Send the proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals are due by Friday, August 1st 2003, with a decision due two weeks later on August 15th 2003. (If the summertime vacation blahs catch everyone out we may extend the deadline. Don't count on that) This gives about 7 weeks, which is short but manageable, and should still fit within most college and university scheduling requirements.
You can get details on what YAPCs entail in both YAPC.pm, on CPAN, and at http://www.yapc.org/venue-reqs.txt. When making your proposal, in addition to venue information and dates, do please make sure to include details on airport locations, local public transit (as well as transit to the venue from the airport!), local cultural attractions, and accommodation information. (See the docs for more details) The more information you provide, within reason, the better.
With YAPC::NA::2003 over, it's time to get ready for YAPC::NA::2004, and that means it's time to throw open the call for venues for next year's YAPC.
