First announcement and call for speakers

19/09/07 23:26 by Gabor Szabo (‎szabgab‎)

I am happy to announce that we are going to have a Perl Workshop in Israel still this year!

In order to give you the most time to prepare for it, it is scheduled to be on 31st December, 2007.

It is going to be a one day workshop with either one or two rooms. I am not sure yet. - We are going to have talks (if you submit them), - we plan to have job fair during the day - we'll allocate time for BOFs and project showcases and I would be glad to receive ideas for other things to do.

The exact location is not final yet. We have reserved place in both Ramat Efal and in Airport City but I'll consider other options as well if someone helps me arrange the place.

The conference is managed using Act, the tool used by the YAPCs and the various Perl Workshops throughout Europe and the US.

You can already register on the web site:

Cost is not finalized yet, it will also depend on the sponsors we can attract. Speakers can get in free of charge.

So go ahead, register on the web site or if you already have an account, join this conference as well.

The first dead-line for talk submission is 7th October. If we have enough good talks by that time we'll announce the schedule without waiting for others to submit their talks. The real dead-line is 19th October but I really hope we can do it earlier. Remember, you only need to decide on the talk(s) and write an abstract in order to submit the proposal. You will need to write the talk only if is accepted.
