VB2018 call for last-minute papers opened

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Jul 27, 2018

Virus Bulletin has opened the call for last-minute papers for VB2018.

The VB2018 programme already boasts some 40 talks, with a few more exciting things to be added very soon (watch this space!). But neither threats nor research stop the moment we publish the conference programme, which means that there will be a lot of material that is simply too new to have made it onto the programme through the original call for papers.

It is for this reason – and for this kind of 'hot' research – that we have set aside nine speaking slots on the VB2018 programme specifically for 'last-minute' papers that deal with up-to-the-minute material.

Submit a proposal before Sunday 2 September 2018 for a chance to get one of these nine slots!

Competition is likely to be tough as this CFP tends to be several times oversubscribed. Do keep this in mind when submitting your abstract, but don't let it discourage you: past conferences have seen some great talks from both experienced and first-time speakers alike.

Presenters of last-minute papers are not required to write a paper, just to deliver an excellent 30-minute presentation on relevant hot research. We aim to notify those whose submissions have been selected within a week of the closing of the call for papers.

And of course, to make sure you don't miss out on the event, don't forget to register! (Should you be selected as a last-minute presenter, you will receive a refund of your registration fee.)
