The fall 2009 summit has been moved so as to avoid conflict with the AppSec
US conference in DC scheduled for November.  The current tentative date for
the Summit is now January.  Details to follow soon!

It sounds like the Conferences Committee has decided to postpone the 
Fall 2009 summit until Spring 2010 - is that correct?  Is the event then 
to occur every 18 months instead of annually?

Just curious.  If this has already been publicly disseminated, I apologize.
