With the theme ‘Setting the AppSec agenda for 2009', the OWASP Summit will be a worldwide gathering of OWASP leaders and key industry players to present and discuss the latest OWASP Tools, documentation projects, and web application security trends. By providing both technical and business tracks, the OWASP Summit is the perfect place to learn what resources OWASP has available for use today.

OWASP is a leader in application security and has granted 250,000 USD for web application security research. In addition to over 40 presentations from the OWASP Leaders and grant recipients, the OWASP Summit will host multiple Working Sessions designed to improve collaboration, achieve specific objectives and identify roadmaps for OWASP projects, chapters and the OWASP community itself.

To facilitate this event, OWASP is investing 150,000 USD which will be used to cover most travel and accommodation expenses for OWASP leaders, active contributors and select key industry leaders. With their confirmed presence, the OWASP Summit will provide a relaxed but professional environment to meet, discuss, influence and contribute to OWASP projects.

The OWASP Summit will also host a large and diverse selection of training courses, covering multiple OWASP specific and Web Application Security Topics.
