PyCon CZ 2017 – Call for Papers

Submit your talk Submit your workshop

PyCon CZ (Czech Republic) 2017 is pleased to announce that its Call for Proposals is now open! The conference this year will be held from Friday 9th June to Sunday 11th June. The main conference is held on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th. Sunday 11th are developer sprints and workshops.

Important Dates

PyCon CZ attracts professional developers, test engineers and localization and documentation specialists from all walks of life, including industry, government, and science, as well as enthusiast and students. We’re looking for proposals for presentations and workshops on any aspect of Python programming, at all skill levels from novice to advanced. For your inspiration, our local Python Community has suggested they’d love to see talks on the following topics, for example:

Testing, AsyncIO, REST, Interoperability, Python vs. JavaScript, IoT, Mobile, Community, Data Processing, Bioinformatics, Science, Arts, OpenData and OpenGov, APIs

Presentation subjects may range from reports on open source, academic or commercial projects; or even tutorials and case studies. If a presentation is interesting and useful to the Python community, it will be considered for inclusion in the program. We're especially interested in short presentations that will teach conference-goers something new and useful. Can you show attendees how to use a module? Explore a Python language feature? Package an application? Do you have inspiring lesson’s learned to share?

First Time Speakers

We welcome first-time speakers; we are a community conference and we are eager to hear about your experience. If you have friends or colleagues who have something valuable to contribute, twist their arms to tell us about it! Please also forward this Call for Proposals to anyone that you feel may be interested.

Speaker Benefits

All speakers will receive ONE free conference ticket automatically. As a speaker, if you or your organisation can afford to register and purchase a ticket anyway at full price, please do! All such payments will go directly towards our financial assistance pool to help people who could not otherwise afford to attend the conference.

You will not be automatically registered as an attendee for the conference; you will need to register yourself and failure to do so may result in loss of your talk slot(s)!

Financial Assistance

PyCon CZ offers a generous financial assistance programme, so that some attendees and speakers have some -- or in rare cases, all -- of their expenses such as flight, hotel and admission provided to them from the conference budget.

PyCon CZ strongly encourages those people in need to apply for financial assistance -- even if we can’t cover all of your expenses, we will try our best to at least give you discounted admission! The application process is simple, and straightforward. It’s also very liberal. Apply for a grant on the Financial Assistance page.

Suggested Topics

Suitable topics for PyCon CZ presentations include, but are not limited to:

Talk Format

The preferred length for talks is 30 minutes. We also accept extended proposals for tutorials and workshops of 90 minutes or three hours. However, if you need something special, don’t hesitate to ask! We’ll do what we can to accommodate.

Session lengths include time for audience questions. You should budget at least five minutes for questions; for example, a 30-minute talk could comprise 25 minutes of presentation and 5 minutes of questions.

Presentation Recording

Every session at PyCon CZ will have professionally-produced video recordings for release to our media channels. If you do not wish to have your talk recorded then please note this in your submission. Doing so will not influence the selection process in any way. You have the option to change your mind at any time.

Use the Proposal Submission form to send us your proposals. You are welcome to submit multiple proposals.
