The German OWASP Chapter will host the OWASP AppSec Europe Research 2013 global 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 Europe 2013 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.

On the research side OWASP's AppSecEU Research will give you an excellent chance to present your cutting edge research, including a paper for the proceedings.

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.
