> YAPC::Europe is an inexpensive (40 pounds/person) Perl users and
> developers conference, with tutorials and technical talks. The
> conference is set in central London, down the road from Buckingham
> Palace, although we are reliably informed that Her Royal Highness will
> "probably not" attend.  The theme of the conference is "The Art of
> Perl", with a track on Saturday dedicated to the topic of creating old
> media and new with Perl, as well as looking at Perl as an art form.
> 
> All are welcome to this grassroots conference, to learn and share in
> the benefits of belonging to the Perl community.
> 
> Many well-known Perl developers and authors will be there:
> 
>  - Randal Schwartz: co-author of "Learning Perl" and 
> professional trainer.
>  - Graham Barr: author of the IO::* and Net::* modules, including
>    Net::LDAP.
>  - Tim Bunce: author of "Programming the Perl DBI" and the 
> DBI database
>    interface module.
>  - Andreas Koenig: one of the CPAN wizards.
>  - Nick Ing-Simmons: author of the Perl/Tk system.
> 
>   ... and YOU!
> 
> We are looking for tutors and speakers at YAPC::Europe.  Presentations
> will be:
> 
>   TUTORIALS: 3 hours (half-day) or 6 hours (full-day).
>   LONG TALKS: 40 minutes.
>   SHORT TALKS: 25 minutes.
>   LIGHTNING TALKS: 5 minutes.
> 
> If you wish to make a presentation, we will need to know:
> 
>   Type of talk (tutorial, long, short, or lightning)
>   Title
>   A 200-300 word abstract
>   One or two sentences on you and your affiliation
>   Whether you will have course notes or other materials if
>     you are proposing a tutorial
>   Any special presentation needs (e.g., you can only talk in
>     Hindi Sign Language with the aid of a UN-trained fruitbat)
> 
> Mail this to:
> 
>   euro-speakers at perltoys.com
> 
> in plain ASCII text (strictly no Microsoft Word or HTML) by August 11,
> 2000.  We would like that your materials be available online, but it
> is not required.
> 
> Topics are unlimited, but some suggestions include:
> 
>  * ART!  (Music, dance, poetry, mime, ...)
>  * Text processing (XML, regular expressions)
>  * Perl and the Web (CGI, HTML, mod_perl)
>  * Databases (DBI, Access, replication, administration)
>  * Graphics (Tk, GTk, controlling 3rd party software)
>  * Scientific computing (PDL, distributed computation)
>  * Practical Perl Programming
>  * Module guts and usage of any particular module
>  * Visionary or position papers on Perl
>  * Anything cool :)
> 
> Because YAPC::Europe is about producing the biggest communal bang for
> smallest attendee buck, there is no financial compensation for
> presenting.  Tutors and speakers will, however, be richly rewarded
> with the appreciation of their fellow Perl programmers which the
> canny will be able to convert into beer.
