We want to send a special thank you to the committees that volunteered their time for the CFP and review process! Their commitment to managing the process of preparing for CFPs to launch and managing the review process has spanned over many months and hours of time.  We truly could not have accomplished the final result of launching the schedule today without each of them.

T-shirt Ordering is Back Online

Thank you for the quick notification from our community questioning the shipping prices. We quickly contacted the supplier to question the pricing and they did identify a bug in the ordering site that affected the calculations of shipping.  This error was corrected and the ordering site is back online. The t-shirt store can be accessed from your dashboard after you register for the event. All those who placed orders have been contacted and informed of the error and the process to correct the shipping rate errors.  We appreciate your understanding as we worked through this. We wish to be seeing you all in person so your t-shirts can be personally handed to you, but unfortunately this year we are unable to. Providing a conference t-shirt was always an important take away and memory from the conference and we did not want this year to be different. This required us to work with a vendor instead of handling shirts ourselves like we have in the past.  Shipping internationally is quite expe

PyCon Us 2021 Call for Proposals is Open!

PyCon US 2021’s Call for Proposals has officially opened for talks, tutorials, posters, and charlas.  With the decision to hold PyCon US 2021 virtually, we now know that it will be quite a bit different. The plan is to provide a platform for community members to share their knowledge with those attending the event.  During this unique year we will be asking presenters to pre-record their session and be available online during their sessions to engage with the attendees via chat. This will eliminate the challenges of internet quality, timezones, and logistics of providing a full schedule over multiple days.   Please make note of the important deadline for submissions: All proposals are due February 12, 2021 We need beginner, intermediate, and advanced proposals on all sorts of topics as well as beginner, intermediate, and advanced speakers to present talks. You don’t need to be a veteran who has spoken at dozens of conferences. Our community has diverse skills and we want PyCon US’s s

Announcing the Location for PyCon US 2022/2023

We’re planning for PyCon US 2022 and 2023 to be held in-person. It may seem strange to announce an in-person conference in the middle of a global pandemic, so let’s start by explaining why: Usually, we announce PyCon US host cities shortly after we’ve made our selection, and this year we hoped to make this announcement during the close of PyCon US 2020 in Pittsburgh. Instead, the immediate future of PyCon changed. We quickly cancelled the in-person portion of PyCon US 2020, and moved PyCon US 2021 to a fully-online event. None of this changed our plans for 2022, because we made these plans in 2019. We seek out host cities many years in advance of PyCon US so that we can find space to hold a 10-day event with 3500 attendees on dates that do not clash with major holidays and religious observances. We found our host city, and signed contracts and paid deposits with venues, caterers, hotels, and other vendors in Q3 2019, months before the Pandemic had started. Those contracts ar
