PyCon AU 2017 call for proposals now open

Welcome all — coders, tinkerers, contributors, presenters, thinkers, teachers and artists… PyCon Australia Melbourne 2017

PyCon AU 2017 organisers are calling for proposals from anyone in the Python community. That means everyone — first-time presenters, novices, long-time users, boffins, gurus and fans. Speaking at PyCon AU is a great experience, and prioritise having a broad cross-section of both presenters and topics. Speakers come from a diverse range of ages, backgrounds, technical knowledge and experience. The topics covered are similarly broad, including different technical areas, topics of general community interest, education, introductory material and specialised areas such as data science and machine learning.

This call for proposals covers the conference main track and the four tracks of the special event day. You can nominate to be included in the main track, one or more of our special events, or a combination! Allowing us to place your talk in any track will give the greatest likelihood of your talk being accepted and also helps us design the best possible program schedule.

They are accepting 30 minute talks, and a limited number of 70 minute extended talks.

The Science and Data Special Event (Friday 4th August 2017) may be of particular interest to COMBINE followers!

  • Proposal submission deadline: Sunday, 7th May 2017
  • Notification of whether proposals have been accepted, not accepted, or waitlisted: Sunday, 28th May 2017
