Promote OOPSLA Contest

The contest is now over

Thank you everyone for participating. We had quite a few people competing and it was a close race.

Congratulations to Pavel Hruby, our winner.

Refer people to OOPSLA and WIN!

Have you ever wondered if the committee members stay in rooms different from yours? Well, in some cases, you would be right. The winner of the Promote OOPSLA contest gets to stay in the suite reserved this year for the Chair of the Program Committee, Richard P. Gabriel. And Dick will be staying in a regular room instead.

All you need to do to win is be the person with the most referrals before September 15th. To enter the contest simply place a link on your web page to the OOPSLA home page, with "referrer=name@example.com" added to the URL. (Use your email address in place of "name@example.com")

Here's a sample of the HTML with the referrer information added:
<A href="http://www.oopsla.org:8080/2005/ShowPage.do?id=Home&referrer=name@example.com" title="OOPSLA'05" > <IMG src="http://www.oopsla.org/2005/images/logo.jpg"border="1" /> </A>

...which looks like this to the person reading your site:

An alternative approach some contestants are using is an inline frame. Every visitor to a page with an inline frame pointing to the OOPSLA website will be counted.

Here's a sample of the HTML:
<iframe src="http://www.oopsla.org:8080/2005/ShowPage.do?id=Home&referrer=name@example.com" width="800" height="250"> <!-- Alternate content for non-supporting browsers --> <a href="http://www.oopsla.org:8080/2005/ShowPage.do?id=Home&referrer=name@example.com"><img src="http://www.oopsla.org/2005/images/logo.jpg" border="1" vspace="10"/></a> </iframe>

Or, you could use the link alone in your email signature:

Only one referral per person per day per IP address will be counted. The winner will be announced on Friday, September 16th, 2005. If the winner has already reserved a room for the week then OOPSLA will cover their hotel room costs instead. You must be registered for the conference to win.
