Call for Proposals

We are also pleased to announce a Call for Proposals (CFP) from those who would like to speak at OpenSSF Day Europe. Please note that this is an in-person event and we ask that all speakers be prepared to present onsite. We are interested in receiving presentations that cover topics that advance the OpenSSF commitment to “collaboration and working both upstream and with existing communities to advance open source security for all.” We welcome topics encompassing security best practices, vulnerability discovery, securing critical projects, developing tooling for OSS security, and the future of OSS security. Suggested topics include:

  • Current progress & results from the OpenSSF, including its working groups, projects, and special interest groups (SIGs).
  • Reports from organizations and open source software projects on their experience being involved in OpenSSF and using OpenSSF results, focusing on benefits and lessons learned.
  • Presentations explaining interrelationships between OpenSSF and others interested in open source software security (including software supply chain defensive efforts).

If you would like to present, please send a submission through the CFP. Proposal submissions are due July 7, 2023.

We look forward to seeing you in Bilbao!
