Call for Participation

A few thoughts

At PyDays Vienna we all share a common passion and enthusiasm for the Python programming language and are looking forward to talks covering diverse levels of difficulty and fields of applications.

Whether you use Python for automation, web development, or (data) science, whether you are a hobbyist programmer writing scripts for yourself, or a professional crafting software, you are a potential speaker.

Submissions from first time speakers will be given prevalence in the selection procedure. If you are a first time speaker, we are happy to offer counsel by means of a mentorship. Just write to [email protected] and let us know.

Non-Python and non-technical talks are equally welcome.


Together with Linuxwochen Wien we are currently working on a small Educational Track (Teaching, Computational Thinking, etc.). If you are interested in this topic, please use below submission link or get in touch with Olga.

Ready to submit your talk or workshop?

Please go to here (you need to register an account first, then “Submit a new event”). The call will remain open until the 21st of March 2018.


Notes
  • Language: Contributions may be in English or German; if possible German talks will take place on Friday.

  • Duration: Talks should, for the most part, take 20 minutes (30 minute slots), 45 minutes talks (60 minute slots) are, however, available for topics benefiting from a more extensive treatment. Please leave you opinion note in the submission comment field.

  • Workshops: Longer, interactive workshops for tutorials or class-room like experiences are also very welcome.

  • Review: All proposals will be carefully reviewed and considered; we aim to publish a preliminary schedule by the beginning of April.

  • Advertisements/Sponsoring: When presenting how you use Python at work or for your own product/service, it is of course interesting to know and relevant to provide some contextual information. If your employer allowed you to prepare your talk in your work time, you may, for example, put a small logo on your slides as acknowledgement. However, everything beyond that, like advertisements or job announcements, are only allowed in sponsored talks. If you would like to use your talk to promote your business, get in touch with us by writing to [email protected] to discuss sponsoring options.

  • Pictures: During the talks, pictures will be taken and made public. If you do not want to be photographed, let us know.

  • Slides: Please make your slides available to the attendees by posting a link or uploading the file(s) to your profile. Our goal is to share knowledge and your contributions are vital to that. Since slides are published, do not use material that is protected by copyright.
