Call For Papers
Attention Speakers! We are again organizing the Nordic
Perl Workshop after Stockholm 2005 and Oslo 2006 the Nordic Perl
Workshop is back in Copenhagen.
The Nordic Perl Workshop 2007 will take place in the weekend
28+29 April 2007.
We plan to make a good workshop, inspired by our Swedish and
Norwegian fellow mongers. So we need some good Perl talks on any
Perl related topic, in either of the following formats:
We accept these presentation formats:
- Lightning Talks (5-7 minutes)
- Standard Talks (30 minutes)
Please submit your talk on the NPW
2007 website, or send an abstract of your talk to email@example.com.
Lightning talks are brief talks that focus on a single example,
idea, project, module or technique. Lightning talks do not attempt
to cover all aspects of their respective topics, but rather to
present a facet of the idea clearly and succinctly. Lightning talks
are an excellent forum for first-time speakers.
A standard talk is the preferred format. This gives enough time
to introduce a topic, presenting it with some slides, and a coverage
of the main points leading up to later, hopefully more in-depth,
discussions (possibly at a BOF).
To submit a proposal for a talk/presentation, please register
on the NPW 2007 website, and use
the talk submission link there. Or send an abstract of your talk
Submissions are due midnight on 4 March 2007 (CET). Submitters
will be notified by end-of-day 7 March whether their talks have
been accepted. If your proposal is accepted, you will be expected
to confirm within 24 hours that you in fact will give the talk;
otherwise, your slot may be given to someone else.
Please submit abstracts/papers on the
NPW 2007 website, where the program committee will review the
submission. If you have something which does not fit the formats
listed please feel free to contacts us anyway and we will evaluate
Workshop organisers reserve the right to adjust the length
assigned to a talk, if necessary. If you want to speak on multiple
topics, please submit separate proposals for each one.
If your talk is much longer than 30 minutes, please consider
breaking it into 30-minute parts, to accommodate our schedule.
Please include the following with your abstract(s):
- A little information about yourself (and possibly an
image of your choosing - preferably of yourself).
- An indication of preferred language and possible languages the
presentation can be given in.
- An indication of the length of the presentation. 30 minutes
preferred, for anything but lightning talks.
- A listing of any requirements you might have for doing your
presentation. We will try to accommodate your request. Projectors
will be available for all talks.
We might want to arrange a BOF as a follow-up to a talk and hope
that speakers will welcome this and participate.
If possible, please include your slides/paper ready for online
publishing, in one of the following file formats:
The files are also accepted just after talk ends, so you can
include any last minute modifications.
We plan on doing audio and/or video recordings of the presentations,
and making these avaliable on our website. If you have issues with
this, please let us know in advance.
We cannot offer much, but what we can offer is:
- Free admittance (does not apply to lightning talk speakers)
- A chance to meet a lot of Perl people
If you have any special requests, which have to do with fee or
payment, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you; we hope you will participate either as a speaker or
as an attendee.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to
contact us at email@example.com.
