The University Challenge is a competition among teams comprised of university students that will be held on 19 and 20 May 2015, during the training days of the conference. There is no admission fee for the University Challenge – participation in the conference is possible at the student rate if applicable. During the University Challenge teams will defend a vulnerable web application while solving Capture The Flag type challenges.
This year the OWASP University Challenge will be limited to 11 teams. Teams will consist of 4-8 students, with one team per university. All team openings are on a first come first serve basis. If multiple teams are received from the same university the second team will be put on a wait list.
Where is the University Challenge being held?
The University Challenge takes place in room E102 on the first floor in building E, of the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre from May 19-20, 2015.
