DATE 2021 became a virtual conference due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic (click here for more details)

Taking into consideration the continued erratic development of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying restrictions of worldwide travelling as well as the safety and health of the DATE community, the Organizing Committees decided to host DATE 2021 as a virtual conference in early February 2021. Unfortunately, the current situation does not allow a face-to-face conference in Grenoble, France.

The Organizing Committees are working intensively to create a virtual conference that gives as much of a real conference atmosphere as possible.

The rise of cyberattacks constitutes a major challenge for our societies, with an estimated cost of $6 trillion per year by 2021 (Forbes). In addition to their disastrous economic and social impact, these attacks weaken the confidence of citizens in the digital transition of activities and cause serious international tensions. As a consequence, the development of new sustainable solutions that enable end-to-end security, privacy and infrastructure resilience is now a multi-dimension challenge: technical, business, scientific and social.
The Grenoble Alpes Cybersecurity Institute – in short, Cyber@Alps – aims at undertaking ground-breaking interdisciplinary research in order to address these cybersecurity and privacy protection challenges. Our main technical focus are on cost effective secure elements, security of critical infrastructures all along their life cycle, vulnerability analysis and global challenges in terms of risk analysis and validation of large systems, including practical resilience across the industry and the society. Our approach to cybersecurity is holistic, encompassing technical, legal, law-enforcement, economic, social, diplomatic, military and intelligence-related aspects with strong partnerships with the private sector and robust national and international cooperation with leading institutions in France and abroad.
