    Sorry I missed this site until today!
    It would be excellent if you could list the many OWASP AppSec conferences that are held globally each year.
    The 2013 AppSecUSA event begins on 18-Nov-2013. Training is offered on the 18th and 19th, followed by two days of conference.
    OWASP maintains a page showing dates for all the global AppSec conferences, here: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_AppSec_Conference

    1. We have added all dates – let us know if you have any more information to add. Thanks for adding these events.
