[The Perl and Raku Conference in the Cloud 2021](https://perlconference.us/tprc-2021-cloud/) celebrates all things Perl and Raku from 8-10 June with group meetings (BOFs) on the Monday and Friday each side of the main event.
We want to hear from you! We know that there are hundreds of people in our community with great things to share about Perl and Raku, database integration, drones, puppies, and any other topics that may be of general interest to Perl and Raku programmers. Take a look at the talk schedules from [previous years](https://perlconference.us/tprc-2021-cloud/past-conferences/) to help with additional ideas.
The call for papers is open NOW. You can submit your ideas for a talk to http://perlconference.us/speakers. Deadline for submissions is 18:00 UTC April 30, 2021. **All speakers receive a FREE event pass.**
We will be accepting proposals for the following session types:
* Standard Talks (50 minutes)
* Short Talks (20 minutes)
* Lightning Talks (5 minutes)
