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. Python San Sebastian is a community conference and we are eager to hear about your experience.
Please also forward this Call for Proposals to anyone that you feel may be interested.
Talk submission will be open until August 31nd.
Presenting at Python San Sebastian
We will accept a broad range of presentations, from reports on academic and commercial projects to tutorials and case studies. As long as the presentation is interesting and potentially useful to the Python community, it will be considered for inclusion in the program.
Can you show something new and useful? Can you show the attendees how to: use a module? Explore a Python language feature? Package an application? If so, please consider submitting a talk.
First time speakers are especially welcome.
There are four different kinds of contributions that you can present at Python San Sebastian:
Regular talk / 12 slots.
These are standard “talks with slides”, allocated in slots of 30 minutes 45 minutes 60 minutes
depending on your preference and scheduling constraints. A Q&A session is held at the end of the talk and included in the time slot.
Hands-on training / 4 slots.
These are advanced training sessions to dive into the subject with all details. These sessions are 2.5 - 3 hours long. The training attendees will be encouraged to bring a laptop. They should be prepared with less slides and more source code. Room capacity for the two trainings rooms is 70 and 180 seats.
Discounts for speakers and trainers
It is not possible to pay out rewards for talks, since almost half of the attendees give talks. For trainers we can give a 100% discount.
Topics and Goals
Suggested topics for Python San Sebastian presentations include, but are not limited to:
Core Python Alternative Python implementations: e.g. Jython, IronPython, PyPy, and Stackless Python libraries and extensions Python 2 to 3 migration Databases Documentation GUI Programming Game Programming Network Programming Open Source Python projects Packaging Issues Programming Tools Project Best Practices Embedding and Extending Education, Science and Math Web-based Systems
Presentation goals are usually some of the following:
Introduce the audience to a new topic Introduce the audience to new developments on a well-known topic Show the audience real-world usage scenarios for a specific topic (case study) Dig into advanced and relatively-unknown details on a topic Compare different solutions available on the market for a topic
Language for Talks & Trainings
Talks and training should, in general, be held in English. 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.
Inappropriate Language and Imagery
Please consider that Python San Sebastian is a conference with an audience from a broad geographical area. 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 Python San Sebastian Code of Conduct.
