ESORICS, the European Symposium on Research in Computer Security, is the leading research-oriented conference on the theory and practice of computer security in Europe. It takes place every two years, at various locations throughout Europe, and is co-ordinated by an independent Steering Committee.
ESORICS 2002 is jointly organized by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) and the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory, and takes place in Zurich, Switzerland.

The program committee received 83 submissions, originating from 22 countries. For fans of statistics: 55 submissions came from countries in Europe, Middle East, Africa, 16 came from Asia and 12 from North America. Leading countries were USA (11 submissions), Germany (9), France (7), Italy (7), Japan (6), UK (6). Each submission was reviewed by at least 3 program committee members or other experts. Each submission co-authored by a program committee member received two additional reviews. The program committee chair and co-chair were not allowed to submit papers. The final selection of papers was made at a program committee meeting and resulted in 16 accepted papers. In comparison, ESORICS 2000 received 75 submissions and accepted 19 of them.

The program reflects the full range of security research: we accepted papers on access control, authentication, cryptography, database security, formal methods, intrusion detection, mobile code security, privacy, secure hardware and secure protocols.

We gratefully acknowledge all authors who submitted papers for their efforts in maintaining the standards of this conference.

It is also my pleasure to thank the members of the program committee and the additional reviewers, and the members of the organisation committee for their work and support.
