YAPC North America 2005: Yet Another Perl Conference
Call for Participation
YAPC North America 2005: First Call for Participation
Yet Another Society
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Monday through Wednesday
YAPC is a place for people to meet and talk about Perl -- where people who've done interesting things, people who are working on the language itself, people who are using it daily, and people who are looking to learn about it are all within arm's reach. Some of the great authors and coders in the field will be on hand to discuss their work, as well as the nature and direction of Perl itself.
Please join us for three days of listening, talking and learning about Perl in Toronto.
You might want to make a donation to The Perl Foundation as well. You can certainly do that through this link at any time, including now.
Abstract Submission Deadline: April 18, 2005
Submissions regarding all Perl topics are welcome, but they must be technical topics aimed at the benefit of the attendees (not marketing talks aimed at the benefit of some product or service associated with the presenter.)
Authors will be notified if their abstract is accepted or rejected.
We're currently working on the budget for YAPC::NA 2005 and our hope is to provide speakers at the conference with either a reduced fee or a waived fee entirely. Possibly there will be a combination of these approaches built into a sliding scale based on the amount of speaking time.
Please register your abstracts online at
Thank you; we hope you will participate. If you have any questions, please mail <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
