ISTS 2020 will run from February 28th to March 1st, 2020. The keynote speech will be given on the evening of February 28th, and the competition will start the following morning and continue into the next day.


ISTS 2020 will be held in Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences at the main campus of the Rochester Institute of Technology. More information about navigation to RIT can be found on their website.


ISTS is hosted by RITSEC, the student-run computer security club at the Rochester Institute of Technology. All of the event planning, content creation, and day-of volunteering is done by dedicated members of RITSEC.

All teams that compete at ISTS are composed entirely of college students. Each year, several universities around the country are invited to send a team to ISTS. RIT students form the remaining teams.
