} Overview
} The second annual O'Reilly Perl Conference will be held August
} 17-20, 1998 at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, California? The
} conference will feature two days of tutorials followed by a two
} day conference.? The conference will include sessions for
} submitted papers on practical and experimental uses of Perl;
} invited? presentations; daily? Q and A sessions with leading
} Perl developers and trainers; a by-invitation Developers
} Workshop; and nightly user-organized Birds-of-a-Feather sessions
} for special interest groups.
}
} Practical Presentations?
} In the practical spirit of Perl, we seek papers that describe
} how you are using Perl right now for work or play, and how your
} experience and your code can help others. This is not a
} traditional solicitation for academic papers.? While we look
} forward to papers on new and useful extensions, applications,
} and tools, we are most interested in receiving papers that show
} Perl hard at work, saving time, money, and headaches for you and
} your organization.? We welcome submissions that work under both
} Unix and non-Unix systems, such as Win32.
}
} Subjects on which we invite papers include but are not limited to:
}
} * Automation of core operations of an organization
} * Creation of dynamic content on the world wide web, and
} ?? administration of web servers
} * Database maintenance, usage, and customized reporting
} * Integration of -- 'glue' for -- incompatible systems
} * Administration of large networks (100+ computers)
} * Development of large projects in Perl: practical experience
} ?? with specific practices and coding standards
} * Support of software development in other languages
} * Security and cryptography
} * Games and diversions
} * Financial applications
} * Scientific programming
} * Graphics
} What, How, and Where to Submit
} Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts (3-5 pages or
} 1500-2500 words) of their work, not including optional figures,
} references, and code samples. If you choose to send a full paper
} (not to exceed 20 pages), you must still send an extended
} abstract.? All submissions are held in the highest
} confidentiality as a matter of policy.

} freely redistributable source code are very strongly preferred.?
