Call for Participation - YAPC::Europe 2007 in Vienna

Vienna.pm is officially announcing the call for participation for Yet
Another Perl Conference Europe 2007. This years conference theme is
"Social Perl".


The conference will be held in Vienna, Austria, from 29th to 31st
 August 2007 at the Vienna University of Economics and Business

Star guests

We found sponsors to invite some famous international Perl hackers.

Thanks to nfotex for inviting Larry (and Gloria) Wall, to Anonymous
Donor for getting Damian Conway from Australia to Austria (it's quite
expensive to get the 'al' out of Australia...) and to geizhals.at for
inviting Audrey Tang and Mark Jason Dominus.


The final schedule will be announced on 22nd of July 2007.

Would-be speakers please see the Call for Papers available on the
conference website for more information on key dates and talks.


* Regular attendance:        100 EUR
* Students and Early Birds:   80 EUR
* Business/Sponsor Tariff:   200 EUR

Regular attendance costs 100 Euro, and 80 Euros for students. Early
birds only pay 80 Euros (if paid until 31st March 2007). There is also
 a voluntary business/sponsor tariff at 200 Euros, which is an easy way
 to sponsor YAPC::Europe 2007 and Perl in general.

You will not only get three days packed with interesting talks and
people, but also a goodie bag, a conference t-shirt, an invitation to
the attendees dinner and the unique opportunity to see renowned members
of the Perl community with orange mohawks.

As YAPC::Europe is a community-driven conference, we're not in it for
the profit. But should we make one, all money will be used for funding
further Perl 5|6 development, future YAPC::Europe conferences and for
advancing Perl usage / the Perl community in Austria.
