OWASP EU 2018 : OWASP AppSec Europe 2018
Call For Papers
The OWASP AppSec conference in Europe is an established and premier venue for web applications leaders, software engineers, researchers and visionaries from all over the world. OWASP AppSec Europe gathers the application security community for a 5-days event to share and discuss novel ideas, initiatives and advancements. The 2018 conference will take place in Tel-Aviv from June 17th to 21st 2018, with papers/talks presented on 20th and 21st June.
This year the special theme of OWASP AppSec Europe is: Usable Security. We ask for you to think about how security is affected by the human aspects of users, developers and administrators? How do we design, deploy and manage a security system so that it will be used consistently and properly? What lessons can we learn from past success (or not-exactly-success...) stories in which the human factor played a major role?
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Novel web vulnerabilities and countermeasures
* New technologies, paradigms, tools
* OWASP tools or projects in practice
* Secure development: frameworks, best practices, secure coding, methods, processes, SDLC
* Browser security
* Mobile security and security for the mobile web
* Cloud security
* Security of frameworks
* Large-scale security assessments of web applications and services
* Privacy risks in the web and the cloud
* Management topics in Application Security: Business Risks, Awareness Programs, Project Management, Managing SDLC
To ensure the best talks available are presented at AppSec Europe blind reading is being incorporated as part of their process. This means that names and job titles will be removed when the paper abstract is being reviewed. All speakers will be given access to speaker mentorship.
For our event, we are looking for “the next”, cutting edge research in the context of web applications, secure development, security management and privacy. Our goal is to give both academic researchers and industry practitioners the possibility to share their latest findings with the rest of the community, including coverage via our media channels. It won’t be a knockout criteria if your talk has been presented before but we would appreciate if you would let us know.
Your submission is subject to approval by a team of the program committee, chaired by Irene Abezgauz.
The program committee will review your submission based on a descriptive abstract of your intended presentation. Feel free to attach a preliminary version of your presentation if available, or any other supporting materials. Keep in mind: the better your description is, the better our review will be. Please review your proposal thoroughly as accepted abstract and bio submitted will be published 1:1 on our site. If your presentation is accepted for inclusion in the conference program, you are free to submit a white paper describing your work, which will be added to the website.
Please submit your proposal to EasyChair:
