[Bioperl-announce-l] YAPC::NA & BioPerl

I'd like to run a BioPerl track at YAPC::NA 2012. Our theme this year is "Perl in the Wild", which is all about real-world applications of Perl. I can't imagine anything more real-world than what you folks do with Perl. 

If you are interested in giving a talk, you can submit one here: http://act.yapcna.org/2012/newtalk

If we get enough submissions, I'll set aside an entire room just for BioPerl talks. 

Likewise, if you want to run a mini-workshop to get people bootstrapped on BioPerl, I'd love to have that as well. I just need someone to submit that as a talk. We have our workshops limited to 2 hours, but if you need more time than that, you can submit multiple sessions and I'll schedule them back to back. 

If there's anything else I can do to make YAPC::NA 2012 a good destination for BioPerl, please let me know.

For those of you who don't know, YAPC::NA 2012 will be held June 13-15 in Madison, WI. Madison is a big BioTech town, so I'm sure many of you are familiar with it, and even have colleagues who work here.
