Registration and Financial Aid are now open!

PyCon’s Registration and Financial Aid forms are now open! Their soft launch a few days ago revealed a form formatting problem on some Firefox versions, but the issue is now resolved and registration should work for everyone. Key facts:

  • PyCon has sold out 4 times in a row.
  • We expect PyCon 2016 in Portland to sell out as well!
  • The first 800 tickets sell with an Early Bird discount, and go fast.
  • If you need financial support to be able to attend PyCon, apply for financial aid.
Here are the links:

Financial Aid (Deadline: 2016 March 1)

PyCon offers tremendous value for both individuals and businesses. PyCon’s three main conference days offer keynote speeches, nearly a hundred talks, Open Space rooms for meetings and workshops, and an Expo Hall where you can meet dozens of sponsor companies and open source non-profits. More than 3,000 fans and contributors to Python are expected to attend the conference!

Both breakfast and lunch are included in the price of registration, along with refreshment and coffee breaks.

The two days before the main conference are our Tutorial Days. Each day, both a morning and an afternoon slate of 3-hour tutorials is offered. Each tutorial costs only $150 to attend. (The schedule should be announced by the end of February, and tutorial registration will open up.)

Hotels

Available: right now, until rooms sell out!

PyCon 2016 in Portland is being held at the Oregon Convention Center, which is within walking distance of several hotels. And it is only a short ride away from several more, thanks to Portland’s MAX Light Rail.

We have negotiated special rates for PyCon attendees — but you must reserve your hotel through the PyCon web site to receive them! To see your options, scroll down to the “Hotels” section of our Venue page. After you have registered for PyCon, the registration page will offer you the ability to book a hotel room.

Financial Aid

Application: now open!
Deadline: 2016 March 1

PyCon is among the best values for a software conference of its size. Yet the cost of registration plus transportation plus lodging is still beyond the means of some attendees. The Python Software Foundation and PyLadies, thanks to our generous sponsors, are able to offer financial aid to help make PyCon possible for more members of the Python community. The application is already available, so go read about financial aid on our web site if you want to consider applying for assistance!

Call for Proposals

Application: now open!
Tutorial deadline: 30 November 2015
Talk and poster deadline: 3 January 2016

Our Call for Proposals is now open. As a community-driven conference, PyCon relies on you to step forward with the talk, tutorial, and poster proposals that will make the conference such a vibrant place to learn.

We need a wide array of talks so that everyone — beginner and expert, professional and hobbyist — can find something of interest in our schedule. We encourage both experienced speakers and those who are just getting started to submit a proposal if you have something you would like to share!

Note that the tutorial deadline is about one month earlier than the talk and poster deadline! Tutorial attendees make a bigger commitment — they pay for each tutorial separately, and spend 3 hours in each one — and so we give the tutorial committee extra time to vet their proposals and put together the best schedule possible.

Sponsoring PyCon

Application: now open!

The conference would not be possible without the help of our generous sponsors.

PyCon provides its sponsors with a unique chance to reach out to the Python community. In return, sponsors provide essential support without which our low prices and financial aid would not be possible. Read our sponsorship prospectus to learn more about how your company or non-profit can become a partner. Email us at pycon-sponsors@python.org if you have any questions.

We are excited about all of the attendees, speakers, and sponsors that are coming together to make Portland 2016 happen!

PyCon 2020-2021 Location

Now that registration and planning are well underway for PyCon 2019 in Cleveland, the PSF is pleased to announce that the home for PyCon 2020 and 2021 will be Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania!

The conference will be held in the beautiful David L. Lawrence Convention Center on April 15-23, 2020 and May 12-20, 2021.


The Steel City is built around the convergence of the Ohio, Allegheny, and Monongahela rivers and offers an understated mix of arts, culture, and technology. Join the Pittsburgh Python User Group for a meetup, eat dinner in a converted train station at the Grand Concourse, take a century-old cable car up the Duquesne Incline to see stunning views of the city, or visit the Robot Hall of Fame at the Carnegie Science Center's roboworld® exhibit. While you're out and about, see if you can count all 446 bridges in the city (that's more than you'll find in Venice, Italy)!

In Pittsburgh, you'll find that the residents are all neighbors. And with 90 unique neighborhoods tha…

An update regarding PyCon 2019 sponsor DataCamp

The PyCon staff is saddened to hear that one of our sponsors, DataCamp, had an incident where one of their employees was sexually harassed. We were also distressed to find it was unclear if Datacamp had addressed this incident with the seriousness it requires. PyCon and the Python Software Foundation take this issue seriously and we want to emphasize---for Datacamp and everyone---that such behavior is not tolerated at PyCon or any Python Software Foundation affiliated event.

The Python community must hold itself to a higher standard. We would like to reemphasize our values of inclusiveness and a willingness to act on behalf of the vulnerable members of our community as written in the Python Software Foundation code of conduct, and our guidelines, as written up in the PyCon code of conduct.

The Python Software Foundation Board, Python Software Foundation Executive Director, and myself have taken time to discuss the situation taking into account the concerns of our community, public discu…
