Nullcon is an annual security conference held in Goa, India. The focus of the conference lies on showcasing the next generation of offensive and defensive security technologies. 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's a lot of learning and fun! Time to tickle your gray cells and submit your research.
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 clear-cut technical details you provide, the better chance you have of getting accepted. Reviewers usually give a low score to submissions that have very short or vague abstracts and may not request more details. The best way is to provide a supporting full technical paper that explains all the vulnerabilities, exploits, etc. in detail.
Rejection of 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 security professionals aim to publish and present their findings at renowned security conferences. However, publishing such research is no easy task, and rejection is a common occurrence. Many times, we have to let go of really good talks because there is already an accepted paper on a similar subject or too many good submissions or your submission is already presented/published elsewhere. 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.
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.
New research -
At nullcon we focus on new research which has not been published / presented prior to nullcon conference dates. New research submissions get priority over current research. If your submission is a rework / enhancement or your existing research or similar presentation to what is already delivered / published elsewhere, it will get less scoring when compared to new research.
Past Talks -

We have an external review panel that scores the papers. Final decision on acceptance/rejection of papers is based on this scoring and our internal decision. We do not ask our review board to provide comments for the submissions.
