■Student staff 

CODE BLUE is looking for student volunteers to help run the conference and provide support as a member of CODE BLUE. It is a great opportunity for student staff to directly experience the excitement of an international conference where researchers and engineers at the forefront of cyber security gather. You will be able to attend cutting-edge lectures, work with like-minded colleagues, and interact with representatives from sponsor companies. Plus, if you get the chance, you can interact directly with the lecturers!

Comments from student staff (excerpts from the 2023 survey):

-I was able to interact with many people involved in security and make connections with people in the industry. I was also able to listen to high-level lectures and recognize again that I am not good enough, which gave me motivation to grow in the future.

-The best part was that I was able to interact with many company representatives and students of the same age who are interested in security. I was able to talk with people who I don't have the opportunity to meet offline because I live in Kyushu, an area far from the metropolitan area, and it was a very stimulating experience.

-It was very stimulating and I was able to make connections with students of my generation who are interested in security. In addition, by listening to the lectures with an international perspective, I was reminded of the importance of not only solving domestic computer security problems, but also cooperating on international issues across national boundaries.

■ CODE BLUE's efforts to nurture the next generation

CODE BLUE continues to be held with the aim of advancing the security industry in Asia by creating an environment where security professionals can collaborate regardless of company or country borders. CODE BLUE also aims to help discover, develop, and support aspiring young researchers in Japan and Asia by encouraging them to enter the international arena.

In particular, We are convinced that fostering the next generation of security professionals is necessary for advancing the security industry in Asia. CODE BLUE provides opportunities for exchange and friendly competition with engineers from overseas by awarding scholarships to outstanding young researchers and providing opportunities for student staff to attend lectures. 

More than 10 years have passed since the first CODE BLUE was held, and as a result of promoting networking between students and companies and industry organizations, as well as between students, some students have found employment in the cyber security industry, and some have even become speakers. Efforts to nurture the next generation are showing results, such as the emergence of human resources.


CODE BLUE is an international cyber security conference that brings together top-class experts from Japan and abroad. This year marks the 12th CODE BLUE conference, which provides cutting-edge lectures by cyber security experts and opportunities for information exchange and interaction across national and language borders.

By bringing together the world's top experts in a variety of fields, the conference aims to revitalize and strengthen cooperation in security in Asia, including Japan, and to discover talented young researchers from Japan and other Asian countries and encourage them to enter the international arena.
