  <center><b><font size=+2>mod_perl track's Call for Participation</font></b></center>
  <p><font size=-1>O'Reilly &amp; Associates is pleased to announce the 5th
  annual Perl Conference. This event is the central gathering place for the
  Perl community to exchange ideas, techniques, and to advance the language.
  The Perl Conference is a five-day event designed for Perl programmers and
  developers and technical staff involved in Perl technology and its applications.
  The conference will be held at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina,
  San Diego, California, July 23-27, 2001.</font>
  <p><font size=-1>The Perl Conference 5 includes two days of intensely focused
  tutorials aimed mainly at intermediate and advanced Perl programmers. These
  tutorials are designed to provide concrete knowledge that leads directly
  to better Perl programs. Three days of multi-tracked conference sessions
  focus on the cutting edge Perl technology and feature talks, demonstrations,
  and panel debates on topics ranging from object-orientation to data mining.</font>
  <p><font size=-1>Technically sophisticated individuals who are actively
  working with Perl technology make all tutorial and conference presentations.
  Presentations by marketing staff or with a marketing focus will not be
  accepted.</font><font size=-1></font>
