VB2015 conference programme announced

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Mar 31, 2015

From drones to elephants: an exciting range of topics will be covered in Prague.

In six months' time, security researchers from around the world will gather in Prague for the 25th Virus Bulletin conference. Today we are excited to reveal the conference programme.

As every year, the selection committee's task was very difficult with some tough choices to be made, and there were some high quality submissions among the two thirds that didn't make it onto this year's programme.

The VB2015 programme includes 38 papers on a wide range of security topics. As in previous years, the presentations will run in two parallel streams and the programme includes both technical and less technical presentations.

Just a small selection of the many highlights includes:

The full programme, including abstracts for each paper, can be viewed here.

This year's conference will include two keynote speakers — one at the opening of the conference and one at the very end — whose names will be announced soon. The programme will also include a number of added extras, which will also be announced in coming weeks.

A little closer to the conference (in mid-to-late August), a call for 'last-minute' papers will be issued — with the aim of these sessions being to present emerging material that is as up-to-the-minute as possible at the time of the event. We have reserved ten places on the programme for this purpose.

VB2015 takes place 30 September to 2 October 2015 in Prague, Czech Republic — online registration will open soon — we'd love to see you there!
