You can find more information on the speaker's site:

A CSS Sprite is an image obtained by arranging many smaller images on a 2D
canvas, according to a certain layout.

Transferring one larger image is generally faster than transferring multiple
images separately as it greatly reduces the number of HTTP requests (and
overhead) necessary to render the original images on the browser.

CSS Sprites today speed up many websites, and several tools are available to
combine multiple images in an optimized way across the major programming
communities. In this talk I will briefly review existing CSS Sprite Generators, and introduce CSS::SpriteMaker, an extensible, easy-to-use Perl module and an effort to bring smart CSS Sprite generation in the Perl community.
