PyCon Australia 2012: Call for Proposals!

PyCon Australia 2012 is pleased to announce that its Call for Proposals is now open! The conference this year will be held on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 August 2012 in Hobart, Tasmania.
The deadline for proposal submission is Friday May 4, 2012, and more information can be found at
PyCon Australia attracts professional developers from all walks of life, including industry, government, and science, as well as enthusiast and student developers. We’re looking for proposals for presentations and tutorials on any aspect of Python programming, at all skill levels from novice to advanced.
Presentation subjects may range from reports on open source, academic or commercial projects; or even tutorials and case studies. If a presentation is interesting and useful to the Python community, it will be considered for inclusion in the program.
We're especially interested in short presentations that will teach conference-goers something new and useful. Can you show attendees how to use a module? Explore a Python language feature? Package an application?
We welcome first-time speakers; we are a community conference and we are eager to hear about your experience. If you have friends or colleagues who have something valuable to contribute, twist their arms to tell us about it! Please also forward this Call for Proposals to anyone that you feel may be interested.

See you in Hobart in August!
