Call for Papers: VB2015 Prague

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Dec 19, 2014

VB seeks submissions for the 25th Virus Bulletin Conference.

Virus Bulletin is seeking submissions from those wishing to present papers at VB2015, which will take place 30 September to 2 October 2015 at the Clarion Congress Hotel in Prague, Czech Republic.

Originally started as an annual gathering of anti-virus experts, the VB conference has since evolved to become one of the world's leading security conferences, covering a broad range of topics in the realm of IT security. It is also one of the longest-running security conferences, and will celebrate its 25th edition next year.

The conference will include a programme of 30-minute presentations running in two concurrent streams. Presentations vary from the very technical to those aimed at a broader security audience. Like last year, submissions are invited on topics that fall into any of the following areas:

  • Malware & botnets
  • Anti-malware tools & methods
  • Mobile devices
  • Spam & social networks
  • Hacking & vulnerabilities
  • Network security

A more detailed list of topics, suggestions and the full call for papers can be found here.

The deadline for submission of proposals is Friday 13 March 2015. Abstracts should be submitted via the online abstract submission system.

There are also still a number of sponsorship opportunities available for VB2015.
