Is it an in-person event?
Yes, all the REVULN conferences are traditional physical events with attendees meeting in-person.

What is this event?
REVULN is a series of free meetings for invited guests where participants attend the presentations of international speakers and connect with all the selected guests.
The idea behind the events, the way they are organized, and the non-commercial goals are unique. No conferences hosted by private companies have similar features.
Information about the previous events are available here.

Is it a marketing or promotional event?
No. We do NOT promote, advertise or sell anything, and we do NOT accept sponsors.
The event has been created, planned, and financed by us just for speakers and attendees, completely for free and without any business, promotional activity, or marketing purpose.

How joining as speaker?
Please check our Call for Papers for details.
We provide free accommodation for the international speakers holding presentations for the main topic on the first day.
No "paper" is requested because this is a Call for Speakers where you will only be asked to provide the slides of your presentation before the event.
Remember that this is an in-person event and, if selected, you should be able to travel without any problems, this point is very important right now.

How do you select the speakers?
We follow some rules for the selection like giving priority to speakers from different countries in the region of the event.
Submissions for keynotes, from corporate/sales positions, or with undefined content are usually not considered.
Priority goes to talks covering the own experience of the speakers, their current research and projects (both professional and personal), information about how their organization operate in the country, and so on.
Academic presentations, if submitted, are evaluated case-by-case because we would prefer those with a real practical implementation of what has been already presented to academic conferences.
Very important is how the presentation is performed and how comprehensible is the content for both participants with deep knowledge and without any skills in that topic, it's useful to catch their attention and curiosity on the content.
Additionally our suggestion is to submit to the Call for Papers even if not matching the main topic on which the first part of the conference is focused, in fact the main topic may change later if there are more interesting submissions covering other subjects, or due to different interests caused by a postponement of the event to a later date.

Is the event strictly technical and focused on cybersecurity?
No, the event is not an "hacking" conference and our attendees cover various fields with knowledge in different areas.
That's the reason why we prefer technical content presented in a way that may be understandable and enjoyable also by people who have no specific background in that field.
Cybersecurity still is one of the main points of most of the presentations since it touches every fields nowadays.
