The OWASP Track initiative, jointly led by the Global Conferences Committee and the Global Projects Committee, is a new effort to help OWASP promote our projects and activities at our own major conferences. The goal of this track is to highlight and promote OWASP and offer our leaders a chance to showcase their activities. As such, we will be using a different type of CFP from those typically issued. Submissions should highlight a particular OWASP project or activity that is important to the community at large. The joint GCC/GPC program committee will be judging these submissions on a variety of factors, including project/activity maturity, strategic value to OWASP, relevance to the event audience, and past presentation performance. We intend to highlight brand new projects and activities along with established ones, so new project leaders should not be discouraged from applying! Keep in mind though that we are looking for polished presentations so it will help your submission if you can demonstrate that your project/activity has made recent strides in improving quality. Presenters that perform well in their OWASP Track talk will be invited to join the OWASP Speakers Group.
In addition to our normal criteria selections for the ASIAPAC event will heavily favor submitters from the ASIAPAC region. The event will be held Friday 13th and Saturday 14th of April 2012 in Sydney Australia.
