Opportunities to Present at OWASP AppSec Europe


AppSec Europe seeks to bring together developers and security professionals at all points in their careers to be the thriving global community that drives visibility and evolution in the safety and security of the world’s software.  We understand that robust security requires diversity of thought and practitioners.  We also know that a conference that meets the needs of our community must provide a buffet of learning and teaching experiences.  We are currently seeking submissions for the following in conference events:



  • Arsenal: Do you have an opensource tool to share with the world?  The AppSec Arsenal is the place to stand out from the crowd and demo your open source tool to potential users and collaborators. Successful applicants will have grown beyond proof of concept and represent a range of tools from the well known, to the newly established; the point-solution to the broad.  Watch for submission updates.

  • Lightning Training:  Important training comes in all sizes.  Our Lightning training sessions are the perfect 1-2 hour training on the go.  Your Lightning training session will be free to the public and can be in lecture or hands on mode. This a great place teach a concept swiftly, or allow new trainers to get experience. Apply for your Lightning training now!

  • Lightning Talks: Simplicity is beautiful and provocative ideas don't necessarily take an hour to express. Lighting Talks are the place to share everything from exciting vulnerabilities, to humorous lessons learned, to new ways of securing an application in 10-15 minuets.  Share your idea on the OWASP stage!

  • Activities: Conferences aren't all talk, sometimes you just need to DO! So whether it’s a Capture the Flag event, an Escape room, lock picking demonstrations or something else we want to facilitate your Activity. Preference given to those activities with a with a more security focused theme.  You can submit your Activity for May 11/12 here.
