Call for Proposals
What Kind of Sessions can I give?
Want to give a talk, but fear you can’t fill a full talk slot? Always wanted to give a lightning talk, but felt you didn’t have enough time to prepare?
For the first time in PyCon North America’s history, we are accepting proposals for lightning talks – 5 minute presentations – during presentation days. Like the 30 or 45 minute talks, the topic is up to you.
Don’t want to prepare a proposal or enjoy the spontaneity? You can still sign up during the conference like in the past; we will have spots available for the impulsive.
How to Submit a Lightning Talk Proposal
What information to submit
- First, sign up for a new account or log in to your account.
- Once you are logged in; proceed to your account dashboard and create a speaker profile.
- At this point, you can submit lightning talk proposals. Fill in the fields as follows:
Give your lightning talk a descriptive title for the audience.
A high-level description of the lightning talk, limited to 400 characters.
Any additional notes for the program committee to make a decision: past talks experience, links to projects, etc. These notes will not be made public.
Any specific needs, e.g. A/V needs, multiple microphones, audio out, etc.
If you have given this presentation before or a similar, feel free to upload those slides for the program committee to review in the context of your proposal(s).
