CODE BLUE was born in 2013, named after the emergency medical code from "Code Blue".We hope many people interested in the development of a safe and sound networked society would gather together and discuss ideas.This year will be the fifth year anniversary of our conference.
In the 5 years since our launch network security has become even more important aspect of a safe networked society.
We -CODE BLUE- have always encouraged "Innovative" and "Creative" papers regarding Information Security research to be presented to spark open discussions about their topics and shed light on the research.In this year we would like to invite papers that cover not only "Technical" aspects, but also topics regarding legal, policies, economics, psychology and others aspects of information security research and its relation to society in general.
Also, we are planning to offer a scholarship up to 2.5 million yen for a selected Youth Track speaker.We hope that this will be an incentive for more young people to become interested in information security as a profession.
We are waiting for your submission!
