We will accept various types of presentations:

  • Lightning Talks (5-7 min)
  • Standard Talks (30,60,90 min + possible break)
  • Tutorials (2 to 3 hours + posible break)
  • BOFs are expected to appear where and when necessary during the workshop, we will try to accomodate these aswell If you want to attend the workshop as a speaker please send a abstract of your talk/tutorial (see the submission section below for details).

Lightning Talks
Lightning talks are brief talks that focus on a single example, idea, project, or technique. Lightning talks do not attempt to cover all aspects of their subject matter, but rather to present one facet of the idea clearly and succinctly. Lightning talks are an excellent forum for first-time speakers. To submit a proposal for a lightning talk, please send your proposed title and an abstract of up to four sentences to: <>. or hand it in at the conference registration.

Standard Talks
A standard talk is the preferred format. This is enough time to start a topic, introduce it with some pithy slides, and open up to later conversation (a BOF?). To submit a proposal for a talk/presentation, please send your proposed title and an abstract to: Submissions are due by April 1st. midnight (CET). Submitters will be notified by end-of-day April 3rd. as to whether their talks have been accepted. If your proposal is accepted, you will be expected to confirm within 24 hours that you will give the talk; otherwise, your slot may be given to someone else.

Tutorials tend to cover a wide range to material for a certain aspect of Perl programming. Submissions for tutorial are under the same rules as for papers Standard talks (see above).

Please submit your abstracts/papers to <>, your paper will be reviewed by our programme committee consisting of:

  • Claes Jacobsson, Stockholm Perl Mongers
  • Henrik Bøgh, Copenhagen Perl Mongers
  • Lars G. T. Jørgensen, Copenhagen Perl Mongers

Workshop organizers reserve the right to change the length assigned to a talk, if deemed neccessary. If you want to speak on multiple topics, please submit a seperate proposal for each one.
Together with your abstract or abstracts please include:

  • A little information about yourself (and possibly an link to an image of your choosing - preferrably yourself)
  • A indication of preferred language and possible languages the presentation can be given in
  • An indication of the length of the presentation
  • A listing of any requirements you might have for doing your presentation, such as whiteboards, projectors, black chickens etc. and we will try to accomodate this.
