Copenhagen Perl Mongers are proud to announce that we will be hosting the 2013 edition of the Nordic Perl Workshop in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The workshop will take place on Saturday the 23rd. of November, at DK Hostmaster in central Copenhagen.

We have now opened for registration and submissions of talks on our website We encourage anyone interested in sharing their experiences or ideas, to submit their proposals.

Important deadlines:

  • Submission deadline: Monday 4th. of November
  • Confirmation: Friday 8th. of November
  • Final program available: Friday 8th. of November

All talks are expected to be accepted, notification of non-acceptance will only be used if we by no means have room for a presentation or the topic is diverting so much from the other talks that it would not have relevance for the workshop.

Accepted formats for presentation abstracts:

  • Extended Talks (90 minutes)
  • Standard Talks (45 minutes)
  • Short Talks (20 minutes)
  • Lightning Talks (5 minutes)

All topics are of interest, all levels are welcome and talks in Danish and English are accepted - you do NOT have to be an experienced presenter, we emphasize participation as an important ingredient at the workshop.

We expect to end the day in a lightning talk session and the session is expected to be ad hoc, but if your have something brief on your mind already, you can submit it now.

More information can be found on the workshop's website:

The organizers can be contacted at

How To Submit

Create an account (or, if you have attended an Act-powered conference before, just log in to your existing account) and join the workshop. You will then be able to submit talks.

When To Submit

As soon as possible! For lightning talks, we will accept submissions even during the workshop, provided the sessions have not filled up. They can be a great way to respond to or comment on other talks that you have seen.

Speaker Benefits

Since this is a community event, we are not able to pay presenters for their work, but you will have an audience and you will help making the workshop a success and as a speaker you are ensured one of those limited seats.

Copenhagen Perl Mongers are looking forward to welcoming speakers and attendants for a great day of everything and anything Perl!
