The 2021 edition of CSAW, the largest international academic cybersecurity competition, was held from November 10 to 14, 2021. The European edition was organized by Grenoble-INP / Esisar and the LCIS laboratory, with the support of Valence Romans Agglo and IRT Nanoelec. It brought together 104 finalist students representing 35 European universities from 10 different countries.
They faced each other in 3 competitions in front of a jury made of 10 experts from industry and academia. “For this 2021 edition, we have observed a significant increase in the level of students for the Embedded Security Challenge, a competition dealing specifically with material security issues, a very dynamic field in European universities”, outlines David Hély, teacher and researcher at Grenoble-INP / Esisar and organizer of the event.
“The jury of the Applied Research competition, once again praised the exceptional quality of the presentations made by the young researchers. The experts are already volunteering for the edition 2022. Finally, we observed an undeniable increase of candidates participating in qualifying events in Europe, as well as a stronger commitment by universities to promote the participation of their students in the various finals (via press releases or on social networks).”
