OWASP is currently soliciting training proposals for the OWASP AppSec Brazil 2010 Conference which will take place at Fundação CPqD in Campinas, SP, Brazil, on November 16 through November 19, 2010. There will be training courses on November 16 and 17 followed by plenary sessions on the 18 and 19 with one single track per day.

We are seeking training proposals on the following topics (in no particular order):
- Application Threat Modeling
- Business Risks with Application Security
- Hands-on Source Code Review
- Metrics for Application Security
- OWASP Tools and Projects
- Privacy Concerns with Applications and Data Storage
- Secure Coding Practices (J2EE/.NET)
- Starting and Managing Secure Development Lifecycle Programs
- Technology specific presentations on security such as AJAX, XML, etc
- Web Application Security countermeasures
- Web Application Security Testing
- Web Services, XML- and Application Security
- Anything else relating to OWASP and Application Security

Proposals on topics not listed above but related to the conference (i.e. which are related to Application Security) may also be accepted.

To make a submission you must fill out the form available at and submit by email to

There may be 1 or 2-day courses. The proposals must respect the restrictions of the OWASP Speaker Agreement. The conference will reward trainers with at least 30% of the total revenue of their courses, based on a minimum attendance. Courses that attract more students may be granted higher percentages. No other compensation (such as tickets or lodging) will be provided. If you require a different arrangement, please contact the conference chair at the email address below.

Instructors and authors will be paid based on the number of students in their training sessions. If the training gathers only the minimum number of students, the compensation will be 30% of the revenue. For each group of 10 extra students enrolled, the compensation will be increased by 5% of the revenue, up to a maximum of 45% of the training revenue. For example, a 1-day training with 10 to 19 students will generate a compensation of 30% of the revenue. For classes of 20 to 29
students, the compensation raises to 35% percent of the revenue.

In exceptional cases, different compensation schemes may be accepted. Please contact the conference organization team by email ( for details.
