Please submit your abstracts to <>. See Lightning Talk submission instructions below. For all other talks, authors are requested to limit their abstracts to 300 words.

Speakers (except for lightning talks) have their registration fee waived.

Please consider paying the registration anyway, even if you do a talk. We will need all the available funds to organise this conference. Speakers should take care of their travel, visas and lodging like regular attendants. We are a grass-root conference!

This year we will accept various types of presentation:
  • 5 minutes

    Lightning talks are brief (5-minute) talks that focus on a single example, idea, project, or technique.

    Lightning talks do not attempt to cover all aspects of their subject matter, but rather to present one facet of the idea clearly and succinctly.

    To submit a proposal for a lightning talk, please send your proposed title and an abstract of up to four sentences to:

    Submissions are due by June 1 midnight (Paris Time). Submitters will be notified by end-of-day June 8 as to whether their talks were accepted. If your proposal is accepted, you will be expected to confirm within 24 hours that you will give the talk; otherwise, your slot may be given to someone else.

    For more information on Lightning Talks, please see Lightning Talks.

    Lightning talks are an excellent forum for first-time speakers.

  • Standard: 20 minutes

    A standard talk is the preferred format. This is enough time to start a topic, introduce it with some pithy slides, and open up to later conversation.

  • Long and Extra-Long: 40 minutes, 85 minutes

    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 Long or Extra-Long talk may be the format of choice.

  • Tutorial: 3 hours + break (possibly in two sets)

    Half-day (or possibly full-day) tutorials. These tutorials tend to cover a wide range to material for a certain aspect of Perl programming. For example, an XML tutorial could cover XML basics, to writing XML, to parsing XML, to practical uses of XML.

Conference organizers reserve the right to change the length assigned to a talk, if deemed neccessary. If you want to speak on multiple topics, please submit a seperate proposal for each one.

Please submit your abstracts to <>!

Thank you; we hope you will participate. If you have any questions, please email us at <>.
