You can watch the YAPC.org home page for any more info or changes.
Send the proposals to yapc-venues AT yetanother DOT org. Proposals are due by Friday, August 31 2004, with a decision due on September 15 2004. (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.
This year we are also making available the different categories, and weight for those categories, for prospective proposers. Please visit http://yapc.org/yapc-crit.txt for more information on this.
You can get details on what YAPCs entail 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.
It's time to throw open the call for venues for next year's YAPC::NA.
