Italian Perl Workshop 2008: Guest Speakers

Thanks to the sponsors, like in the fourth edition, this year too we're inviting many international guest speakers. The following ones are currently confirmed:

The 2009 IPW edition will be a great edition, don't miss it!

Dave Rolsky will not come to Italian Perl Workshop - Moose world-class cancelled

Unfortunately, the organization had to cancel Dave Rolsky participation (due to personal reason).
Also Moose World Class (scheduled on October 21, 2009) has been cancelled.
We strongly hope to have Dave next year for YAPC::EU 2010

Call for Paper: last days for submissions

On Sunday September 20, 2009 we're closing the Call for Papers for the 2009 edition of Italian Perl Workshop. So, if you still have to send your paper in, this is a right moment to do it. ;-)

Payment system for registration / participation confirmation opened

We are officially opening the payment system for registration or participation confirmation to the conference.
Organizational costs are (for us) nearly always a problem, and this year the organizers have even managed to cover the expenses of 5 guest speakers coming from all over Europe.
Once you have logged in, you can go to the 'Edit profile' page, and follow the 'confirm your participation' link. On that page you can confirm you participation.
Therefore, if you want to support the Workshop, you can choose to pay the "Supporter" price or make a donation. This will help us to improve the services the workshop offers, and to organize events of always increasing quality in the future.
In addition, by buying the "Supporter pack" ticket, you'll also get these extras:

We'd like, for all the people that plan to be at the dinner on 22/10/2009, to buy their tickets before October 08, 2009: that will help us in the organization and booking the restaurant.
However you will be able to confirm and pay for attendees' dinner at conference reception during registration (of course if there will still be available places).
Some things to note:

  1. If you are a speaker, that is, you are going to give some (non-lightning) talks, you don't have to buy a conference ticket. Of course, you can buy a ticket, but we will not force you to. Don't worry, we'll give you the T-shirt!
  2. If you are a speaker, that is, you are going to give some (non-lightning) talks, you don't have to buy the dinner ticket: the organization is happy to offer it to you.
  3. If you are a 'guest' speaker or sponsor you don't have to buy a ticket and/or an Attendees' Dinner ticket.
  4. We are about to put in the t-shirt order for IPW 2009 t-shirts. If you are planning on buying Supporter ticket or only the t-shirt, please set your size of t-shirt in your profile page.

Hotel discounts

The organization contacted several hotels in Pisa in order to have discounts and rooms reservation for conferences attendees.
If you planned to stay in Pisa during workshop days, now is the time for booking! (September is high season in Pisa)
For more informations see Accomodation page where you could find details about hotels, prices and deadline booking of reserved rooms.
We are contacting other hotels to get more discounted rooms. As soon as we have news, we'll publish them on the page above.
