VB2019 call for last-minute papersVB2019-London-withdate-325w.jpg

Virus Bulletin is seeking submissions from those wishing to present 'last-minute' papers at VB2019, the 29th Virus Bulletin International Conference, which will take place 2 to 4 October 2019 in London, UK.

What is a last-minute paper?

In addition to the presentations already scheduled on the VB2019 programme, 9 speaking slots have been set aside for 'last-minute' presentations, the aim of which is to present 'hot' research — material that is truly up-to-the-minute.

Those selected are asked to give a 30-minute talk on Thursday 3 October — since these sessions are chosen so close to the event, we don't require a written paper for the last-minute presentations.


How to submit a proposal

Please use our online abstract submission form to submit a last-minute paper proposal for VB2019. You will need to include:

  • an abstract of approximately 300 words outlining the proposed presentation
  • full contact details with each submission
  • Note: deadline for last-minute paper submissions 1 September 2019. Submissions received later than 1 September 2019 will not be considered.

The abstract submission form can be found here.

Following the close of the call for papers all submissions will be reviewed by a selection committee; authors will be notified of the status of their paper by email. We aim to notify those whose last-minute papers have been selected no later than a week after the close of the call for papers.

One presenter per selected paper will be offered a complimentary conference registration, while co-authors will be offered registration at a 50% reduced rate (up to a maximum of two co-authors). VB regrets that it is not able to assist with speakers' travel and accommodation costs.

Any queries relating to the call for papers should be addressed to editor@virusbulletin.com.
