I don't find how to create a new account, to log in.
Nor on this website, nor on the Act website.
Did anybody manage to do so ?

Thank you :o)

> It is my great pleasure to announce the date of this year's London Perl
> Workshop (the United Kingdom's Perl Workshop), which will be held on:
> Saturday 24th November 2012
> University of Westminster
> Cavendish Square Campus
> The London Perl Workshop is a free one-day conference in central London,
> UK. LPW is the UK's Premier Perl Event and so is also known as the
> United Kingdom Perl Workshop (UKPW). In 2012
> If you would like to come then please log in on the site and click that
> you will attend, this is an important step for us and our sponsors so we
> can judge numbers for the events and activities. If you are not already
> registered with Act you can do so on this site, it is free and easy to
> do. If you have attended a Perl event recently, with the exception of
> YAPC::NA::2012 who maintain their own database, you will probably
> already have a login with Act, otherwise you will need to create a new
> user first. You can do this by using the links in the navigation menu on
> the website which will soon be live on
> http://www.londonperlworkshop.org.uk.
> If you would like to speak then please submit your talk on the website
> as soon as possible - the earlier you submit, the better for the
> organisation of the event. If you want to check on specific requirements
> or have an idea for a type of talk or event then please contact the
> organisers.
> The theme for the London Perl Workshop will be 25 Years of Perl, and
> will focus on the manner in which Perl is used in the commercial world
> and the strength of Perl for development in an enterprise environment;
> we would also like to see talks on the usage of Perl in the past 25
> years and the evolution of the environment. You can use any aspect of
> Perl such as Camelia, Rakudo, Raptor, etc. Speakers are invited to talk
> on any subject that relates to this theme, though we will also accept
> talks on other subjects.
> This year we hope to have access to three workshop rooms and would like
> to run as many workshops as possible to introduce new users to the world
> of Perl and to refresh the skills of those wishing to engage with the
> latest developments in the Perl world. If you wish to submit a workshop
> please use the same submission form as the talks, please note that
> workshops will typically be 60, 120 or 240 minutes in length.
> Proposal Deadline: Friday 19 October 2012
> Speaker Notification: Monday 22 October 2012
> There will be further announcements detailing the launch of the website,
> at which point the call for papers, login and further event details will
> be open.
> Each year we are required to fund the conference rooms, lecture theatres
> and workshop rooms, as well as arrange and cover the costs for many
> other activities normally associated with the London Perl Workshop such
> as the famous sponsored beer after the conference. We will once again be
> hosted by the Department of Electronic, Communication and Software
> Engineering who have secured us a generous discount on the normal
> university room rates and who will hopefully play a greater part in the
> event this year with activities that coincide with the workshop.

> packages may be tailored to your specific needs), please forward this to
