We're looking for proposals on every aspect of Python: programming from novice to advanced levels, applications and frameworks, or how you have been involved in introducing Python into your organization. EuroPython is a community conference and we are eager to hear about your experience.
Please also forward this Hot Topics Call for Proposals to anyone that you feel may be interested.
This call is reserved for:
Some suggestions for topics:
Since we still have a few slots left, we are also looking for more posters and help desks - these are not limited to hot topics.
The program work group will select the most exciting and intriguing submissions. There is not user voting for this call. We plan to notify the winners by June 17th 2016.
Planning a big conference is a challenge: On one hand people like to know what will be on our talk schedule to make up their mind and make travel arrangements early. On the other hand technology is progressing at the speed of light these days. We have given this some thought and decided to make another extra Call for Proposals just weeks before the conference.
Since EuroPython is a not-for-profit community conference, it is not possible to pay out rewards for talks or trainings. For talks, posters and help desks, we will give out a 25% discount coupon valid for one conference ticket.
Please note that we only give out one coupon per speaker, even if a speaker in some cases gives more than one talk. Likewise, we can also only give out one coupon per talk, even the talk is given by more than one speaker.
Talks and training should, in general, be held in English.
However, since EuroPython is hosted in Bilbao and EuroPython has traditionally always been very open to the local Python communities, we are also accepting a number of talks and trainings in Spanish and Basque.
The talk submission form lets you choose the language you want to give the talk in.
If you speak Basque/Spanish and don't feel comfortable speaking English, please submit the talk title and abstract directly in Spanish/Basque. If you are able to give the talk in multiple languages, please submit one proposals for the talk in each language, with title and description adjusted accordingly. Please note that tags are only available in English.
Please consider that EuroPython is a conference with an audience from a broad geographical area which spans countries and regions with vastly different cultures. What might be considered a "funny, inoffensive joke" in a region might be really offensive (if not even unlawful) in another. If you want to add humor, references and images to your talk, avoid any choice that might be offensive to a group which is different from yours, and pay attention to our EuroPython Code of Conduct.
All submissions will be made public during the community talk voting, to allow all registrants to discuss the proposals. After finalizing the schedule, talks that are not accepted will be removed from the public website. Accepted submissions will stay online for the foreseeable future.
We also ask all speakers/trainers to:
accept the video recording of their presentation
upload their talk materials to the EuroPython website
accept the EuroPython Speaker Release Agreement which allows the EPS to make the talk recordings and uploaded materials available under a CC BY-NC-SA license
To simplify the organization, we ask all speakers and trainers to accept the video recording and publishing of their session. All talks will be recorded. Whether trainings will be recorded as well, is not yet clear. Please contact our Program WG Helpdesk for details, if you would rather not like your training to be recorded.
