Call for Papers: VB2017

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Jan 19, 2017

The call for papers for VB2017, which will take place 4-6 October in Madrid, Spain, is now open!

Have you analysed a new malware campaign? Tracked an APT actor? Discovered a new vulnerability? Developed a new tool? Launched a new security program? Then we want to hear from you! Submit an abstract for a chance to present your work at the 27th Virus Bulletin International Conference.

We are particularly interested in hearing from those of you who work outside the security industry. Whether you work in security in a large corporation, a small company, a government department or a non-profit, we want to hear what malicious activities you are seeing and what you are doing to stop them from impacting your organisation.

Have you been hit by an advanced attack - or maybe a frustratingly mundane one? What tools are you using to detect and analyse the threats to your organisation? Are you learning a lot from your Red Team exercises? Have you set up a successful education programme for your users? It's these stories that the industry really needs, and wants, to hear - so come and tell us!

Virus Bulletin is not only one of the longest running security conferences in the world, it is also one of the most global, attracting speakers and attendees from all over the world. As collaboration is more essential than ever in today's threat landscape, Virus Bulletin is the place to share thoughts and ideas - and to learn from others.

The deadline for submitting a proposal is Sunday 19 March 2017.

A small number of slots on the conference programme will be reserved for very 'hot' research topics; the call for these 'last-minute' papers will go out in the summer. Registration for the conference will open in April 2017.

Should you have questions about the call for papers, or if you have any suggestions about the conference and its programme, don't hesitate to email me at martijn.grooten@virusbulletin.com.
