PyCon India - Call For Proposals

The 10th edition of PyCon India, the annual Python programming conference for India, will take place at Hyderabad International Convention Centre, Hyderabad during October 5 - 9, 2018.

PyCon India invites all interested people to submit proposals for scheduled talks and tutorials. All topics of interest to the Python community will be considered. Standard presentation talk slots will be 30 minutes. Tutorial slots will be two and half hours long.

Schedule

  • October 5: Tutorials
  • October 6-7: Talks
  • October 8-9: Dev Sprints

Who Should Submit a Proposal?

You. Your friends. Your friends' friends. Anyone with any level of Python knowledge is a candidate for a great topic at this conference. As we get attendees of all kinds, we need speakers of all kinds. In all ways and manners, we try to assemble the most diverse conference we can, and we do that with your help.

Whether you got started with Python last month or you've been around for 20 years, we think you've got something to share. The Python community is stronger than ever and we're still reaching new areas, new industries, and new users. Be a part of growing Python by helping us change the future.

In particular, we welcome submissions from people that have never done a talk before! And if you want help preparing a talk, let us know! Volunteers are eager to help new people with talks.

How to write a proposal

If you have an idea (or don’t!) and want to speak, here’s a very rough process of what you should do next:

  • Brainstorm or mind map to expand upon your ideas or knowledge in search of a general topic
  • Write a paragraph or two, or some bullet points, to outline the core concepts you want to communicate and what people might learn from your talk
  • Get someone you trust to read your notes and tell you what they think they’d learn
  • Ask one of our mentors for help with building up your submission
  • Practice!

This public speaking repository, maintained by VM Brasseur, has many useful resources to help you polish your proposals and talks.

Code of Conduct

All speakers will be expected to have read and adhere to the conference Code of Conduct, listed below and also at our website. In particular for speakers: slide contents and spoken material should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate, and neither are language or imagery that denigrate or demean people based on race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, physical appearance, disability, or body size.

Mentors

Presenters, regardless of experience, sometimes want a little help. If you’d like any help in proposing, preparing, or presenting your talk, feel free to contact one of our mentors! A mentor is an experienced presenter who has volunteered to help other presenters.

If you are a first-time speaker, or looking for help to give a shape to the idea that you have in your mind, or just appreciate another set of eyes, our mentors are here to help. If you would like to be matched with a mentor to help with your proposal(s), request a mentor here.

Important Dates

  • July 10: Proposal submission deadline
  • July 29 : Workshop finalization and first round decision for talks
  • August 12 - Final round decision for talks
  • September 10 - Schedule announcement on the website
