OWASP on the Move
This new program allows local chapter or application security conferences to have OWASP presenters on site.
This page will allow 3 parties to find each other:
- OWASP speakers to entertain OWASP presentations and that want to see the world
- Local chapters or application security events that want to attract an OWASP speaker
- OWASP sponsors that want to support spreading the OWASP message
Owasp on the Move (OotM) is now also a project. Visit the project page to see what the future holds for OotM.
The way it works is very easy.
- The event organizer sends the OotM request (event, who to cover, etc...) to Kate
- If within the rules (see below) it will be rapidly approved by Kate
- The event organizer updates the OotM section below to track the application
- After the event is performed, the person that made the travel/lodging expenses e-mail a scan of the receipts to Kate
- Kate re-imburses and informs the event organizer
- The event organizer updates the OotM section below
OWASP On the Move Rules:
The following rules apply for the OotM project:
- The normal maximum amount per speaker is 500 USD
- Only in special circumstances the maximum amount per speaker can be raised to a maximum of $1000 USD
- There is a proposed limit of 2,000 USD on the amount of $ provided to any individual per year (*see 'further funding' below)
- There is a proposed limit of 1,000 USD on the amount of $ provided to any event per year(*see 'further funding' below)
- There is a proposed limit of 2,000 USD on the amount of $ provided to any chapter per year(*see 'further funding' below)
- The program will run for 1 year or 30,000 USD (whichever comes first) and then will be reviewed for the value and ROI for OWASP and its community;
So, a chapter can use the sponsorship 4 times a year, with the max of 2 speakers sponsored by OotM for one single event.
- Further funding: for active chapters or speakers who have reach the proposed financial limits, further funding is possible but will depend on available budget, since priority would be given to chapters below these thresholds
Add your demand here:
- Helsinki is looking for OWASP speakers on the SDLC topic for a mini-conference. Expected timing is sometime in May . Sponsors and potential speakers are requested to contact Antti.
- Edmonton is looking for an OWASP speaker on any topic to coincide with the CIPS Edmonton ICE Conference. The talk would be during November 5 - 7, 2007. Looking for a quick reply if possible as we are trying to finalize the conference program very shortly.
