VB2016 call for last-minute papers opened, discounts announced

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Aug 1, 2016

Today, we opened the call for last-minute papers for VB2016.

The VB2016 conference programme is already chock-a-block with more than 40 talks on a wide range of security subjects – but the security landscape changes quickly and, as in previous years, we have set aside a number of slots for "last-minute" papers, dealing with emerging and hot topics.

We are now calling for proposals for those last-minute papers.

How to submit

The deadline for submissions for last-minute papers is Sunday 4 September and we will make a selection very shortly thereafter, aiming to notify all speakers within a week of that date.

You can read the full call for papers here, or go directly to the abstract submission site. (Please note that, despite the name "paper", we do not require last-minute speakers to provide a full written paper.)

Register for VB2016 - places still available - discounts available

You can still register for the conference and, for those who have never attended a VB conference before, and who represent a company that has never sent anyone to attend before, we are offering a 30% discount on the registration price.

For those working in academia or for charitable organizations, we offer a 50% discount, while students in full-time education get a 70% discount on the full ticket price.

Finally, we always welcome members of the press to attend the VB conference; there are a limited number of free press passes available, for which members of the press can apply.
