Call for Papers: Talks

The Call for Proposals will close on February 28, 2019, 23:59 CET.

Public information

The following information will be displayed publicly if your proposal is selected. We check and proofread everything before publishing but please make our volunteer jobs easier and make sure we don’t have much to do.

English is preferred, but if you feel uncomfortable with it, you can give your talk in Czech or Slovak
The shortest way to say what it will be about.
Try to write as if you’re talking to a real person.
Use plain text or Markdown.

You might want to follow these guidelines:
First introduce the problem your talk will bring a solution to.
Then explain why it’s a problem worth solving.
Use the last paragraph to tell your audience what is your approach to solving it.

If you are a speaker pair, write information about both of you in one field.

Use a name that you’re comfortable with, or a nickname.
Feel free to use Unicode characters.
Tell your audience in first person (e.g. „I write…“ not „Alex writes…“ ) about anything relevant about you, whether it’s your background, education, experience, current or former employer, hobbies or opensource software you maintain.
You can of course include anything fun or quirky about yourself.
If you don’t have a photo according to specs below, we will ask you for one if your talk is selected.
Ideal photo is:
– as large as possible (128 × 128 px, there is no upper limit, even 1000 × 1000 px isn’t too much),
– as uncompressed as possible (JPEGs are ok),
– doesn’t show other people
– is a head shot (not you in front of a pyramid)
– and has no “creative filters” applied.
We might crop it and change contrast, brightness etc. to fit PyCon CZ visual style.
Optional. The whole URL.

Private information

The following information will not be displayed publicly.

Covering travel or accommodation costs etc.
Please specify this here and now, otherwise we might not be able to grant you the aid.
Please state explicitly:
1) why you need it,
2) what for and
3) how much in EUR or CZK.
If you require aid for more items (accommodation, travel costs etc.) please state the amount for each item.

Please note that you won’t receive any copy of your proposal to your mailbox.
