ESORICS is one of the most prestigious scientific conferences in cybersecurity (Core Ranking A). This year, for the first time, tutorials will be held prior to the conference. The first two tutorials are free of charge, to enable as many interested people as possible to participate and to whet the appetite for the conference.

First tutorial on side channel attacks

Dr. Yossi Oren from Ben-Gurion University will kick off the tutorial series on June 30. The title of his talk is "PP0." The talk is on cache-based side-channel attacks, which occur via an Internet browser's cache, and appropriate countermeasures. Dr. Oren is a researcher at the Department of Software and Information Systems Engineering and a member of Ben-Gurion University's Cyber­security Research Center. The second tutorial on July 12 will be given by Prof. Anna Squicciarini, associate professor at the College of Information Sciences and Technology, Pennsylvania State University.

Pre-registration for ESORICS open now

Those who would like to attend both tutorials can now register free of charge here: All other tutorials can be attended with the purchase of a conference ticket – at least seven tutorials are currently planned. All tutorials will last between one and two hours. All speakers will provide a comprehensive look at the current research, followed by discussions with the participants. Questions and lively discussions are strongly encouraged. More tutorials are planned on transient execution attacks, industrial control systems, connected cars and airplanes, secure cryptographic coding in Java, and more.
