YAPC is a place for people to meet and talk about Perl -- where people
who've done interesting things, people who are working on the language
itself, people who are using it daily, and people who are looking to
learn about it are all within arm's reach. Some of the great authors
and coders in the field will be on hand to discuss their work, as well
as the nature and direction of Perl itself.

Please join us for three days of listening and talking about Perl in

* Submitted papers: 
                    Submission Deadline: May 1, 2001 

All topics are welcome. Here is a short list of subjects that might
be presented:

    XML, CGI/Web, Interprocess Communication, GUIs (GTk, Tk), Natural
    Language Processing, Interactive Perl, Agents, Perl as Glue,
    Object-Oriented Perl, Scientific Applications, Guts, Internals, 
    JAPHs, Perl Poetry, System Administration, DBI/DBD, Non-UNIX Perl, 
    Security, Peer-to-Peer Communication, Your Favourite Topic.

Please submit your abstracts to <>. Authors are
requested to limit their abstracts to one or two paragraphs for
Lightning Talks, and to 300 words for other talks.

This year we will accept a number of types of talks: 

  * Lightning: 5 minutes 

    The lightning talks were instigated by Mark-Jason Dominus last 
    year in Pittsburgh, and were replicated with great success at 
    the European YAPC in London.

    Participants speak for no more than five minutes, with the use 
    of conventional transparencies. Any use of data projector, etc, 
    is discouraged, but allowed as long as the five minute time limit 
    is maintained (set-up will be done as the clock ticks). The talk 
    ends at the five-minute mark, regardless of whether or not the 
    speaker has finished.

    Any topic is allowed, and some have been fantastically humourous. 
    Lightning talks are an excellent forum for first-time speakers.

  * Standard: 20 minutes 

    A 'standard' talk is the preferred format. This is enough time 
    to start a topic, introduce it with some pithy slides, and open 
    up to later conversation.

  * Long and Extra-Long: 45 minutes, 90 minutes 

    Long talks are reserved for experienced speakers covering large
    topics. If you have an in-depth topic you would like to present 
    in some detail, perhaps with considerable discussion, a Long or
    Extra-Long talk may be the format of choice.

  * Tutorial: 3 hours + break (possibly in two sets) 

    Half-day (or possibly full-day) tutorials. 

Please submit your abstracts to <>! 


Yet Another Society is a non-profit organization for the advancement
of collaborative efforts in computer and information sciences.  YAS
