We have issued our Call For Proposals

Have you ever dreamed of speaking in front of a conference crowd?

Or of teaching a several-hour PyCon tutorial, that gives you the opportunity to lead an audience deep into the details of a technology so that they emerge with new and useful skills?

Or have you wanted the chance to present a poster, regaling passers-by with the details of your project while being able to answer their questions one-on-one instead of under time pressure in front of a big group?

Then know that the PyCon 2016 conference has issued its official Call For Proposals!

PyCon 2016 — Call For Proposals

Everyone, from veteran Python community members to newcomers who might never have attended a conference, is welcome to propose their idea for a talk, a tutorial, or a poster that will help share ideas, technologies, and experiences with the conference and the wider community.

Note that the tutorial deadline this year is earlier than the talk and poster deadline. Because tutorials are 4 to 6 times longer than a talk and are a more weighty investment for the conference, the instructor, and for the students — who pay individually to attend a tutorial — our tutorial deadline this year will end about a month before the talk deadline. This will permit the tutorial committee the time that they need to interact with their field of proposals, while giving normal talk and poster presenters an extra month in which to put together proposals that are as cutting-edge as possible in those cases where they involve current technology.

Links from the Call For Proposal page lead to the details of proposing talks, tutorials, and posters. Good luck as you conceive, write up, and propose your ideas, and please ask us any questions that you find we have left unanswered!

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.
