29 Sep - 02 Oct, 2023 Proposal submission closed

Welcome to PyCon India 2023 CFP

  • Join us for PyCon India 2023, the 14th edition of the premier Python conference in India, taking place in the vibrant city of Hyderabad from September 29 to October 2.
  • This annual gathering brings together Python enthusiasts, developers, and industry professionals for four days of inspiring Talks, hands-on Workshops, and networking opportunities. Visit the official website for more information: https://in.pycon.org/2023/


  • Talks should be 30 minutes long (including Q&A – 5 mins) and can be on any topic related to Python.


  • Talks will be there across the morning and evening sessions on September 30, 2023, and October 1, 2023,.
  • We may have up to 3 parallel tracks of talks in each session. The morning session will run from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The evening session will run from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM.


  • The format of each talk will be up to the speaker but should include a mix of lectures, demos, and Q&A.


Workshops are 3 hrs long interactive sessions where attendees can learn by doing.


  • Workshops will be held on September 29, 2023, across two morning and evening sessions.
  • We may have up to 3 parallel tracks of workshops in each session. The morning session will run from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The evening session will run from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM.


  • Workshops are aimed at beginner, intermediate, and advanced experience-level participants.
  • Workshop proposals must include a detailed outline of the covered topics and allocated time.

Important Dates

  • CFP for Talks and Workshop closes on August 5.
  • Selected Talks and Workshops will be announced on September 4.

What to Propose

Any topics of interest to Python programmers, with a focus on the following:

  • Lessons learned from using Python in projects, including unconventional and conventional wisdom and advice for similar problem-solving. E.g., I tried Python for video processing or in my medical imaging project, and here are the lessons.

  • Contributions to improving the Python language/ecosystem, such as creating libraries or proposing optimizations.

  • Knowledge gained from other languages, like type systems, functional programming patterns, or logic programming.

  • Thoughts on tech culture, diversity and inclusiveness, the physical and mental health of programmers, productivity improvement, workplace issues, and their impact when using Python.

  • Alternatively, consider offering teaching sessions on niche topics, recent technologies, or scientific papers, even at a beginner level.


  • Shortlisted speakers will be expected to participate in rehearsal sessions. We will conduct Rehearsals via teleconferencing, where the speaker shall give a mock run of their talks in a time-bound manner.

  • The audience will include volunteers, reviewers, and possibly other speakers. We will give feedback to speakers if necessary.

  • This exercise aims to ensure speakers are ready with their talks beforehand. And also to ensure they can finish the talk within the stipulated time. It is also helpful for the speakers to get feedback on the content delivery and presentation.

  • Participation in the rehearsal sessions is likely to be required - chances of an unrehearsed talk making it to the final stage are substantially lower.


  • We in the Python community believe in making our community more diverse. This suggests that we encourage content from diverse walks of life and also want to improve participation from under-represented groups.

  • Our goal is to maximize content from under-represented groups. You can help us by encouraging your friends, family, and colleagues to submit talks. You can also help by mentoring.

  • Also, note that we have a strict code of conduct. In intent and practice, we are committed to making the conference a pleasant, welcoming, and harassment-free experience for everyone, especially for under-represented groups.
