2012 BASC: Home Agenda Presentations Speakers

Call for Papers

The OWASP Boston chapter would like to announce a call for papers for the 2012 Boston Application Security Conference (BASC) on Saturday, October 13th at Microsoft New England Research and Development Center (NERD) in Cambridge MA.

This will be a free, one day informal conference, aimed at increasing awareness and knowledge of web and mobile application security in the greater Boston area. You can find more information about the BASC at

The BASC 2012 will have two parallel tracks. Track 1 will focus on the basics of application security and the practical uses of application security tools and techniques. Track 2 will focus on more advanced application security topics including research on application security.

The following are some topics we have received requests for: OWASP top 10, mobile browser app security, how to use the Metasploit toolkit, OWASP ESAPI, in depth SQL Injection and Cross Site Scripting.

Each presentation will be 50 minutes which should include any time for Q&A.

One 50 minute session will be devoted to 3 lightning talks of 15 minutes each.

We hope to attract people who are new to application security as well as thought leaders who are experienced in application security. We expect the attendees to include application security professionals, professional software developers, software quality engineers, computer science students, security software vendors and others.


If you would like to present at the BASC, please email an abstract of your presentation to the program committee at [email protected] For further information, see the OWASP Speaker Agreement.
