Welcome to the 25th European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS) 2020. This year the Symposium will be held in Guildford, United Kingdom on September 14 - 18, 2020.

COVID-19 update

Last updated Monday 4 May 2020

The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After evaluating the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the decision has been made to run ESORICS 2020 and the associated workshops as an all-digital conference experience, and it will now be an online event. Therefore, ESORICS 2020 will take place as entirely virtual. The conference and workshop dates remain the same: September 14 - 18, 2020.

The conference proceedings will be published in the LNCS series as planned. Springer have committed to publishing LNCS proceedings even in the event that conferences are cancelled, held virtually, or postponed.

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.

Call for papers

We are looking for papers discussing industrial research and development, focusing on original, high quality, unpublished research and implementation experiences.

Registration will be opening soon.
