While we are all looking forward to YAPC::Europe 2008 in Copenhagen, it's time for the YAPC::Europe Venue Committee to consider suitable hosts for the 2009 conference. Any dedicated group interested in hosting YAPC::Europe::2009 should send a brief statement of intent to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. For this first statement of intent a few lines like "City.pm is interested in hosting YAPC::Europe 2009" will be enough.
A full and complete application should then be sent to the same address prior to the deadline for applications, which is June 30, 2008. The YAPC::Europe Venue Committee will inform applicants by July 31, 2008 if their proposal was chosen. The public announcement of the location for the 2009 conference will be announced during the 2008 conference in Copenhagen.
For more information about the requirements for hosting a conference, you may want to refer to the YAPC organiser's documentation (administered by TPF) on Google code, or look at the examples of previous European conferences.
At YAPC::Europe 2008 in Copenhagen there will be a Perl Mongers BOF. One topic if this BOF is conference organising, so if any group thinks they might like to host the event in the future, it would be an ideal time to come along.
Please direct any questions to email@example.com, and a member of the committee will endeavour to respond as soon as possible.
Looking forward to your submissions,
on behalf of the YAPC::Europe Venue Committee
