Welcome to nullcon Goa 2018!
Nullcon is an annual security conference held in Goa, India. The focus of the conference is to showcase the next generation of offensive and defensive security technology. We happily open doors to researchers and hackers around the world and the universe, working on the next big thing in security and request everyone to submit their new research.
If you love security, hacking, cutting edge research, Goa, trance, then the universe will conspire to send you to nullcon :)
No, seriously it is a lot of learning and fun! Time to tickle your gray cells and submit your research.
Training: 27th Feb - 1st Mar 2018
Conference: 2nd - 3rd Mar 2018

Tips for submitting

  • Submit early - Submitting early increases the chance of acceptance in the first round of review itself. The more you delay the more competition you have with other papers that are submitted later.
  • Technical description - The more concrete technical details you provide the better chance you have of getting accepted. Reviewers usually give low score to submissions that have very small or vague abstract and may not request for more details. The best way is to provide a supporting full technical paper that explains all the vulnerabilities, exploits etc in detail.
  • Declining a paper - Please take rejection as a suggestion for improvement somewhere in the paper and not as an offense. Declining a paper does not mean your submission is not good. There are many parameters we look at when reviewing a paper, technical in-depth is only one of them. Many times we have to let go of really good talks because there is already an accepted paper on similar subject or too many good submissions. We want you to succeed and are only trying to help you in preparing you for future submissions. So, cheer up and get ready for the next submission.
  • Review comments - We do not ask our review board for comments.
  • Category - If the submission is (being) presented prior nullcon or if it is an enhancement of an already presented research, please DO NOT mark it as new research as it
       falls under current research.
