Hi IBWAS ’09 team,


I’ve created the wiki page for the IBWAS team that Dinis has requested http://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_AppSec_Iberia_2009_Internal_Affairs and have added a tab (internals) to link it from the Carlos’s newly created conference wiki page http://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_AppSec_Iberia_2009.


I’ve also made a couple of edits in the Portuguese version of our PR and, talking of which, as we still don’t have any Castilian version, I ask if anyone can volunteer to assume the task. 


As you can see, for our convenience, a mailing list containing all the people involved with this event has been created.




Paulo Coimbra,

 <https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Main_Page> OWASP Project Manager

Paulo can you create a

Wiki page for the 'conference team' (i.e. the people on the mailing list) and place all relevant links in there (for exemple Lorna's PR document)

All good suggestions. Paulo Querido is not listed on the www.ibwas.com site as a speaker, so I'll need more information regarding him. I'll post the doc and share with all who are cc'd. Remember though this is a press-release at least in the US, they are brief 1 to 1-1/2 pages . 
Here is the link:

Hi just a couple comments

*	The list of speakers (& who they are what they are presenting) is hard to read when all condensed in one paragraph. Can we use bullet points? (ignore if that exists on the original document and it was a prob with Google's conversion)
*	we should include reference to the conference's external website (http://www.ibwas.com) and to the respective WIKI page on the www.owasp.org website (Carlos, we really need that OWASP AppSec Iberia 2009 as soon as possible)
*	We should list 'Paulo Querido' who is a speaker from Portugal with quite a lot of influence there 
*	Paulo, can you use the fact that we want to release this Press Release to apply some more pressure on 'Luis Magalhaes' in order to get him to decide if he is going to attend the conference or not.
*	We should include a mention about the past successful conferences has delivered in 2009, namely the fact that we were did a co-event with the Brazilian government and had a great US conference
*	Shouldn't we list the current sponsors? (apart from the fact that the sponsors will like it, it will give the conference more credibility)
*	Shouldn't we mention that a number of Key OWASP project and chapter leaders (and 1 member of the OWASP board) is going to be attending the conference?

Just had an idea, which is good for this press release, but could be something very interesting. Have we (OWASP) officially launched the books that we have translated into Spanish and Portuguese?  If not, why don't we do that at this conference? The books look great, and that would have quite a nice media impact: "OWASP launches X Portuguese and Spanish books on Application Security which are available for download or purchase at cost"

On the collaboration front, can we start using Google docs (i.e. just sent around the link and not the document)?

I've attached a press release for IBWAS09. Please look over and confirm that I have included every thing which is required.  It would also be good to have a Spanish and Portuguese version as well. 

I apologize if these points have already been discussed:

*	Has the conference committee reached out to other security organizations in the area to see if they would send out the conference information out to their membership?  ISACA, ISSA etc.
*	Who are the local Security bloggers and info sites for the area? 
*	Local media, University newspapers and technology groups?
*	Have you reached out to the professors who teach info security with an invitation?

(note I added Lorna Alamri to this thread since she is the star behind the recent OWASP newsletter and is interested in helping on all PR related issues (Paulo can you also forward her the dial-in details for the call, just in case she can make it))

(I also CCed the Conferences committee to make sure that they are in the loop)


Topics to cover in today's call at 7pm (in 45m) :

*	Conference budget : http://spreadsheets.google.com/a/owasp.org/ccc?key=0AnvrVYEosFeEdHdnZ25WNTdqNHkxMTdtMlRiZ2VIWWc <http://spreadsheets.google.com/a/owasp.org/ccc?key=0AnvrVYEosFeEdHdnZ25WNTdqNHkxMTdtMlRiZ2VIWWc&hl=en&invite=CJH2sfsD> &hl=en&invite=CJH2sfsD

*	See comments I just made on that spreadsheet

*	Official Invitations to Portuguese, Spanish, Brazilian and UK governments

*	See comments I made on my previous email regarding how we should position these emails

*	Event Agenda - Published yesterday(see http://www.ibwas.com and http://www.ibwas.com/site/programme.html)

*	Panel topic on last day to be 'Government related'
*	Create event pages on the OWASP website. At the moment (as far as I can see) there is not an OWASP page for this conference. I don't have a particular problem with having an external website like this, but if we want to attract the OWASP crowd (see below) then we need an event page that looks like one of the ones below:

*	http://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Ireland_AppSec_2009_Conference (flat one-page layout)
*	http://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_AppSec_DC_2009  (multi-tab layout)

*	Strategy for event promotion 

*	Press Release
*	Briefing document for Press (i.e. press pack)
*	Blog entries and articles in online & offline newspapers
*	European OWASP local chapter mailing lists
*	Direct contact to OWASP European members (individual, corporate and education) 
*	Direct contact to EU universities
*	Follow up from contacts obtained on last year Summit event in Portugal
*	other ideas ...

*	OWASP invitation of Brazilian AppSec conference organizers

*	Important opportunity to build bridges between the 3 OWASP communities (PT,SP & BR)
*	Are we able to get external to OWASP sponsors for their travel costs?
*	if OWASP (central) will be required to cover some expenses, what would be the final cost?

Feel free to add more topics to cover tonight (or propose changes to the above topic)


See you later
