VB2015 was the 25th Virus Bulletin conference and, to celebrate the occasion, we added a third stream to the programme. Dubbed "Small Talks", these talks were longer than those on the regular programme and took place in a smaller room, which allowed for a more informal discussion. Various subjects were covered, ranging from targeted attacks on civil society to the security changes in the then new Windows 10 operating system.
The Small Talks proved to be very popular and as a result, we decided to keep them on the VB2016 programme in the same format as last year.
We will also use the Small Talks room to give the authors of the three reserve papers an opportunity to present their research (unless we need them to step in to fill a space on the main programme!).
The call for last-minute papers – presentations that address up-to-the-minute and emerging topics and research – remains open until 4 September, soon after which we will be announcing the final additions to the conference programme.
In the meantime, don't forget to register for VB2016!
