Black Hat is well-known as the conference to attend for cutting edge  
information security research. What's exciting to me about this years  
USA conference (July 29-August 3, 2006) is the absolute stunning  
amount of web application security talks being presented (list  
below). Most conferences have maybe 1 or 2 talks on the subject.  
Clearly the awareness and importance of webappsec has grown  
tremendously.

Also as we've done the last 2 years at BH, WASC will be organizing an  
informal get together. More details to come.
