Subject: [Conferences] FOSDEM 2012 Perl dev-room: Call For Speakers
December 21, 2011
To: conferences a yapceurope.org

Taking place in the beautiful city of Brussels (Belgium), FOSDEM is
the biggest free and non-commercial European event organized by and
for the community. Its goal is to provide Free and Open Source
developers a place to meet (see http://fosdem.org/2012/).

Over the last years the Perl community had an increasing presence at
FOSDEM. Last year we managed to have both a booth and a dev-room. We
collected an impressive positive return and wish to renew the

Our dev-room request for this upcoming edition (2012) has already been
approved (the stand request is still pending but we foresee no
problems there). The stand will be open throughout the weekend. The
dev-room event will take place Sunday February 5th 2012 , between 9
and 17h. The room itself has 81 seats, WIFI and a VGA projector.

This environment, being a university classroom with raised seats,
lends itself perfectly for talks. This is a wonderful opportunity to
present your Perl project –big and small– or talk about subjects you
care about. We are looking for a variety of subjects on all levels:
starter and advanced, generic and specialized, core internals and
CPAN. We have 8 hours time, so we have the flexibility of using
different time formats: e.g. talks of 20 minutes, more classic talks
of 40 minutes or longer (although we learned from experience that
longer talks should be split into slices of 20 or 40 minutes).

Please don’t doubt to send a proposal (information about yourself,
subject, short description and time needed). If you have several
subjects you are enthusiastic to talk about please send alternative
proposals. In the case more than one talk is not selected, your
proposal will help us when putting the schedule together and even have
“backup” talks in case someone cancels. Also mention your time
constraints (if any).

Please send your talk proposal by e-mail to the address below before
January 11th, 2012. After an evaluation period we will submit a
definitive schedule on Saturday 2012-01-21 to the FOSDEM organizers.

Please forward distribute this call as wide as possible (certainly to
your local mongers). You can link to this page, url:

Claudio Ramirez (nxadm, email: padre.claudio at apt-get.be) and the
Belgian Perl Mongers.

NB1: This is a community event without sponsoring. We don’t have the
means to pay for your trip and time. If you want to sponsor part of
the event, please feel free to contact us.

NB2: We’ll also appreciate volunteers, booth and dev-room. Please tell
us your availabilities so we can also prepare a planning for this.
