Montreal will host VB2018

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Oct 10, 2017

Last week, at the end of the very successful 27th Virus Bulletin conference, we announced the location for VB2018, the 28th Virus Bulletin conference, which will take place 3 to 5 October at the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth hotel in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Montreal, which also hosted VB2006, is the largest city in the French-speaking Quebec province, where people switch between French and English with as much ease as the average security researcher switches between C and Python. This seems fitting for such an international audience.

The call for papers for VB2018 will open early in 2018, with registration opening in April. Sponsorship places are already available. Please contact conference@virusbulletin.com for more details.

We look forward to seeing you in Montreal! Au plaisir de vous voir à Montréal!
