Matthew Chalmers submitted the following news.

"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. Join us in Portugal in just a few short weeks! This venue hosts a diverse selection of training courses along with technical AND business tracks, making it THE place to learn about web and application security and the resources OWASP has available for use today.

OWASP is a not-for-profit organization with the purpose of supporting the web and application security community around the world, and has granted $250,000 USD for security research. In addition to over 40 presentations from 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, Local Chapters, and the OWASP community itself.

The remarkable impact of OWASP is made possible only by the collaboration of many dedicated people and organisations worldwide. In that spirit of cooperation, OWASP invites all its members and interested individuals and companies to attend this thrilling event. Please join us in Portugal 3-7 November and help to set the Web Application Security Agenda for 2009!"

One of the things we'll be talking about during the summit is whether OWASP should have some sort of Awards to highlight and thank the "dedicated people and organisations worldwide" mentioned.

If you would like to participate in this discussion, perhaps after attending some of the training on offer, come along to the Awards working session:
