The OWASP Boston chapter would like to announce a call for papers and free workshops for the Boston Application Security Conference 2017 on October 14, 2017. This our seventh annual conference.
The OWASP BASC (Boston Application Security Conference) will be a free, one day, informal conference, aimed at increasing awareness and knowledge of application security in the greater Boston area. While many of the presentations will cover state-of-the-art application security concepts, the BASC is intended to appeal to a wide range of attendees. Application security professionals, professional software developers, software quality engineers, computer science students, and security software vendors will come to the BASC to learn, interact and hopefully enjoy themselves at the same time. We encourage local students, security professionals and academics to present papers as a way to gain exposure and experience in presenting at security conferences.
We expect over 200 attendees this year. Publicity includes the OWASP Boston wiki site (run by OWASP Foundation), OWASP Boston Meetup, OWASP Boston Linkedin group, OWASP Boston mailing list, Eventbrite and Twitter.
Last year, there were two tracks:
Track 1 - Basic/Current Application Security
Track 2 - Future / Advanced / New Research in Application security.
Each presentation will be 50 minutes.
We attract both people who are new to application security as well as people who are experienced in application security.
We encourage first time presenters: students, researchers, working application security folks etc. to submit presentations.
