In 2019, Luxembourg had the great fortune to host the leading European conference on IT security: the 24th edition of the European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS2019).
ESORICS was founded in 1990 and is held in different European cities. Keynote speeches at the September 23-27 event covered a variety of topics, from security problems in machine learning to verifiability and privacy in electronic voting systems. Leading researchers also presented work on some of the most important issues in computer security, such as information leakage, signatures and re-encryption, secure protocols, blockchain and smart contracts, cryptographic protocols, and software security. The venue for the five-day event was Parc Alvisse Hotel, a modern hotel tucked in a green valley on the outskirts of Luxembourg City. In addition to four-star amenities and food, attendees enjoyed a day trip to the Moselle valley, where Luxembourg’s most renowned wines are produced, and a dinner cruise along the river.
