Building on the success of AppSec DC 2010 and 2009, OWASP is pleased to
announce the next OWASP AppSec DC conference.  The theme for this year's
conference is "OWASP - Not just webapps anymore" to reflect the new and
revised scope of OWASP to include all application security issues instead of
focusing just on web application security.

Owing to feedback from the past two years, and in alignment with the overall
OWASP Conference mission, the AppSec DC Planners have decided to move the
conference to April of 2012. This is in response to requests from a variety
of our sponsors and vendors, and de-conflicts overlap in the OWASP
conference schedule for North America.  OWASP AppSec DC 2012 will be held at
the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on April 2nd through April 5th.
Plenary sessions will be on April 4th and 5th preceded by Application
Security Training on April 2nd and 3rd.

In accordance with the broader OWASP mission stemming from the 2011 OWASP
Global Summit, AppSec DC is working to reflect the move of OWASP towards
embracing all facets of Application Security, and not restricting it's
content to strictly to the realm of web applications. Therefore we invite
all practitioners of application security and those who work with or
interact with all facets of application security to submit papers and
participate in the conference.

The AppSec DC 2012 Content Committee is seeking presentations in the
following subject areas:

 - OWASP Projects
 - Research in Application Security Defense (Defense & Countermeasures)
 - Research in Application Security Offense (Vulnerabilities & Exploits)
 - Web Application Security
 - Critical Infrastructure Security
 - Mobile Security
 - Government Initiatives & Government Case Studies
 - Effective Case studies in Policy, Governance, Architecture or Life Cycle
 - and other application security topics

Submit papers to http://cfp.appsecdc.org.  Submission deadline is January
15th 2011.  Inquires can be made to cfp at appsecdc.org.
Additional information can be found in the FAQ.  You will have to sign up
for an EasyChair account at https://www.easychair.org/account/signup.cgi.
