The OWASP AppSec conference series is dedicated to bringing together industry, government, and security researchers and practioners to discuss the state of the art in application security. This series was launched in the U.S. in the Fall of 2004 and in Europe in the Spring of 2005 and this has rapidly grown into a world wide phenomenon which now includes the U.S., Europe, Asia, Australia, and Israel. All of the presentations from our previous conferences can be downloaded from the agenda pages for each conference.

If you'd like to host a conference, we're always looking for great locations and enthusiastic local organizers. Please contact Kate Hartmann, OWASP Operations Director. If you'd like to sponsor a conference, more information is available here.
