Call for Papers & 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 28th to 30st August 
2007 at the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration.

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. 

Call for Papers

Please submit your talk proposals using the interface provided on our 
website no later than 23:59 GMT on Sunday, 27th May 2007.

We are looking for talks taking 20, 40 or 60 minutes, covering various 
topics related to Perl. More information on the Call for Papers can be 
found here:


* 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.

Win books!

We have two coffee-table books (one including a DVD) on Vienna to raffle 
off. To enter the contest, all you need to do is to either register for 
the conference and pay your ticket, or submit a talk proposal until 31th
