Virus Bulletin encourages experienced speakers and newcomers alike to submit proposals for VB2019

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Feb 19, 2019

There is a little less than a month left until the deadline (17 March) of the call for papers for VB2019, the 29th Virus Bulletin International Conference.

Over almost three decades, the Virus Bulletin Conference has built a reputation as a conference that produces solid content. Some take this to mean that we are looking for experienced speakers with decades' worth of experience doing security research. This is not the case.

We aim for a diverse programme, not just in topics and in speakers' backgrounds, but also when it comes to the experience of speakers. We can all learn something from the fresh insights a new speaker can bring, or from the knowledge of a speaker who has thus far kept their work to themselves. Several people have given their first conference talk at VB only to go on to speak at many other events.

We aim to make the conference experience as pleasant as possible and won't interfere much with the more experienced speakers, but we're happy to help less experienced speakers with their papers and their talks if they wish.

The same goes for their abstract submissions, for that matter – don't hesitate to reach out (martijn.grooten@virusbulletin.com) if you have any questions, or if you're still not sure whether you have something to bring. Otherwise, why not go ahead and submit your proposal now?
