All -
Just to bring everyone up to speed on AppSec USA 2013 hosted in NYC.  The
local team had a good call yesterday to discuss the initial event
logistics.  The team agreed that we WILL have training at the event - so
the model will stay at 2 days of training followed by 2 days of conference.

The only "hurdle" at this point is finalizing the location and dates.
*Currently
the only feasible dates for locations in NYC that can accommodate our large
expected attendance (1500+) is Nov 18-21, 2012.*

>From a larger Foundation perspective - I think we can make these dates work
considering that we haven't finalized the dates for the AppSec Latam event
and it sounds like the parties interested in submitting for that event
would be willing to hold AppSec Latam in early Oct to avoid back-to-back
global events.  Additionally, since there are a few other appsec events
taking place in  Oct (ISSA International, Hacker Halted, LASCON), it works
to move our event to Nov.

In another thread there was a suggestion to moving the USA event to
March/April. Discussion on this is welcome - but should be separate from
the NYC proposal as they need to get going for next year.

If you have serious concerns about these revised dates - please reply to
this email within the next 24 hours or attend the conference committee
meeting taking place tomorrow at 10PM UTC.


Regards,
Sarah Baso
