PyCon APAC 2021

This year, instead of PyCon Thailand, we are organising PyCon APAC.

PyCon Thailand was a resounding success in 2018 and 2019. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, PyCon Thailand 2020 had to be cancelled, but with current technologies, video-based conference are possible.

We are, therefore, delighted to invite you to PyCon APAC 2021. The conference will be hybrid, with talk streamed and mostly locals attending the event in-person.

The conference will take place in Bangkok on November 20th and 21st 2021. The conference theme is: “Our Python. Our Future!” There will be 2 days of talks, as well as workshops set for November 18, 19 2021. There will also be a sprint on November 22 et 23. Since we are PyCon APAC and that many of the talks will be pre-recorded, we will accept talks in any language. An English translation will be provided. Speaker will have the option of having a live Q&A session after their talk.

Even though we will accept presentation in any language, proposal for talks made through this website shall be in English or Thai only so that our reviewers can understand them.

We need your proposals for talks or workshops to make this conference a success.

Please let us know if you want to apply to speak online (virtually) or offline (physically)


  • All online talks will be pre-recorded, optionally with live Q&A sessions.
  • We will endeavour to make offline talks possible, but should the situation prevent it, we will inform you well in advance and schedule your talk as a online one.
  • You may choose to present an online talk while still attending the conference in-person.
  • Do check our website regularly for updates on the situation

What Talk Types Are Needed?

Your talk should fit into a 30 to 45 minutes time slot, including time for questions at the end if you so choose. Please include as much detail about your talk as you can in the proposal. Reference to possible slides would be useful.

For workshops, we expect you to be able to lead Python attendees through a 1 hours or more workshop. Those attending will expect a hand on introduction to some new technologies, library or skill.

Proposal Selection Process

Selecting the proposals to include in the conference is complex, involving a selection committee, and several meetings. We take this process as seriously as we respect and value the effort that every submitter has made in preparing their proposal.

After you submit a proposal, we may reach out to you to request more information. In some cases, if we consider your proposal as outstanding, you might be accepted before the end of the submission period.

Once you have received the acceptance notification, you will need to confirm that you will attend the conference. After that you will have to buy a “Speaker Ticket” for the conference. Only then will your talk be considered for scheduling.

Since we are PyCon APAC, a number of talks will be selected by each PyCon organisers from APAC countries.

So, in short the process is

  • Submit a proposal
  • Dialogue with the reviewers (in certain cases )
  • If/When accepted, confirm
  • Buy your ticket
