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

Lightning Talks

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.

Standard Talks

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 to

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 it.

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:

  • plain text
  • HTML
  • PDF

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

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
