PyCon 2009 (US) - Call for proposals

Want to share your experience and expertise? PyCon 2009 is looking for proposals to fill the formal presentation tracks. The PyCon conference days will be March 27-29, 2009 in Chicago, Illinois, preceded by the tutorial days (March 25-26), and followed by four days of development sprints (March 30-April 2).

Previous PyCon conferences have had a broad range of presentations, from reports on academic and commercial projects to tutorials and case studies. We hope to continue that tradition this year.

Online proposal submission will open on September 29, 2008. Proposals will be accepted through November 03, with acceptance notifications coming out on December 15. For the full details, please see our detailed call for proposals.

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!

Pycon 2009 (US) – Call for Tutorials

The period for submitting tutorial proposals for Pycon 2009 (US) is now open
and will continue through Friday, October 31th. This year features two
"pre-conference" days devoted to tutorials on Wednesday March 25 & Thursday
March 26 in Chicago. This allows for more classes than ever.

Tutorials are 3-hours long on a specific topic of your choice. Last year we
featured classes on Learning Python, Web Development, Scientific Computing,
and many more. Class size varied from 10 to over 60 students. The extended
time spent in class allows teachers to cover a lot of material while
allowing for interaction with students.

The full Call for Tutorial Proposals, including submission details, an
example proposal as well as a template, is available at:
http://us.pycon.org/2009/tutorials/proposals/.


Tutorial selections will be announced in early December to give you time to
prepare your class.

PyCon will compensate instructors US$1,500 per tutorial.

If you have any questions, please contact pycon-tutorials at python.org.
