The Perl Conference in Salt Lake City Call for Participation is now open! The CFP closes March 18, 2018 11:59:59 PM PT, and speakers will be notified by April 1, 2018. That's no joke!

The Perl Conference in Salt Lake City takes place June 17-22 at the Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah.

All selected speakers will receive a free ticket to the event. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide additional reimbursement for travel, lodging, or meals.

Choosing talks is part art, part science; here are some factors we consider when trying to assemble the best possible program for our local audience:

** Broad appeal ** How will your talk play out in a room of people with a variety of backgrounds? Technical deep dives need more levels to provide value for the whole room, some of whom might not use your specific tool.

** New presenters ** You are the only one who can tell your story. We are very interested in the challenges and successes being experienced in our local area. We are happy to provide guidance/coaching for new speakers upon request.

** Under-represented voices ** We want to hear all voices, including those that may speak less frequently at similar events. Whether you're in a field not typically thought of as a technology field, you're in a large, traditional organization, or you're the only person at your organization with your background, we are interested in your unique experience.

** Original content **

** No third-party submissions ** If a PR firm or your marketing department is proposing the talk, you've already shown that as a speaker you're distant from the process. This is a small community-driven event, and speakers need to be directly engaged with the organizers and attendees.

** No vendor pitches ** As much as we value vendors and sponsors, we are not going to accept a talk that appears to be a pitch for your product
.
Key components for the evaluation process:
* Interesting and catchy title
* Clarity of thought and presentation
* Fresh, current, unique perspectives

When evaluating a proposal we are also looking at (Make sure your proposal answers these questions!):
* Who is this for?
* What will they learn?
* Why does it matter?

Key Dates
* March 18 - CFP closes
* April 1 - Confirmation of speaker selection
* April 14 - Announcement of Schedule
* June 17-22 The Perl Conference
