Hello All:

Is your Chapter or Region interested in hosting our 2016 OWASP AppSec
Conference
for Europe, USA, LATAM or AsiaPac?

OWASP is actively seeking proposals and we encourage any Chapter or
Regional group interested in hosting a​n *OWASP**​ ​**Global **Conference* to
submit a proposal.  Additionally, we are looking at other formats including
static locations and regional tours to help maximize spreading the word
about OWASP.



The dates of each OWASP Global AppSec conference vary somewhat each year
but ideally the conference is held:

Europe ​- Q2​ 2016

North America​ - Q3​ 2016

LATAM & AsiaPac, regional tours covering multiple countries in Q2 & Q4 have
proven successful.


Hosting a conference requires commitment, responsibility and a lot of time,
energy and effort to properly plan and implement a conference. For more
information see the How to Host a Conference page.

We really appreciate every proposal we receive, however not every proposal
will be approved. The selection process will be made by the OWASP
operations team with input from previous AppSec organizing teams.    *The
deadline for applications is March 20th.*

assistance with your application, please do not hesitate to contact me.  We
