Call for Papers

Call for Papers is closed. Thank you for your interest.


Application Security Leaders, Software Engineers, and Researchers from all over the world gather at Global AppSec Conferences to drive visibility and evolution in the safety and security of the world’s software - as well as to network, collaborate, and share the newest innovations in the field.


The Global AppSec Programme Team is formally issuing a call for papers, opening 27 January 2020.

This year’s tracks follow the traditional OWASP Builder, Breaker, & Defender principles - with an additional category - Leadership.

Speakers should focus on the following guidance for each of the tracks:

BUILDER - show us how to build more secured apps

BREAKER - show us how not to build more secured apps

DEFENDER - show us world-class application defense, including the tools and techniques enabling detection and response to attacks

LEADERSHIP - show us how to shape and inspire both change and understanding in the teams and organizations around us
