European Yet Another Perl Conference
YAPC 2001

Thursday-Saturday, August 2-4, 2001 at the Hogeschool Holland Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Abstract submission deadline: June 1, 2001

Yet Another Perl Conference (YAPC) is an inexpensive (< 100 EURO) Perl users and developers conference, with a mix of tutorials and technical talks. The conference is set in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

YAPC began as a grassroots users conference, from discussions among Perl Mongers, and has grown from there. We would like to invite you to join us for three days of Perl, people, and demonstrations, at a price that shouldn't hurt your wallet. There will be a limit of around 500 people for the conference.

A number of members of the Perl community are contributing to this event.

See the main web page for more details --


Potential presenters should submit a 200-300 word abstract to
in plain ASCII text or HTML by June 1st for consideration. We would like your materials to be available online, but that is not required. If you have materials to include in the proceedings, or course notes, please let us know of your requirements in the abstract. If you have any special presentation needs, please include them also.

The conference theme will be Security, so a portion of the talks will be about that subject in some way. So if you have some knowledge of Perl related security issues, or use Perl in security related areas, you're more then welcome to share this with fellow Perl users at the conference.

Suggestions :

  • writing secure Perl CGI programs
  • security bloopers
  • cryptography techniques
  • cryptography applications
  • security issues in past and coming versions of perl
  • How you use Perl to enhance security of your network or website
  • Modules useful in security
  • Whatever you find interesting that's Perl- and security related

A part of the time will be available for other Perl related subjects. Suggestions for subjects:

  • Groupware, Agents, and Bots
  • Perl in the world of Windows
  • MacPerl
  • Perl for Speech and Language
  • Text and Document Processing
  • Machine Learning in Perl
  • HTML, XML, and Markup Languages
  • CGI and Web programming in Perl
  • Internet Programming
  • Database Interaction and Access with Perl
  • Scientific Computing (e.g. with PDL)
  • Practical Perl Programming
  • Module guts and usage on any particular Module.
  • Tutorials of all stripes: Modules, Objects, CPAN
  • Visionary or position papers on Perl, the past, the present, and the future
  • Anything cool :)

We have the following time slots in our schedule, so your contribution could have one of the following durations:

  • 180 minute tutorials
  • 90 minute talks
  • 40 minute talks
  • 25 minute talks
  • lightning talks (5 minutes)

Conference fees will be waived for presenters at yapc (lightning talks excepted), so another way to reduce your costs is to give a good talk on something you're excited about.

We are looking for sponsors. Please contact Jouke ( for information about how you can help support YAPC Europe. Much of the necessary funding for YAPC comes from the generous donations of our sponsors.
