Italian Perl Workshop (IPW) 2012 - Call for Sponsors

The Workshop provides an international forum for practitioners and researchers from industry, academia and government. The Workshop is aimed at Perl users, professionals and hobbyists alike, but also to those who are just starting out in this language and want to learn its characteristics and culture. Presentations and discussions will cover all applied and theoretical work currently conducted about Perl related technologies.

The last editions of Italian Perl Workshop were a success: more than 100 attendees from all of Europe over 2 days of conference with free admission, 2 concurrent tracks + a Perl base course, more than 30 talks from 20 speakers. We plan to improve these numbers with the 2012 edition.

Sponsorship presents an opportunity, for leading companies in the industry, to contact hundreds of national and international experts, and to exhibit to a wide range of the industry, research centres and universities of all over the world, offering long lasting benefits. It is beneficial for your company to be associated with the Workshop, to gain international visibility and recognition. The amount of your financial support is left to your convenience, and there are obviously no constraints. However, some different possibilities are presented below, to guide your choice.
