What is CODE BLUE?

CODE BLUE is an international conference where the world's top class information security specialists gather to give cutting edge talks, and is a place for all participants to exchange information and interact beyond borders and languages.

CODE BLUE will be inviting well-known researchers from all over the world to share their latest findings, as well as discovering researchers in Japan and other Asian nations, and disseminating their findings and achievements to the world.

In the medical world, the phrase "CODE BLUE" means "emergency situation" and in some cases "relative staff need to gather in a designated area." As technology and society move forward and IoT (Internet of Things) is becoming a reality, security is increasingly becoming an urgent issue. The Internet world also needs to gather researchers to collaborate and think together about ways to respond to emergency situations, and come up with possible solutions.

CODE BLUE aims to be a place where international connections and communities form and grow, and will contribute to a better Internet world by connecting people through CODE (technology), beyond and across the BLUE (oceans).

According to the government announcement made in June of this year (2012) our country lacks at least 80000 security personnel. To build a strong cyberspace that can lead the world it is essential to develop human resources whom can take an active role on a global scale.Hence it is very important to attend and host international conferences. Many in the industry have expressed the lack of vendor neutral information security conferences where world class security experts can come together to discuss and present their daily research.

This lead to the creation of CODE BLUE, an international information security conference originating from Japan.

At this conference we plan to aggregate a wide range of innovative and creative research topics and presentations all aspects of information security.

I look forward on this conference activities that will bring together domestic and international researchers,bridge research with industry and cultivate information security personnel who can take an active role on a global scale.
