Journal written by domm (4030) and posted by grinder on 2008.03.30 7:56   Printer-friendly
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 as soon as possible. For this first statement of intent a few lines like " 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.

Please direct any questions to, and a member of the committee will endeavour to respond as soon as possible.

Looking forward to your submissions,
  Thomas Klausner

htoug writes "We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the YAPC Europe 2008 in Copenhagen, Denmark 13-15 August 2008.

The theme for this year's conference is "Beautiful Perl", which we hope will inspire submissions on this and related topics.

Whether you have done beautiful things in Perl, you think Perl code is beautiful in itself (or not!) or if Perl has helped you do beautiful things, we would love to hear about it.

Although this is our main theme for the conference, it will not be the only one, and as such we will also be accepting talks on topics on just about any theme.

Please submit talk proposals via the conference web site until Sunday, 25th May 2008. A Call for Participation will follow in a few weeks."
