EuroPython 2016 Calls for Proposals

Lena Hagen

Marketing, PR and Social Media Manager

Organizers of the biggest 2016 European Python event announced a call for proposals and early bird tickets sale.

EuroPython 2016 blog informs:

'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.'

Formats of Contribution

There are different kinds of contributions that you can present at EuroPython:

Regular Talk / approx. 150 slots: standard “talks with slides”, allocated in slots of 30, 45 or 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.

Trainings / 20 slots: deep-dive into a subject with all details. These sessions are 2.5 - 3.5 hours long. The training attendees will be encouraged to bring a laptop. They should be prepared with less slides and more source code.

Panels / NEW in 2016: group of three to six experts plus a moderator discussing a matter in depth, an intensive exchange of (maybe opposite) opinions. A panel may be 60-90 minutes long.


Interactive / NEW in 2016: completely open 60-minute format. There are only two rules: it must be interactive, real-time human-to-human-interaction and of course compliant with the EuroPython Code of Conduct.

Posters / approx. 30 slots: graphical way to describe a project or a technology, printed in large formats; posters are exhibited at the conference, can be read at any time by participants, and can be discussed face to face with their authors during the poster session.

Helpdesk / 10 slots: a great way to share your experience on a technology, by offering to help people answering their questions and solving their practical problems. You can run a helpdesk by yourself or with colleagues and friends. Each helpdesk will be open for 3 hours in total, 1.5 hours in the morning and 1.5 hours in the afternoon. People looking for help will sign up for a 30 minute slot and talk to you.

Web Track
