Dear all,


Following the email sent in October regarding the OWASP Academies and the
work OWASP is developing to implement and operationalize this concept,
multiple feedback and contributions for the discussion have been received.


We thought that one way to turn the feedback and interest received into
something positive and constructive would be to sit the people involved at a
table and discuss experiences, views and ideas for the OWASP Academies'
operational model. Knowing, for example, how the already established
connections with Universities were started and how they are working, what
would seem to these partners the most reasonable "next step" in terms of
formalization or knowing what, from the Universities' point of view, would
be an interesting model of relationship, could be of great use for our own
definition and consolidation of the OWASP Academies concept.


In this context, a meeting will be held on the 5th, 6th and 7th of January,
in Lisbon, with a mixed format that aims to fulfil several objectives. 

- We will have two days (5th and 6th January) of working sessions focused on
the OWASP Academies where the operational model will be discussed with the
intent to prepare a draft that can be presented and debated in the

- On the third day (7th January), and given that a number of experienced
OWASP members will be in Lisbon, we will organize an OWASP Training Day that
will help us keeping the media attention on our Organization in the period
that precedes the Summit, reinforce the activity of the Local Chapter and
maximize the resources available.


The working sessions and Training Day will take place at ISCTE, Lisbon
University Institute, in Lisbon.


Unfortunately, due to budgetary constraints, it will not be possible for us
to invite all who have contributed for the discussion and pay for their
traveling and accommodation. We have therefore devised a criteria of
selection for paid invitations that takes into account both the level of
engagement in the discussion and the amount of work already done within the
Academic community.


Having said that, if you find sponsorship to fund your trip and stay in
Lisbon, you will be very welcome to join us - just drop me a line to let me
know you are coming! 


Best regards,



Sandra Paiva
