■About CODE BLUE 2023

CODE BLUE is an international cybersecurity conference where top class experts from Japan and the world gather. Celebrating its 11th year, the conference provides state-of-the-art lectures by cybersecurity experts and opportunities for information exchange and interaction that transcend national and language barriers.

By bringing together the world's top-level experts active in a variety of fields, we aim to revitalize and strengthen cooperation of cybersecurity in Asia and foster excellent young researchers in Japan and Asia.

Due to the spread of coronavirus infection, the conference was held online in 2020, as hybrid event in 2021 and 2022, but this year it will be held as an in-person event at Akasaka Intercity AIR this year*. We also hold a networking party to interact with many industry people. (*This year, we will hold the conference in-person, and will not be streaming online.)
