Welcome to escar Europe - The World's Leading Automotive Cyber Security Conference

In regard to the current situation, we are happy to announce that the escar Europe conference 2020, scheduled for November 11 to 12, will continue as planned, with the addition of an all-new virtual online component. As a hybrid conference, escar Europe 2020 will still include live, in-person presentations and networking at the Plenary Chamber of the World Conference Center in Bonn, Germany. But for those who cannot or do not want to travel due to the current situation, escar Europe will also take place virtually.

We are currently creating an event platform so that you can take part actively at escar live from home and also communicate with other attendees. Our event platform brings you together - whether on site in Bonn or virtually:

  • Arrange 1:1 meetings on site or via video call
  • Interact with speakers, ask questions and discuss with other participants
  • Exchange ideas with exhibitors, even in virtual rooms
  • Have a look at your individual agenda on the platform, use the chat function or profit from the matchmaking features
  • and many more ...

More Information will follow shortly.
