The German OWASP Chapter is hosting the global OWASP AppSec Research 2013 conference in Hamburg, Germany from August 20-23. Hamburg is the second biggest city in Germany, located in the north. To quote New York Times: No one tells you how pretty Hamburg is. We do.

The AppSec Research conference will be a premier gathering of Information Security leaders, also it is going to have a research part.

Executives from Fortune 500 firms along with technical thought leaders such as security architects and lead developers will be traveling to hear the cutting-edge ideas presented by Information Security’s top talent. OWASP events attract a worldwide audience interested in “what’s next”. The conference is expected to draw 400-500 technologists from Government, Financial Services, Media, Pharmaceuticals, Healthcare, Technology and many other verticals.

The conference will be held from August 20-23, 2013 at the Emporio Hamburg. It's centrally located in the heart of the city with a splendid view over Binnen-, Aussenalster and River Elbe.
