PyCon 2013: Registration and Financial Aid application are live!

The PyCon team is happy to announce that registration for the March 2013 conference have opened at https://us.pycon.org/2013/registration/ - note however, there have been some changes this year.

Early bird rates are available for the first 1000 registrations, which is a departure from previous time-based systems. With PyCon 2012 having been a quick sell out, we’re expecting this one to be the same. Keep in mind that attendance is strictly limited to 2500 attendees. We recommend not waiting.

Individual and corporate ticket prices remain the same as they have been for the last few years, with early bird rates of $300 and $450 respectively. The regular rates of $350 and $600 for individual and corporate are still an incredible deal. Sponsorship of PyCon includes conference passes - and in many cases those passes pay for the sponsorship itself!

For 2013 we’ve reduced the cost to students by 50%, bringing the early bird rate to $100 with a regular rate of $125.

Providing a more affordable conference experience for students is a priority for the organizers and the Python Software Foundation, and we’re hoping the decrease helps bring more of them to the conference.

We’ve also increased our financial aid program, and hope to assist more attendees for PyCon 2013! You can apply for financial aid through the new consolidated form.

We've already announced the awesome line up of Keynote speakers and a free workshop for our budding Pythonistas. Registration for the PyCon 2013 Fun Run is also open - and all proceeds from the Fun Run will go to the John Hunter Memorial Fund and American Cancer Society.

Note: We’re still accepting proposals for talks and tutorials, with a deadline of September 28 (9 days from now!). Poster proposals are accepted through January 15, 2013. For more information, see https://us.pycon.org/2013/speaking/cfp/.

If your company is interested in sponsorship, we need you. Sponsors are what make PyCon a possibility, and sponsorship offers some great values to the generous organizations who support the conference. Check out https://us.pycon.org/2013/sponsors/whysponsor/ to find out what you get out of sponsorship, with a prospectus at https://us.pycon.org/2013/sponsors/prospectus/. Contact Jesse Noller with any sponsorship inquiries.

The Financial Aid Application has a section for entering Tutorials but I don't think the Tutorials have been posted anywhere. What should an applicant do?

So, I'm a poor student. For me, attending the conference is contingent upon receiving some sort of financial aid. If I get help with the plane ticket, I can pay for my PyCon ticket, but if not, I won't be able to make the trip. I already filled out the form and all.

But how should I go about purchasing tickets? If I buy my PyCon ticket now, I will be stuck with it if it turns out I don't get aid, but if I wait to buy my ticket until I hear back on my application, tickets will be full price, or worse, gone.

Ryan,

Please hold off on purchasing tickets. All those whom fill out a financial aid request have a guaranteed registration spot held for them, with at most the early reg price. I say at most as you could end up with a free registration.
