To make a submission you must fill out the form available at 
http://ibwas09.netmust.eu/files/ibwas10/OWASP_IBWAS_2010_CFT.rtf.zip and submit by email to secretariat () ibwas com 

There may be 1 or half a day courses. The proposals must respect the restrictions of the OWASP Speaker Agreement. The 
conference will reward trainers with at least 30% of the total revenue of their courses, based on a minimum attendance. 
Courses that attract more students may be granted higher percentages. No other compensation (such as tickets or 
lodging) will be provided. If you require a different arrangement, please contact the conference chair at the email 
address below.

Instructors and authors will be paid based on the number of students in their training sessions. If the training 
gathers only the minimum number of students, the compensation will be 30% of the revenue. For each group of 10 extra 
students enrolled, the compensation will be increased by 5% of the revenue, up to a maximum of 45% of the training 
revenue. For example, a 1-day training with 10 to 19 students will generate a compensation of 30% of the revenue. For 
classes of 20 to 29 students, the compensation raises to 35% percent of the revenue.

In exceptional cases, different compensation schemes may be accepted. Please contact the conference organization team
