We are especially interested in “the next”, cutting edge research in the context of web applications, secure development, security management and privacy. Our goal is to give both academic researchers and industry practitioners the possibility to share their latest findings with the rest of the community, including coverage via our media channels.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Novel web vulnerabilities and countermeasures
  • New technologies, paradigms, tools
  • OWASP tools or projects in practice
  • Secure development: frameworks, best practices, secure coding, methods, processes, SDLC
  • Browser security
  • Mobile security and security for the mobile web
  • Cloud security
  • REST/SOAP security
  • Security of frameworks
  • Effects of UX on security
  • Large-scale security assessments of web applications and services
  • Privacy risks in the web and the cloud
  • Management topics in Application Security: Business Risks, Awareness Programs, Project Management, Managing SDLC

To ensure that the best training courses are available, OWASP reads all submissions blind.

You are welcome to apply with a training course you have given before but you must note where and when the training occurred.


The program committee will review your submission based on a descriptive abstract of your intended training. Feel free to attach a preliminary version of your training if available, or any other supporting materials. Keep in mind: the better your description is, the more accurate our review will be. Please review your proposal thoroughly as accepted abstracts and bios will be published on our site as submitted. If your training is accepted for inclusion in the conference program, you are free to submit a white paper describing your work, which will be added to the website.
