Board, after much debate, the GCC would like to present for approval the
location for 2011 OWASP AppSec EU - Dublin, Ireland.  I am attaching the two
finalist  proposals from both Ireland and Greece.


Dublin and London would be joining efforts for this event.  The venue would
be Trinity University, host of the previous Ireland events, and the event
would be held in May.


The committee chose Dublin over Greece for 2011 for several reasons:


1.       The uniting of two very strong chapters in EU provides a strong
foundation for ground support and sponsorships.

2.      Both chapters have hosted successful OWASP events in the past.

3.      Economic instability in Greece raises concerns about the
availability of sturdy infrastructure (airline, taxi, hotel, currency)

4.      Dublin is "budget friendly" 

5.      Dublin and London are geographically and linguistically closer to
the US with direct flights from most US cities.


We are thrilled that we had two strong proposals for EU 2011.  We are hoping
that with a ramping of EU activity this year in Sweden and next year in
Dublin, the stage will be set for a strong draw and event in Greece in 2012.


We would like to be able to make the announcement next week in Stockholm, so
your prompt review is appreciated.
