OWASP AppSec Latin America 2011

Dear Fellow OWASP Leaders and Members,

In 2009 we had the first AppSec in South America, which was organised by the Brazilian Chapter in Brasilia, with more than 200 participants from Brazil, Argentina and Peru. For 2010, we are already organising another AppSec Brasil, which will be in Campinas (90 km from the City of São Paulo). We will soon begin releasing the call for presentations for 2010 and hope to have even more submissions from Latin America than we had last year. We have set the goal to make the transition from AppSec Brasil to AppSec Latin America, and need your help in doing so.

As you may know, OWASP's Global Conferences Committee will soon issue a Call for Conferences for year 2011. Before answering to this call, we are planning to release a Call for Conference Locations, so that candidate teams around Latin America can propose local venues to host a big AppSec Latin America Conference for 2011.

We believe this will be the first big effort to get together the Latin American OWASP Community in a big meeting, which would increase collaboration among our Chapter members and improve the presence of the community in OWASP.

We hope to have your support for this effort and are eager to hear your comments and suggestions. We also ask you to help us spread the word to other Chapters or groups we may have missed.

Best Regards,

Wagner Elias (wagner.elias@owasp.org)
