> Yet Another Perl Conference
> YAPC::Europe 19100
> Friday to Sunday, September 22-24, 2000
> at the
> Institute of Contemporary Arts
> London, UK
> *** Abstract Deadline : August 11, 2000 ***
> 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
> - 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)
> 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.
> Any questions about the conference should be directed to:
