Preconference Meeting / Early Registration

The Pre-Conference Meetup is a traditional chance for attendees new and old to meet up and say hello before the conference begins.

The event will take place on Sunday, 2nd August from about 18:00.

We'll meet by the Irish Pub (it is called Irish & Co, address Rua da Pimenta 17-21) at the Expo98 area. Wearing Perl t-shirts will help.

The Irish Pub is in the row of bars close to the river.

Take the subway to the Oriente station (it's the last station on the red line; see LisbonSubway for details on the Subway). Here's a googlemap of the route for folks coming from the Radisson hotel (also useful for those coming from the venue itself).

The Irish Pub is within walking distance from the Subway.

The Irish Pub is within walking distance from the Subway. Exit Oriente Station, walk to the east. Walk from Via Reciproca, Avenido de Berlim, Passeio do Cantabrico or Avendo Dom Joao II to the Avenido do Indico or Avenido do Pacifico. Cross the street (Alameda dos Oceanos) and go left (north) on this street. Walk into the next street on your right: Rua do Bojador. The Rua da Pimenta is the second street on your left.

Irish Pub

The Irish Pub serves food and drinks, and there are several other places around it to suit everyone's tastes when it comes to both food and drinks.

From that area you'll be able to see the Tagus river and also the longest bridge in Europe.

We strongly encourage you to walk a bit around and see the sights.

Please note that the pre-conference meetups are not part of the conference budget, so you are expected to fund your own beer and food expenses.


Some of the bars around the Irish Pub provide free wifi. 'Peter's' and 'Café da Palha' are two of them.
