AppSec USA 2011 CFP Reminder, CTF Pre-Conference Challenge #2

Hello OWASP Community!

This is an update about the OWASP AppSec USA 2011 software security conference in Minneapolis this September I just sent to several other mailing lists. Maybe on your way to AppSec EU you can work on a paper and get it submitted! I would be most thankful if you would share the CFP link, as well as the CTF pre-con challenge #2 (free ticket opportunity) and Training links with your friends and local chapters.


Have something important to say about software security? The OWASP AppSec USA 2011 Call for Papers is still open. We're looking for hardcore talks in cloud security, mobile security, new attacks & defenses, and straight up software development platforms. Get your submission in before time runs out. And have your developer friends submit a talk!

The AppSec USA 2011 talks will be delivered September 22-23, 2011 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In addition to the talks, we'll have excellent keynotes like Moxie Marlinspike.

Leaders: The CFP system for the OWASP-specific track is Contact Mark Bristow or Jason Li for more information.


Last month ChrisKarel won pre-conference challenge #1 for a pass to the OWASP AppSec USA 2011 talks. Congratulations, ChrisKarel!

For June, we're back with another chance for you to score a free conference pass and get a feel for the AppSec USA 2011 CTF challenges coming this September. Good luck.
