VB2019 call for last-minute papers closes on Sunday (1 Sept)

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Aug 29, 2019

The majority of the VB2019 programme was announced in April, and though we like to see VB as a conference that looks beyond the hype, we are more than a little proud that several of the talks have made the security news in recent months: from Operation Soft Cell to the Machete APT group and from the Sea Turtle attacks to the weaponization of RTF documents by APT groups.

However, many things have happened since April, and to allow room on the programme to cover recent developments we always set aside a number of slots for 'last-minute papers'.

The call for last-minute papers closes on Sunday 1 September. Despite the name, we do not require those selected to write a paper; all we ask is for those selected to deliver a 30-minute talk at VB2019 in London.

The 1 September deadline is strict. This is in part because of the tight time limit (we intend to announce the selected talks late next week) but also because we can afford to: we already have more submissions than we need ─ however you shouldn't see this as a reason not to submit!

So don't forget to submit an abstract by Sunday and don't hesitate to contact us (conference@virusbulletin.com) should you have any questions!
