We invite you to contribute to The Perl Conference, which will take place in August 2017 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. These meetings were formerly known as YAPC::EU, the yearly meeting of Perl Mongers in Europe.
The theme of this conference is High-end Perl: Perl is (often in a somewhat hidden way) used for many large commercial and research applications. So, a considerable number of talks will focus their content in this area.
But please, do not feel restricted to this topic: we welcome any good story about your experiences with our magnificent languages!
Presentations can take 5 minutes (lightning talks), 20 or 45 minutes (normal lengths), and longer.
The preferred format is a 20 minute talk. It is projected that the majority of talks will be of this length: we prefer concise contributions by as many conferences participants as possible. We would like 45 minute talks to adhere more strictly to their subject and published audience level.
Long talks (60 up to 90 minutes) are reserved for experienced speakers covering major topics. If you have an in-depth topic you would like to present in some detail, perhaps with considerable discussion, a long slot may be available for you. This is usually split into an introductory and an advanced session.
Tutorials (up to 180 minutes) are available for beginner and introductory style presentations.
Just to give you some hints about "high end":
If you are willing to give a talk:
First, you need to be registered as a participant (existing users find a link to register on their User settings page, new users click Register / New user). Then a link to submit a talk will be available on the User settings page. You can also find this link in the Talks & events menu.
Please leave remarks in the submission form. If you have questions, then mail the program committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The venue will have space available for hacking sessions out of the schedule. If you have anything to contribute to hacking sessions, please notify the organizers so they can reserve hacking spaces.
