# The Perl and Raku Conference 2023
The Perl and Raku Foundation is delighted to announce that the annual **North American Perl and Raku Conference** will be held in **Toronto, Canada on July 11 to 13, 2023**. The venue will be the [DoubleTree (a Hilton Hotels property), located at 108 Chestnut St in downtown Toronto](https://tprc.to/location). That's directly North from Toronto's city hall, close to public transit and one of the country's biggest malls, the Toronto Eaton Centre.
Toronto is Canada's largest city, and the city and surrounding area offers many attractions for a vacation before or after your conference attendance. For our American visitors: you're in luck, three of your dollars are about the same as four of ours.
Call For Papers is now open! You can submit your talk Ideas at https://tprc.to/papers. Talk submission deadline is **March 31 Midnight UTC.** Talks must be given live and in-person. If you are looking for any talk ideas, try out the [conference wiki](https://github.com/perlconference/tprc-2023-tor/wiki/Topics-we-want).
Early bird pricing is available. Purchase your ticket now through April 15th for the low price of $275 USD. You can purchase your tickets now at https://tprc2023.sched.com/tickets.
Visit our website at https://tprc.to/. Information on special hotel rates can be found at https://tprc.to/location/. We've managed to arrange for a really great room rate for the conference days, and there are a few rooms for before and after the conference, in case you'd like to stay longer for a little vacation.
If you are flying, you can book your tickets to YYZ (Pearson, the main airport; many public and private transit options) or YTZ (Billy Bishop, on Toronto Island; 5 minute cab ride); you can also fly into BUF (Buffalo, NY) and drive (2 hours by car) across the border. Just remember to bring your passport.
# Unique to this year / Be Advised
* The CFP closes in only 30 days!
* The hotel has fewer rooms than prior years, and our price is half of what you can find anywhere close-by. Book your room early!
* The hotel’s rooms are almost all King rooms. Contact the hotel directly, and pay an extra $30CAD if you want a room with two Queen beds!
