Registration is open from January 2002
Conference fee is set at 89 Euros.

Special Accommodation Notice
Because the number of participants is limited to 500, (and particularly because the oktoberfest has been planned to take place directly after our conference), this time of year in munich is expected to be quite busy, therefore early booking for both conference but particularly for accommodation is advisable.

YAPC is an inexpensive 3-day grassroots perl conference, where users, and developers, can mingle, listen, talk, and exchange ideas about the perl programming language. This year's conference will be held in Munich, capital city of Bavaria, (as near to the continental centre of Europe as you can get, without spotting the sea), Germany.

There will be a mixture of short and long tutorials and talks, covering a wide variety of subjects. This year's theme is 'The Science of Perl', which means that we talk about science as well as everything else :-)

A huge variety of speakers and subjects on our favourite language is gathering in Munich in 2002: The author of perl, Larry Wall, is slated to attend his first European YAPC, Damian Conway, perl evangelist and speaker par-excellence, will also be participating, among many others.

Call for Papers has been sent out and is available from the web site.

We look forward to seeing you there too!

    Are there any monks from Vancouver, BC, Canada who are planning on taking part in this?

    I envy the lucky perl monks who live in Europe and would be able to attend ;-). It's a bit tough (financially-wise as well as logistically) for a Canadian westener to get to europe.

    I guess summary of the talks etc. will be placed on the website? I'm also wondering if we are going to dedicate a few nodes to this?

      From last years conference to this - I guess we'll handle things the same, so

      The topics of the talks will be on and linked with the speaker's notes, as most speakers have / will put up their material on their own websites.

      As last year attending monks will put up information here as well as having a Conference Journal at

      So all of those staying at home are likely to have a good chance to keep up with the conference.
