The Perl and Raku Conference: Call for Speakers Renewed

by talexb (Chancellor)
on Apr 11, 2024 at 03:06 UTC ( [id://11158812]=perlnews: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The Perl and Raku Conference is fast approaching! We will be in Las Vegas on June 24-28, (main conference June 25-27). We want more speakers, so we are reopening the full call for talks/papers/posters.

The new deadline is April 20, midnight Las Vegas time. (April 21 00:00 UTC) (April 21 07:00 UTC)

Now that the eclipse is not a distraction, please consider submitting a talk (50 minute, or 20 minute) or a scientific paper or poster before that deadline! Link to conference website Speakers will be informed of talk acceptance by April 30. Whether speaker or attendee, we look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas!

Nota Bene: 20m talks, 50m talks, papers, and posters earn free admission for the presenter. Giving a Lightning Talk does not reduce the admission fee, but earns our appreciation and delight!

Update on 2024-0418: Jeepers. Kids, don't play with time zones. There are so many ways to get them wrong. Thanks to LanX.

    That confused me, I know that some states have weird timezones but UTC is Greenwich time.

    🦆🦆🚶🏻‍♂️ says:

    • Las Vegas, Nevada, United States PDT (UTC-7)
    So I checked papercall and it says

    CFP closes at

    • April 21, 2024 07:00 UTC
    • April 21, 2024 09:00 (Local)
    I'd say it means my local time, which is UTC+2 in summer in much of Western and Central Europe (CEST)

    So it should rather say

    • The new deadline is April 20, midnight Las Vegas time. (April 21 07:00 UTC )
