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.
Prof. Michael Waidner from the department of Computer Science is the General chair of the 26th European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS).
