We’re pleased to announce we are hosting OpenSSF Day at Open Source Summit North America on Wednesday, May 10th and the call for proposals is now open. The full day program will feature keynotes from Open Source Security Foundation (OpenSSF) contributors and thought leaders. Sessions will include presentations, panels, and lightning talks on subjects such as security best practices, vulnerability discovery, securing critical projects, and the future of open source software (OSS) security. This is your chance to meet fellow open source community members and get involved in securing the open source supply chain.

Call for Proposals

We are also pleased to announce a Call for Proposals (CFP) for those who would like to speak at OpenSSF Day North America 2023. Please note that this is an in-person event and we ask that all speakers be prepared to present onsite. We are interested in 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.”

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 March 17.

We look forward to seeing you in Vancouver!
