I have had a meeting with Paulo Coimbra and Dinis Cruz where both the
objectives for the OWASP Training Day to be run on the 16th December and the
list of potential trainers to invite have been thoroughly discussed.


Taking into consideration the Summit 2011 to be held in February and the
various Tracks that have been defined to discuss what the Organization
perceives as being its strategic goals for 2011 we thought that the OWASP
Training day adjoined to the IBWAS'10 Conference would be a great
opportunity to have a few lateral working sessions (happening out of the
Training and Conference schedules) where some of these issues could be
debated and pondered. We also would like to use this occasion to share some
thoughts and ideas on the OWASP Training model, the Academies, the
relationship between OWASP and the governments/its organisms and OWASP and
the Industry, etc. In addition, our proposal envisages the reinforcement of
the Latin Iberian scope of this conference.


We have, therefore, agreed on inviting the following OWASP members: 


-        Martin Knobloch (already invited and presence confirmed)

-        Matteo Meucci 

-        Colin Watson 

-        Either Juan Carlos Calderon or Arturo Buanzo

-        Lucas Ferreira 

-        John Wilander 

-        Dinis Cruz 

-        Sebastien Deleersnyder


Furthermore, and following the OWASP Training principle that is important to
have local Chapter's members participating in these events as trainers - if
they are experienced with OWASP Projects and feel ready to present them - we
will also contact Miguel P. Correia and Miguel Almeida to see how they stand
on this.


Please let us know whether you have any objections - we intend to start
sending the invitations as soon as possible so that we can maximize the
chance of securing availability from these people.


With these extra leaders' participation, the conference will most likely
incur in financial loss. To overcome this and to allow the event to happen
as desired, it has been decided in the meeting mentioned above that the
OWASP central budget of $2,000 (EUR1,450) will be used exclusively to pay
for the travel and hotel expenses of these people and that if additional
resources are needed for this purpose OWASP central funds will be used. As
we have agreed that the trainers will also deliver on the conference, we
propose that expenses on meals and coffee breaks for the duration of the
event continue to be assumed by the IBWAS'10 budget. 


A new OWASP Training Day Financial's sheet will be built to manage the
budget allocated to the travelling expenses and accommodation of the people
included in the list above. As soon as this is done, I will share the link.
