The Virus Bulletin conference returns home: VB2019 to take place in London

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Oct 5, 2018

In July 1989, the first ever Virus Bulletin magazine was published from its home in Oxfordshire, UK – a monthly publication focusing on the emerging threat of computer viruses. Two years later, the inaugural Virus Bulletin Conference took place on the Channel Island of Jersey.

In the year in which Virus Bulletin celebrates its 30th birthday, and 28 years of the Virus Bulletin Conference, the event returns 'home' to the UK, with VB2019 taking place at the Novotel London West hotel in London, 2-4 October.

As a global hub for finance and business, London plays a pivotal role in anything 'cyber' and the city's multicultural character makes it an excellent location for one of the most international conferences in the security field.

London, of course, is also a great tourist destination for those who want to spend some extra days in the city before or after the event. It is home to the world-famous British Museum, the Tower of London and St Paul's Cathedral. You can eat great food from around the world, travel around on double-decker buses and take a boat trip along the Thames.

The city of Salisbury, with its famous 123-metre tall cathedral, is only a short train ride away.

The call for papers for VB2019 will open early in 2019, with registration opening in April. Partnership opportunities are already available. Please contact allison.sketchley@virusbulletin.com for more details.

We look forward to seeing you in London!
