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. Papers offering novel research contributions in computer security are solicited for submission to the Symposium. The primary focus is on original, high quality, unpublished Research and implementation experiences. We encourage submissions of papers discussing industrial research and development.
