PyTexas 2011 Call For Proposals

Monday, May 30, 2011
PyTexas 2011, the fourth annual Python programming conference for Texas and the surrounding region, will take place Saturday September 10 and Sunday September 11, 2011 at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.

Last year with 94 attendees, PyTexas 2010 reached critical mass to achieve an exciting event akin to a small taste of PyCon, and this year we're want to further boost participation and sponsor support. In order to succeed, we need you to step forward and commit to giving a presentation, a tutorial, or perhaps organize a panel discussion...go ahead and propose your idea, whether serious or silly, we want to consider it.

Standard presentation slots will be 40 minutes plus a 10 minute question-and-answer period.

We are also looking for proposals for keynote speakers, and are working toward obtaining sponsor pledges to bring in funding to pay travel expenses for speakers willing to travel. If you are outside the Texas area, and want to give a presentation, please contact BradAllen to discuss reimbursement options.

PyTexas is especially interested in hosting a Beginner's Track for those new to Python. If your proposal would be suitable for inclusion in a Beginner's Track, please indicate so. Organizers will work with speakers and instructors in the Beginner's Track to help them coordinate their talks/tutorials into a  coherent learning curve for new Python users.

If you want to give a talk, and but need help coming up with ideas ideas, check out TalkIdeas on the PyTexas wiki.

To ensure that you provide all necessary information, please download and fill out the proposal submission template. If organizing a panel, please confirm all panelists' intention to participate before submitting your proposal.

PyTexas may record presentations for later release over the web. Presenters will need to sign a release of recording rights to PyTexas.

All proposals should be emailed to Brad Allen. Please submit proposals by end of day (23:59 CST) July 16, 2011. Accepted speakers will be notified by August 1.

If you have questions about proposals, please contact Brad Allen.  If you'd like to engage in discussion with the organizers, please join the Texas Python mailing list.
