The deadline for PyCon poster proposals is coming up soon - November 30!
Poster Sessions are a new PyCon feature for 2010. Poster sessions provide an alternative presentation mechanism that facilitates more one-on-one communication between the presenter and the audience. Poster sessions are particularly suited for topics of interest to a subset of the community, and we anticipate these sessions will provide an "incubator" for further discussions.
More information about the what, how, when, and why of poster sessions is at http://us.pycon.org/2010/conference/posters/cfp/.
