EuroPython, PyCon AU open their Call for Proposals

Talk selections for PyCon 2013 were intense. We had a ton of submissions to wade through, and our three levels of review were jam packed with some really great proposals. Our expansion from 95 talks to 114 allowed us to take a few more that past years, but it couldn't include everyone.

Of the 458 proposals we received, the batch was so good that we could be running two or three PyCons in parallel if that was possible. The community put out their best work and made it really hard for us on the program committee. It was a great problem to have, and we hope to see all of these talks given in some way throughout the year.

As the conference season kicks off, consider proposing some of those awesome submissions to conferences around the world. Two CFPs were recently announced for summer conferences:

EuroPython is taking place in Florence, Italy from July 1st through the 7th, and their call was opened a few weeks ago. They'll be accepting proposals through March 5th at https://ep2013.europython.eu/call-for-proposals/.

PyCon Australia runs during the same period, with talks happening July 6th and 7th in Hobart, Tasmania. Their call opened today and runs through April 5th at http://2013.pycon-au.org/programme/call_for_proposals.

Keep an eye out for a conference near you. It's going to be a great year for events in the Python world.

PyCon AU's not so much a summer conference – July's the middle of our winter.

But don't let that discourage you! Hobart's lovely in July!
