PyCon DE 2012 - Call for Proposals for Talks and Tutorials

In Short
The second PyCon DE, October 29 - November 3, 2012 in Leipzig, Germany is inviting you to submit proposals for talks and tutorials.

Give a Talk
Talks should be, obviously, Python-related:

  • Python as a programming language (implementations, core development, Python 3)
  • Web applications with Python (frameworks, best practice, CMS)
  • Usage of Python in science, industry, finance, teaching, and system administration
  • Applications with Python (GUI, database, mobile, hardware control etc.)
  • Software development (testing, agile development, algorithms and datastructures, parallel programming, embedding etc.)
  • Tools (testing, deployment, IDEs, platforms such as GAE or EC2)
  • Python community (Open Source, marketing Python, community events etc.)
  • And more - If your topic does not fit in any of the above categories but it is Python-related, please don't hesitate to submit it.

Teach Something Interesting
Tutorials can be about any topic with (some) connection to Python you think people would find interesting enough to attend. A tutorial is a three-hour, hands-on, class-like unit. Instructors are expected to prepare handouts for the participants; either to be printed or distributed electronically as PDF. The participants will bring their laptops and will work along with the instructor for most of the tutorial. In general, tutorials should have short but useful exercises.

Not only German
The conference language will be German. However, talks and tutorials in English are also welcome. We only require German native speakers to stick to German.

Get Involved
Talks and tutorials are a very important part of a conference. Help to make this PyCon DE a great experience for everybody by submitting your proposal(s). We explicitly strive for a wide range of topics and presenter backgrounds. Therefore, super-advanced meta-programming topics and details of Python core development are as welcome as talks by Python novices about solving interesting problems with Python. You are not sure if your topic is appropriate? Just contact and ask us about it.

Hatchery Program Returns for 2019

PyCon is known around the world as the Python community’s premier event, attracting people from 39 countries. Outside of the main track of talks, PyCon is home to a growing number of events such as Young Coders, the Education Summit, Language Summit, Poster Session, and most recently the PyCon Charlas. The conference strives to be globally representative by promoting diversity and inclusion through these additional events and outreach programs. Our community works to approach these goals year on year. While we regularly receive requests to add events to PyCon, we have not had an established process for accepting and evaluating the community’s suggestions. By introducing the PyCon Hatchery Program in 2018, we took an initial step to introduce a long term process for evolving PyCon. What is our goal?We want to support our community and enable them to add events to PyCon that are important to our community. The long-term goals of this program are to support and grow sustainable programs th…

Pycon 2019 Call for Proposals is Open!

The time is upon us again! PyCon 2019’s Call for Proposals has officially opened for talks, tutorials, posters, education summit presentations, as well as the hatchery program PyCon Charlas. PyCon is made by you, so we need you to share what you’re working on, how you’re working on it, what you’ve learned, what you’re learning, and so much more.

Please make note of important deadlines for submissions:
Tutorial proposals are due November 26, 2018.Talk, Charlas, Poster, and Education Summit proposals are due January 3, 2019.
Who should write a proposal? Everyone! If you’re reading this post, you should write a proposal. PyCon is about uniting and building the Python community, and we won’t advance as an open community if we’re not open with each other about what we’ve learned throughout our time in it. It isn’t about being the smartest one in the room, so we don’t just pick all of the expert talks. It’s about helping everyone move together. “A rising tide lifts all boats,” if you will.

PyCon 2018 Code of Conduct Transparency Report

The PyCon Code of Conduct sets standards for how our community interacts with others during the conference. For 2018 the Code of Conduct underwent an extensive overhaul, our procedures for reporting and responding to incidents were improved, and our on-site methods were improved. You can read more about the updates for 2018 here. Cumulatively these changes were meant to improve the safety, welcoming nature, and overall inclusivity of PyCon. Based on initial responses, feedback, and incidents reported this year we feel that we made progress on those goals. A Code of Conduct without appropriate reporting and response procedures is difficult to enforce transparently, and furthermore a lack of transparency in the outcomes of Code of Conduct incidents leaves the community without knowledge of how or if the organizers worked to resolve incidents. With that in mind, we have prepared the following to help the community understand what kind of incidents we received reports about and how the PyCon…
