The 18th European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS 2013) and its record number of seven co-located workshops, were successfully hosted at Royal Holloway by the Information Security Group between the 9th to 13th September 2013.
The aim of ESORICS is to further the progress of research in computer/cyber security by establishing a European forum for bringing together leading 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.
“ESORICS is a large and prestigious event that we had to host well. We had been preparing for nearly a year and so it was fantastic that the event was so popular. Hosting seven workshops (which also have paper calls/proceedings etc.) was a great challenge, which helped to boost total registrations to 237. The smooth running of the event was thanks to a small army of volunteers from the ISG, and the conferences and audio/visual people should also be congratulated for a flawless service.”
Professor Keith Mayes (ISG), General Chair
“I was very impressed by the number of high quality research papers submitted to the ESORICS main conference. Selecting just a few was a tough task for Sushil Jajodia and myself as the Programme Chairs, but fortunately we had a large and expert Programme Committee providing enthusiastic support. The authors of accepted papers should be congratulated not only for their work, but also for the high standard of the presentations during the conference. I was pleased with the whole event and as a result I believe that the ISG/RHUL has enhanced its reputation as a host of major security conferences. The state-of-the-art auditorium and audio-visual facilities in Windsor Building juxtaposed with the history and grandeur of Founder's Building makes Royal Holloway a very attractive conference venue.”
