About C2C-CTF

A global Capture the Flag competition.

INCS-CoE is an International Charter of six universities from Japan, US, and UK, and is operated by 25 universities from Japan, US, UK, Israel, France, Australia, and other countries for international and inter-university research collaboration in cyber security. The Country-to-Country CTF (C2C CTF) is now nearing the end of the inaugral five-year plan that started in 2020. C2C-CTF events have been held (physically and/or virtually) at: Royal Holloway, University of London, UK in 2020; Ben-Gurion University and Israel Institute of Technology, Israel in 2021; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA in 2022; and, Keio University, Japan in 2023.

In 2024, Edith Cowan University will host the C2C-CTF as a fully on-line, virtual event. We invite university students from our partners across the world to participate in the 2024 competition.
