Calling all Pythonistas! Come present your talk this November at the 5th annual PyCon Canada in beautiful Montréal, Québec! Whether you’ve been using Python for years, or whether you are just starting out, we would love to have you join us.
- Conference: November 18-19, 2017
- Sprints: November 20-21, 2017
The main conference will be held in Montréal, Québec, Canada at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). Sprints location to be announced.
PyCon Canada features talks related to all things Python. Whether you’d like to give a quick talk about a neat hack made possible using Python, or lead a deep dive session into the latest library or framework, we would love to hear what you have to say. If you’ve never spoken at a technical conference before, we would doubly encourage you to submit a proposal because we love giving the floor to first-time speakers.
Talks can either be 10 minutes or 30 minutes in length. Moderated Q&A is optional, but will have to be included in the designated time limit. We also offer 60 minute tutorial slots in a classroom setting for a more hands-on educational experience.
What to submit
Please include the following in your proposal submission:
- Talk or tutorial? If talk, 10 or 30 minutes?
- Language: English or Français
- Talk abstract (max 1-3 sentences)
- Longer description (provide more detail and background for your talk, including what you plan on covering and whether you have presented this material elsewhere before)
- Speaker bio (tell us a little bit about yourself!)
If your talk is accepted, we will be publishing parts of your proposal on our website. Don’t worry, you’ll have a chance to make changes before it goes live! If you’d like to share details privately with the programme committee which will never appear anywhere publicly, please use the “Notes” section of the proposal form.
Please be aware that talks will be recorded and posted to our YouTube channel. If you would prefer to opt out of this, please let us know.
