TROOPERS for Students

For TROOPERS18 we want to try something a little different.

We have decided to do away with the Student Rates and instead ask all Students wanting to come to TROOPERS to submit a motivational letter instead.

What needs to be included in your motivational letter:

  • Tell us about yourself!
  • Why are you interested in IT-Security?
  • Why do you want to come to TROOPERS?
  • What will you contribute to TROOPERS as an attendee?

TROOPERS18 Student tickets will include free entry to our Next Generation Internet event on Monday and Tuesday, our Main TROOPERS conference on Wednesday and Thursday, and our Roundtable discussions on Friday. While we do not provide travel assistance at this time please refer to our travel page (link here!) for information regarding where to stay and how to get here. If you have questions or need assistance you can always write us at

Student tickets include:

NGI Event
Main Conference

The first round of TR18 Student Motivational Letters is officially over and we had an overwhelming number of high quality submissions(Seriously, great job!)! This means that round two will be tougher selection process and we may have to also reduce to NGI-only tickets. Please apply early! The second round will be decided on February 1, 2018. Deadline for consideration for the final round will be January 31st. All students will be notified regarding decisions within 48 hours.

Please submit your motivational letter to Please also include proof of your current Bachelor’s or Master's degree status*. This could be a valid student ID or official letter from your University. Motivational letters that do not include proof of active student status will not be considered for TROOPERS18 tickets.

* As Ph.D. students are typically employed by their university, we cannot accept Ph.D. applicantion for free tickets. Ph.D. students can however book with our Academic rate.

We look forward to seeing you at TROOPERS18!
