Hello, as you probably have heard by now, we are going to organize a
conference in Portugal 100% dedicated to OWASP.

The idea is to get us (OWASP participants) together in the same place in
order to:

   1) present your (project & chapter leader) great work and 
   2) answer the questions: 'what is happening at OWASP?' ,  'How can OWASP
help?' and 'What should OWASP focus in 2009?'

The idea was originated from the amazing group that embarked on the current
OWASP Summer of Code 2008 initiative! Not only we have a vibrant number of
participants (31), we also have a excellent number of reviewers (~70). See

Me (Dinis Cruz) and Paulo Coimbra are the crazy ones that will try to make
all of this happen. We have started to put some ideas here:
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_EU_Summit_2008 , but please note that
these are still early days, and there is still quite a lot to decide. If you
are able to help, or know somebody who is (we are going to have a couple
extra invitations for helpers), please let us know asap with the area(s) you
would like to be involved in .

VERY IMPORTANT: In order to know who (and how many) will go, we need you to
do ASAP add YOUR NAME to the list of participants . As always we will do
this via the wiki, so go ahead and deface this page:
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_EU_Summit_2008#Participants . 

The idea is to cover as much of your costs as possible. 

In principle - for everybody that meet the invitation criteria (for example,
the current SOC participants & Reviewers  WILL NEED to successfully complete
your objectives :)  )  - we will be aim to  cover 100 % of the accommodation
expenses and a % of the transportation. And before you ask, no, the
invitation criteria has not been finalized yet :)

The final number will depend of a lot of factors, but the current plan is to
provide financial support to: all Seasons of Code participants and
reviewers, significant & active Projects and Chapters leaders, significant
past OWASP contributores and member of the summit organizing team (see

Although we start with a good budget (150,000 USD) to cover expenses (i.e.
venue, accommodation, transport & food), it will not be enough to cover the
current projected number of OWASP participants (200 people). So if you can
get your company to pay for some or all expenses (for example the flight),
please do so (that will allow us to support somebody else that cannot get
their expenses covered and doesn't match the invitation critia (which I note
again, is still yet to be finalized))

We need to start sorting out the travel logistics as soon as possible, so if
you can make those dates (and even if you are from a not very active project
or chapter) please put ASAP your name in that list .
Fell free to contact Paulo (or me) if you have specific questions about this
OWASP Summit,

Looking forward to see you all there :)
