Talk, Poster, Education Summit proposals due January 3rd — but feel free to submit them now!

With the holidays nearly here, this is the moment to ask yourself: are you really — when you return groggily to work on Tuesday January 3rd following the “New Year’s (Observed)” holiday on Monday — going to remember to write and submit your Talk, Poster, and Education Summit proposals for PyCon 2017?

Waiting until the last minute is very tempting. After all, the whole reason that we worked with the Talk and Poster committees to move the deadline as close to PyCon as we dared was to let you submit as current and as up-to-date a proposal as possible.

But — are you sure that you want to risk starting your first work day of the New Year (if your schedule even puts you back at work by the 3rd!) with a conference deadline looming only hours later?

I myself am adopting a safer approach this year: I will be going ahead and submitting all of my proposals this week, ahead of the holidays. Then, if I do remember the deadline, I can always log into the PyCon web site on January 3rd and use the “Edit” button to make all of the last-minute revisions that I want. But if I forget? Then at least an early version of each proposal will be in the system and can be considered by the Program Committee!

As was true last year, our schedule is designed to allow Financial Assistance submissions to include any Talk, Tutorial, Poster, or Education Summit proposals that you get accepted:

  • January 3 — Talk, Poster, and Education Summit proposals due, as long as it is January 3rd Anywhere on Earth (AoE).
  • February 1–12 — Talks, Tutorials, Posters, and Education Summit schedules announced.
  • February 15 — Financial Assistance applications due.
  • March 3 — Financial Assistance grants awarded.
  • March 30 — Your deadline to respond to offer of Financial Assistance.

One final note: more than 90% of our Early Bird tickets are now gone, with only a few dozen remaining. If you have hoped to purchase your Student, Individual, or Corporate ticket at our discounted rate, then your time is almost up — register as soon as you can, and we look forward to seeing you in Portland in May 2017!

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…
