YAPC::NA 2006 Call For Participation

[ #27878 ]
On behalf of The Perl Foundation, is officially announcing the call for participation for Yet Another Perl Conference North America 2006. The conference will be held in Chicago, Illinois on June 26th through June 28th at the Illinois Institute of Technology.

Since this is Yet Another Perl Conference, we are looking for presentations that would be of interest to Perl programmers. Typically this would be something directly related to programming Perl, but it doesn't have to be.

In addition, this year we are branching out into the wider realm of dynamic languages. Though most all sessions will be about Perl, we are planning on slipping in a few talks on languages such as Ruby and Python. Think "Python for Perl Programmers" or "Ruby Has Rails, Why Doesn't Perl?"

We are looking for 20, 50, and 80 minute presentations. If you aren't quite ready to present for that long, don't worry, a call for five minute lightning talks will be announced closer to conference time. Both individual and group presentations are welcome. Also, feel free to submit multiple proposals to increase your chances of being chosen.

Please send your submissions to Be sure to include a title for your presentation, an abstract, and the amount of time that you think you will need to present. If you will need some form of presentation equipment beyond a podium, microphone, and projector, please note that in your submission.

The deadline for abstract submissions is April 10th 2006, but we are more than happy to start receiving submissions today. When you submit your proposal, expect to get a confirmation within a week. If you don't hear from us, try to resubmit.
