Welcome the ninth official bulletin for the 2006 YAPC::Europe Perl
Conference in Birmingham, UK. 

==== Call For Participation ====

We've got a venue, scheduled speakers and now have so much momentum, we
don't think we could stop this thing if we tried! The next step is to
get you lot as excited as we are. As such we are pleased to open up the
website and conference registration to everyone.

==== Website Registration ====

Prior to booking a place on the conference register, individuals will
need to register on the website. Fill in all your details and submit.
The system will create a login for you so you're ready for conference

PLEASE NOTE: Registration for the conference website and the conference
wiki are two different mechanisms and are not integrated.

To register for the website, please click on the 'Registration' link in
the top box on the right hand side of the page. From here you will be
presented a registration screen. Please enter your details and click the
Register button. Once successfully registered, you will be automatically

==== Conference Registration ====

As mentioned in a previous backstage bulletin, we have two types of
conference fee available, a standard rate and an individual rate.

Note that all payment processing will be handled by PayPal, and we will
not process any of your credit details.

To register for the conference, please click on the 'Registration' link
in the second 'Conference' box on the right hand side of each page of
the website (http://www.birmingham2006.com). From here you will be
presented with either Standard or Individual registration button. Click
the appropriate button and complete the following screens. The final
confirmation screen will include a PayPal button, which you can click to
complete the payment process.

The standard rate of ?100 (approximately 150 Euros) per attendee is for
businesses who would like to send attendees and make a single payment.
On the standard rate registration screen, please enter the appropriate
details for each attendee and complete the payment process. Receipts
will be available for collection at the conference or can be sent by
recorded delivery, fax or email as requested.

The individual rate of ?75 (approximately 110 Euros) is for those
attendees who will be handling all the registration and payment process
themselves. Prior to registering with the individual rate, you will need
to login or register to the website. On the individual rate screen,
please verify your details and complete the payment process. 

Attendees registered through the standard process, may register for the
website at any time, although the automated process will create a basic
login once payment has been cleared. You will then be required to login
and complete registration. Note that you will need to register with the
same email address as supplied on the standard form. If there is any
change to these details, please let us know as soon as possible.

==== Venue Capacity ====

We have a limited capacity venue. Our absolute capacity is 300, which
includes attendees, speakers, organisers and conference helpers. If we
reach our full capacity we will not be able to accept further online
registration or payment "on the door". As such it is recommended you
register for conference registration at your earliest convenience.

Online registration will close on the morning (GMT) of Saturday 26th
August, or when full capacity has been reached, whichever occurs first. 

Only in the event of online sales not reaching venue capacity will we
accept people on the door. Please note that the discounted individual
rate will not be available after the close of online registration.

Just to make this clear - if you turn up expecting to pay on the day it
will cost you ?100 and places will be subject to availability. Therefore
you are strongly recommended to purchase your ticket online.

==== Introduction To Our Sponsors ====

Following on from our previous major newsletter, we are extremely
pleased to announce a further sponsor.

1) Morgan Stanley

Platinum sponsor, Morgan Stanley are set to sponsor Lecture Room 1. We
are delighted to have them aboard, helping us to put on a great
conference for you all.

Morgan Stanley is a global financial services firm offering a complete
range of sophisticated financial services to a large and diversified
group of clients and customers, including sovereign governments,
corporations, institutions and individuals throughout the world. With a
unique balance between institutional and retail capabilities, Morgan

businesses - securities, investment management and credit services.

==== Introducing The Team ====

We've introduced the core members of the organisational team, but now
we'd like to introduce you to two press-ganged members of the
organisational team.

Jon Brookes
first came along to a Birmingham Perl Mongers meeting when he couldn't
find who was responsible for the Stafford group (it died a long time
ago) and felt Birmingham.pm was easier to get to than Manchester.pm
(which has also since died). Jon has been helping us to look after the
server that was kindly donated by Positive Internet, and ensuring the
upgrades, patches and reboots work as expected.

Andrew Stringer
has been a constant source of suggestions for venues, local sponsors and
generally opening up the networking within the local government to help
us find alternative ways of funding the event. Andrew is an enthusiastic
Perl Monger and a keen Linux and Open Source advocate

==== Contact ====

Should you wish to contact us, there is an email address
(organisers at birmingham2006.com) available for direct contact, where you
can mail us with your questions and suggestions. There is also the
regular YAPC::Europe conference mailing list
(http://lists.yapceurope.org/mailman/listinfo/conferences), which is
open to all.

That's all for this release. Look out for more news and announcements in
the future.
