Upcoming Conferences and Workshops:
The CROSSING Week on Sustainable Security & Privacy
September 9 – 13, 2019 | Darmstadt, Germany
CROSSING Conference | CROSSING Summer School | IT Security Lounge
Organizer: CROSSING, Prof. Ahmad-Reza Sadeghi
The Collaborative Research Center CROSSING hosts the CROSSING Conference every two years since 2015, each year highlighting a current topic in the field of security and privacy. More than 65 scientists from cryptography, quantum physics, system security and software engineering jointly work in CROSSING and perform both basic and application-oriented research. The goal is to develop security solutions that enable secure and trustworthy IT systems for the future. CROSSING is based at TU Darmstadt and is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) since 2014.
This year’s topic of the CROSSING Conference is Sustainable Security & Privacy. The central goal of sustainable security & privacy is to maintain and guarantee security and privacy goals as well as functionality of IT systems for at least their design lifetime. This requires anticipating the unforeseeable and preparing systems for threats not known today.
The Conference will be jointly held with a CROSSING Summer School and an exclusive event for industry representatives throughout a whole week. The CROSSING Week brings together top academic as well as industry researchers to discuss and explore the challenges of designing IT systems that can provide sustainable security and privacy.

Science · Peace · Security ’19: Perspectives of Science and Technology for Peace and Security Research
September 25-27, 2019 | Lichtenberghaus, Darmstadt, Germany
Organizer: Prof. Christian Reuter (TU Darmstadt)
Co-organized by CROSSING
Scientific discoveries and technical innovations have always exerted a great influence on peace and security. Thus, new civil and military technologies are revolutionizing warfare. Particularly striking areas are the cyber warfare and the rapid development dynamics of unmanned weapons systems. Issues of nuclear disarmament, missile defense or space armament are still unresolved.
The conference „Science · Peace · Security ’19: Perspectives of Scientific-Technical Peace and Security Research“ has set itself the goal of naming and demonstrating today’s and tomorrow’s peace and security challenges, such as a scientific contribution to the challenges and problems international security and peacebuilding can and must look like in the future.
