Yup! Time is running out for PyCon 2012 talk and tutorial submissions. The call for proposals ends in 4 days!
The good news is that if it is Oct 12th anywhere in the world, you will still be able to submit proposals to the system - but you shouldn't wait until the last minute to get your proposal in.
Proposals can be in rough draft form - the program committee can, and will help you refine and improve your submission as needed. This includes talks and tutorials. Remember - accepted talk and tutorial speakers/instructors do get guaranteed registration - we've set a hard cap on registrations of 1500 attendees again this year, and by all estimations we're going to hit that cap very quickly!
If you need help thinking of ideas - check out our posts on Posters, Talks, and Tutorial ideas - there's also a post about reaching out to people you'd love to have speak at the conference. There's also the #pycontalksiwant search on twitter.
We're looking forward to seeing all of you in Santa Clara. It's going to be a great year!
