We are ready to accept talk proposals. There are two standard talk slots this year: 20 and 40 minutes. Exceptions are available for keynotes and small teaching classes: 60 and 120 minutes.
We also plan to have three sessions of lightning talks, one per each conference day.
To submit a talk, please visit http://act.yapc.eu/ye2012/newtalk and fill the form. We kindly request to carefully select target audience (beginner, intermediate, advanced, or any): it will help potential attendees to decide if they are going to attend the talk.
All the approved speakers (except those who give lightning talks only) attend the conference free of charge.
Talk submission deadline is 15th July 2012 (six weeks before the conference). Latest approval notification: 31st of July. We will evaluate talk submissions every three weeks and accept a handful proposals. This doesn't mean that if your talk isn't approved right away, it won't be. However, the sooner you get your talk proposals in, the better chance you have of getting a talk approved and placed on the schedule.
Our deadline for proposals is July 15, 2012. So get those proposals in now. This year, there's no time for procrastination, because the slots will be getting filled up in real-time.
This year we plan to have proceedings, so please prepare a paper when your talk is approved. We will post more details in time.
