Greetings one and all,
As you all know the talk submission deadline is this evening at midnight, but I notice that we still have very few lightening talks submitted, so in order for you all to get your Lightening-Talk boots on (and of course to give others a chance to submit longer talks) I urge you to submit soon, I will extend the talk deadline until midnight on Monday 15th November. the field is still wide open for the coveted *Keynote Slot* so try to think on our theme - it could be your talk that makes the cut.
As you may also be aware from previous newsletters there is a Lightening Talk Bingo being run at the same time as the talks and that presenters are banned from participating, but fear not if this is putting you off from participation in the talks as there is a similar valued prize being awarded for best lightening talk as judged by the audience. So you will not be left out of the prizes. I might also remind all potential submitters that the kind chaps at Nestoria will be handing out prizes once again this year that are extra to the ones I have just mentioned above. Please note that there will be no room for submitting talks after this deadline.
Prizes, a free conference, free beer, free food, our sponsors love you, love them back.
I look forward to reading the flood of submissions.
The conference will be held on Saturday 4th December at the University of Westminster's New Cavendish Campus. Please visit the website below for more information and don't forget to log in/register for the conference:

This year's theme is Perl Flavours. Unlike previous years the keynote will be decided from the most appropriate 40 minute talk that best fits this theme. The proposal deadline is 12th November and speakers will be informed on the 15th November. See:
