The 12th Annual Malware Technical Exchange Meeting

July 13-15, 2021 | Sandia National Laboratories | Virtual Event

Call for Participation

The Malware Technical Exchange Meeting (MTEM) is an annual event that brings together practitioners and researchers from government, Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs), academia, and industry. In its twelfth year, MTEM will promote discussion on the important problems in malware, reverse engineering, incident response, trends analysis, and research. New for 2021, MTEM will be an online event and will again feature highly relevant keynote speakers and presentations on new and novel work.

General Session

The 2021 Malware Technical Exchange Meeting will be hosted virtually by Sandia National Laboratories July 13–15, 2021 at the UNCLASSIFIED//FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY discussion level. This year’s theme is: “Community!” The importance of coming together as a strong community has been reinforced over the past year due to high profile cyber incidents, political unrest, and even the pandemic. The MTEM community is one antidote to the exponential growth of malware challenges, especially as the threat surface changes in unexpected and sudden ways.
