VB2016 call for last-minute papers opened, discounts announced

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Aug 1, 2016

Today, we opened the call for last-minute papers for VB2016.

The VB2016 conference programme is already chock-a-block with more than 40 talks on a wide range of security subjects – but the security landscape changes quickly and, as in previous years, we have set aside a number of slots for "last-minute" papers, dealing with emerging and hot topics.

We are now calling for proposals for those last-minute papers.

How to submit

The deadline for submissions for last-minute papers is Sunday 4 September and we will make a selection very shortly thereafter, aiming to notify all speakers within a week of that date.

You can read the full call for papers here, or go directly to the abstract submission site. (Please note that, despite the name "paper", we do not require last-minute speakers to provide a full written paper.)
