In this Newsletter:

1. Talk Submissions
2. A Caution

1. Talk Submissions
This is to remind you all that the deadline for Talk Submissions is 
rapidly approaching (12th November) so if you want to submit a talk, 
including a lightning talk then you had best to get your skates on and 
submit right now.

2. A Caution
It was brought to my attention that one (and possibly more but this 
could all be fruitless hearsay) person last year didn't attend the 
conference just the social afterwards, perhaps hoping to capitalise on 
the free beer and food. Personally I cannot believe this would happen, 
but to prevent tittle-tattle and to exercise my rights as 
extreme-overlord-of-organising I shall declare that this year a drink or 
food shall only be given to those persons with a conference badge. This 
will satisfy two main aims:

a. It will get you all to register.
b. It will cause SlayerXP more overhead as he will have to do the 
checking of the badges.
c. We'll be able to recognise others, and ourselves, by the name tags on 
our necks.
d. It may stop the tittle-tattle.
e. We'll look like a bunch of tourists.
f.  I just like thinking up lists of things.
g. The lanyards can be used to lasso a kebab at three in the morning.
h. There is no h.

(Please pick your own two main aims)


The conference will be held on Saturday 4th December at the University 
of Westminster's New Cavendish Campus. Please visit the website below

This year's theme is Perl Flavours. Unlike previous years the keynote 
will be decided from the most appropriate 40 minute talk that best fits 
this theme. The proposal deadline is 12th November and speakers will be 
informed on the 15th November. See:
