Call for last-minute technical papers

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Jul 17, 2009

Submissions invited for technical 'turbo' talks at VB Geneva.

Virus Bulletin is seeking submissions from those wishing to present last-minute technical papers at VB2009.

The VB conference includes a programme of 40-minute presentations running in two concurrent streams: Technical and Corporate, covering topics that include in-the-cloud technologies, anti-spam testing, automated analysis, rogue security software, web threats, JavaScript security, online fraud, legal issues and more. The full schedule can be seen here.

In addition to the 40-minute presentations, a portion of the technical stream has been set aside for last-minute technical presentations. The last-minute papers are shorter speaking slots (30 minutes) and intended to provide the opportunity for presenters to speak on up-to-the-minute topics. As such, the papers will be selected just 18 days prior to the conference start.

The last-minute presentations will be selected by a committee consisting of members of the VB advisory board, with the schedule announced two weeks prior to the conference.

The deadline for submissions is 28 August 2009.

More details, including a link to the online submission form can be found here.

VB2009 takes place 23-25 September 2009 at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Geneva, Switzerland. Click here to register.
