Smaller, more informal format ideal for discussion and debate.
When, a few months ago, we announced the programme for VB2015, we promised 'a number of added extras'. We have already announced student tickets, which should allow those in full-time education to attend the conference at a significantly reduced price.
Today, we are pleased to announce the first four of a number of 'Small Talks' that will take place during the conference.
The Small Talks will run in parallel with the two main streams, but will be longer sessions (one to one-and-a-half hours) and take place in a smaller room. This will allow for a more informal set-up that should be conducive to discussion on a number of topics that are both important and relevant for the security community.
While the talks on the regular programme have been selected from submissions made in response to a call for papers (don't forget we'll issue a call for last-minute papers in July/August!), for the Small Talks we have approached a number of individuals and organisations and invited them to set up such sessions.
We will be announcing more Small Talks in the next few weeks, as well as some other extras. And don't forget that you get a 10% Early Bird discount if you register for the conference before 30 June.
