Hello, Just wondering - If this summit event is one month before AppSecEU -
Couldn't they co-locate?

Best wishes,
Bev

>> *Application Security. This is not a conference with uni-directional
>> presentations, this is a working summit with working sessions on areas
>> like: Secure Coding, Security Testing/TDD, DevOps, Threat Modeling, Mobile
>> Security, IoT, Risk & Governance, Privacy & CTO/CISO requirements, Secure
>> Design, Bug-bounties, Browser Security, **AI for Attack & Defence, **DDoS,
>> Cyber Warfare, AppSec Standards; and of course, working sessions on popular
>> OWASP projects (lead by its leaders) such as: Zap, **Top 10, **Dependency
>> Checker, OwaspSAMM, OWASP Guides (Testing, ASVS, Core Review), AppSensor
>> and dozens more.*
>>
>>
>> *Using the same model as the past two OWASP Summits in Portugal, this 5
>> day event will be a 16h day high energy experience, where the attendees are
>> expected to work and collaborate really hard. Every working session will be
>> thoroughly prepared and focused on actionable outcomes.*
>>
>> *If you care about Application Security and want to collaborate with **the
>> key players in this industry, **this is the event to be.*
>>
>> *The Summit will occur in England, April 2017, with an entry ticket **of
>> $2000** (covering travel + hotel + accommodation + event fee).* OWASP is
>> funding a large number of its leaders and other deserving individuals to
>> attend, so if you feel you can't afford this fee, or your company is not in
>> a position to sponsor you, please contact the event organisers.
>>
>>
>>
>> In terms of budget we *ask for a seed fund of 150K USD* (first draft
>> budget attached in the OCMS request).
>>
>> Our objective is to lower the financial impact (and possibly get this to
>> 0 or even make it a budget positive event) through sponsoring (externally
>> and from projects/chapters) and have participant's organisations cover the
>> costs.
>> Nevertheless, we ask this seed fund to get the ball rolling and focus on
>> content, speakers, workshops and tracks. In parallel we will involve Laura,
>> the staff and our community to co-organize this as a professional event and
>> submit a detailed budget in the following cycles.
>>
>> Our main question is:
>> 1) your approval to reserve this summit seed fund (either by email or on
>> your next board meeting 9-November).
>> + your support to make this a great summit!
>>
>> Available for any questions/remarks thru email or other means.
>>
>> Thank you
