No, seriously it's a lot of learning and fun! Time to tickle your gray cells and submit your research.

Training: 26th - 28th Feb - 2019

Conference: 1st - 2nd Mar - 2019

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 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
