Nordic Perl Workshop 2008 - Call for Papers & Participation
Stockholm Perl Mongers and its fellow Nordic Perl Mongers arranges the annual Nordic Perl Workshop in Stockholm, Sweden on the 24th and 25th of May (over a weekend). This is the second time the workshop is arranged in Stockholm and the 6th time in total. The venue for this years workshop is located right next to Vasaparken near Odenplan, in the heart of Stockholm. During summertime this is a green oasis where one can chill in the grass, watch people or take a break in some of the park's coffee-shops. Odenplan also offers a wide range of restaurants and pubs in it's vicinity.
Nordic Perl Workshop is a workshop for the community by the community and we want you to submit interesting and inspiring presentations in order to make the workshop successful. Talk lengths are the usual 20 and 40 minutes but we might consider longer ones if motivated. Any subject is welcome as long as it's related to Perl somehow - from algorithms for social graphing and web-technologies to Perl5 core optimizations and language implementation targeting the Parrot VM. To submit a talk either do it online on the workshop website or to firstname.lastname@example.org. If submitting via email please prefix the subject with [NPW]. Please submit talks no later than Friday 2nd of May. Accepted speakers will be notified Monday 5th of May.
Apart from speakers the workshop also requires eager participants. Workshop fee is 500 SEK (~ 55 EUR) and there's a reduced fee at 250 SEK (~ 28 EUR) for students. This includes admission to the workshop and coffee. Registration is done via the website which uses ACT so if you have attended a previous workshop registration is dead simple.
 Website is not online yet but we're working on it really hard. The URL is as always http://www.perlworkshop.dk/
