Welcome to SecAppDev 2019

SecAppDev 2019 is happening, and it is happening now! We have carefully crafted the course curriculum. 22 world class experts will teach 38 technical sessions and 3 one-day workshops. We are excited to take you on a week-long deep-dive into security, for the 15th year in a row!

This page contains everything you need when attending SecAppDev 2019. The links below take you to the relevant topics.

SecAppDev starts at 9 on each day. From 8:15 onwards, you are welcome to enjoy a coffee and a breakfast snack. We will be around getting things ready at around 7:30, so don't worry if you are so excited you want to come a bit earlier.

Evaluation and feedback

We take pride in delivering a high-quality SecAppDev course, year after year. Of course, this requires your input on how you experience SecAppDev.

We provide daily evaluation forms for you to complete. These forms allow you to give detailed feedback about each talk or workshop you attended. Additionally, you can give your general opinion on the day. They will appear here on the website each day, and will be sent out by mail.

If you have any other feedback you want to give, feel free to shoot us a quick email. Of course, you can also grab us in person with anything you have to say.

Social time

To further foster interactivity, we have scheduled about 15 hours to socialize throughout the week. These moments are well-suited to expand on content from the lectures or run your ideas by our faculty members.

Each day at SecAppDev, we start the day with morning coffee from 8:15 till 9:00. We have a coffee break at 10:30 till 11:00. At 12:30, we enjoy lunch as a group until 14:00. At 15:30, we again enjoy a coffee break untill 16:00.

In good tradition, the Belgian OWASP chapter is hosting a meeting during the week of SecAppDev. The meeting is scheduled on Wednesday evening, February 20th. SecAppDev's Jimmy Mesta and Martin Johns are this year's speakers. Attendance is free, but registration is required.

On Thursday evening, we enjoy our course dinner. To RSVP for the dinner, please sign your name on the attendance sheet before Monday evening.

Venue

In good tradition, SecAppDev takes place at the unique setting of the Faculty Club in Leuven.

It is easy to reach by car or public transport. There is a good description of how to get there at the venue's web site.

If you come by car, you can use the Faculty Club car park with the code we emailed you. If you forget this code on the first morning, just ring the bell and tell the front desk that you are attending SecAppDev.

Lectures take place in room Lemaire (Main building) and room Lemaître (West Wing). Workshops take place in room Bisschopskamer.

Course dinner

We hope to welcome you to the course dinner on Thursday evening. The dinner is the perfect opportunity to meet attendees and faculty in a different setting.

To celebrate our 15th anniversary, we have opted to host the course dinner at De Hoorn. Located in the ancient brewery of Stella Artois, this venue breathes the history of beer and Leuven. We start our celebration with a reception at 18:00, followed by a group dinner at 19:00.

De Hoorn is located on the other side of Leuven (Sluisstraat 79, 3000 Leuven). From the Faculty Club, De Hoorn is a short 25-minute walk. If you came by car, you can either leave your car at the Faculty Club, or use the public parking Vaartkom, close to the dinner venue (Engels Plein 32, 3000 Leuven).

To RSVP for the dinner, please sign your name on the attendance sheet before Monday evening.

Help

SecAppDev is an intimate and immersive experience. We strive to provide an environment where everyone feels welcome and safe. We encourage people to speak up about their opinions, and engage in thoughtful discussions.
