Greetings one and all,

As you all know the talk submission deadline is this evening at 
midnight, but I notice that we still have very few lightening talks 
submitted, so in order for you all to get your Lightening-Talk boots on 
(and of course to give others a chance to submit longer talks) I urge 
you to submit soon, I will extend the talk deadline until midnight on 
Monday 15th November. the field is still wide open for the coveted 
*Keynote Slot* so try to think on our theme - it could be your talk that 
makes the cut.

As you may also be aware from previous newsletters there is a Lightening 
Talk Bingo being run at the same time as the talks and that presenters 
are banned from participating, but fear not if this is putting you off 
from participation in the talks as there is a similar valued prize being 
awarded for best lightening talk as judged by the audience. So you will 
not be left out of the prizes. I might also remind all potential 
submitters that the kind chaps at Nestoria will be handing out prizes 
once again this year that are extra to the ones I have just mentioned 
above. Please note that there will be no room for submitting talks after 
this deadline.

Prizes, a free conference, free beer, free food, our sponsors love you, 
love them back.

I look forward to reading the flood of submissions.


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:
