Virus Bulletin is seeking submissions from those wishing to present at VB2005 in Dublin - so set aside some time between the season's festive parties to get writing!
Virus Bulletin is seeking submissions from those wishing to present at VB2005, the Fifteenth Virus Bulletin International Conference, which will take place 5-7 October 2005 at the Burlington hotel, Dublin, Ireland.
The conference will include two full days of 40-minute presentations running in concurrent streams: Technical AV, Corporate AV and Spam (both technical and corporate).
Submissions are invited on all subjects relevant to the anti-virus and anti-spam arenas. VB welcomes the submission of papers that will provide delegates with ideas, advice and/or practical techniques, and encourages presentations that include practical demonstrations of techniques or new technologies.
The following is a list of suggested topics elicited from attendees at VB2004. Please note that this list is not exhaustive, and papers on these and any other AV and spam-related subjects will be considered.
VB also invites you to send suggestions for any particular presenters you would like to hear from at VB2005. Please send speaker nominations, along with details of why you would like to hear from them (for example, are they an excellent presenter; is their field of research of particular interest; do they have very strong or controversial opinions?) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Abstracts of approximately 200 words must reach the Editor of Virus Bulletin no later than Thursday 10 March 2005. Submissions received after this date will not be considered. Abstracts should be sent as RTF or plain text files to email@example.com. Please include full contact details with each submission.
Following the close of the call for papers all submissions will be anonymised before being reviewed by a selection committee; abstracts will be assessed for relevance, technical accuracy, novelty of the idea and so on. Authors will be notified of the status of their paper by email.
Those submitting papers should bear in mind that speakers must be available to present their session at the conference in Dublin (specifically on 6 and 7 October 2005), and that the alloted time for each presentation will be 40 minutes.
As part of your speaking obligation, you are required to provide a paper that will be included in the conference proceedings. Authors are advised in advance that, should their paper be selected for the conference programme, the deadline for submission of the completed paper will be Monday 6 June 2005 and that full papers should not exceed 8,000 words.
