Call for Presentations (Industry)

The German Chapter of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is proud to organize this years' OWASP AppSec Research EU conference.

OWASP AppSec conferences are the premier gathering for Software Security leaders and researchers. It brings together the application security community to share cutting-edge ideas, initiatives and technological advancements.


OWASP AppSec conferences are true security conferences, with expected talks and presentations all around (web) application security. Non-technical talks (see below) are welcome too. Please refrain from submitting marketing talks or having sales pitches in your talk.

We are interested in all topics related to Web Application Security and OWASP, in particular:

  • Secure development: frameworks, best practices, secure coding, methods, processes, SDLC
  • Vulnerability analysis: code review, pentest, static analysis
  • Threat modelling
  • Mobile security
  • Cloud security
  • Browser security
  • HTML5 security
  • OWASP tools or projects in practice
  • New technologies, paradigms, tools
  • Privacy in web apps, Web services (REST, XML) and data storage
  • Operations and software security
  • Management topics in Application Security: Business Risks, Outsourcing/Offshoring, Awareness Programs, Project Management, Managing SDLC


By your submission you agree to the OWASP Speaker Agreement. It requires that you use an OWASP presentation template. You are welcome to include your company logo to the first and last slide. All presentation slides will be published on the conference website. Please make sure that any pictures and other materials in your slides doesn't violate any copyrights. You are solely liable for copyright violations. You may choose any CC licence for your slides, including CC0. OWASP does suggest open licenses.

Participants and speakers are all warmly invited to attend the conference dinner on Thursday. Subject to the budget situation there's an extra evening program for all accepted speakers.

Unfortunately we can't cover travel expenses or costs for accomodations.
