Call for Papers
The Call for Papers is over
Thanks for submitting such a large number of interesting talk proposals. The orgas will now lock themselves up in a room for the next two weeks and try to decide which talks to accept (and then continue with the horrors of seting up a schedule...)
Speakers will be notifyed at the latest on Friday, 15th June 2007. Around that time you will also be able to see the list of all accepted talks here on our website.
Proposal Submission Deadline: Sunday, 27th May 2007
The theme for this year's conference is "Social Perl", which we hope will inspire submissions for this and related topics. If Perl has helped you or your company to get people together, or if you can report how Perl is "social" to other programming languages, or how Perl may profit from inspirations from other languages, we'd like to hear about it. Although this is our main topic for the conference, it will not be the only one, and as such we will also be accepting talks on just about any theme.
If you have an idea for a talk you'd like to give, or a topic you'd like to hear a talk on, you may like to post a synopsis on our conference wiki to see what others think. Proposed talks with a favourable response on the wiki have a better chance of getting accepted!
How to submit proposals
Please submit your proposals at the conference web site no later than 23:59 GMT on Sunday, 27th May 2007.
Each submission should be for one talk only, and include:
An outline of the main points can also be helpful, and is required for tutorial proposals.
All accepted speakers, except lightning talk only speakers, will have their registration fee waived.
Type of talks
We will be offering a number of time-slots for talks:
The preferred format is a 20 minute talk. It is expected that the majority of talks will be of this length.
Long talks are reserved for experienced speakers covering large topics. If you have an in-depth topic you would like to present in some detail, perhaps with considerable discussion, a double-slot may be available. However you should also consider splitting it into two standard talks (perhaps an introduction and a more advanced talk).
Tutorials are available for beginner and introductory style presentations.
The three-hour slots are intended for a group of people who want to discuss a topic in depth, or even hack on some code. This events will take place in a fully equipped computer lab.
Conference organisers reserve the right to change the length assigned to a talk, if deemed appropriate.
