides great value for your money, demonstrates your support for the research community and creates visibility. We also have 18 additional modules that you can book – focused on branding, content and recruitment. Each module has a price tag, e.g. depending on its exclusivity, audience exposure and frequency! Choose your modules and we will create an attractive bundle including add-ons for more comprehensive sponsorship packages.
