This is a community conference
Because DjangoCon Europe is a community conference, we want to hear from you about the cool new extension to Django you've created, the best way to scale a Django project, how to make apps that are reusable, etc.
We are aiming for a conference with a focus on advanced topics. You can assume that all attendees have a good understanding about the Django framework and will understand (and welcome) an in-depth talk.
Make it easy to review
We have to use the information you provide to decide whether or not to accept your proposal. Keep it brief and focused; the reviewers are all seasoned Django professionals.
- April 15th: submission deadline
- May 1st: acceptance announcements
Speakers must register, too
DjangoCon Europe is a volunteer-run conference funded mainly by ticket sales; everybody pays to attend (including speakers). Talk submission is not a substitute for purchasing a ticket. If you plan on giving a talk, please make sure to purchase conference tickets and arrange transportation/lodging for yourself.
Talks are Public
All talks given at DjangoCon will be recorded and published online; people submitting a talk must explicitly authorize the recording and publishing of their talk by checking the checkbox.
There are two types of talks that can be given at DjangoCon:
- Short (20 minutes): Speakers should budget 15 minutes for the actual presentation and 5 minutes for answering questions from the audience.
- Normal (45 minutes): Speakers should budget 30 minutes for the actual presentation and 15 minutes for answering questions from the audience.
If a short presentation is overkill for your topic, consider giving a 5-minute lightning talk! There will be several lightning-talk sessions throughout the conference, as well as adjoining "Open Spaces" for informal and spontaneous presentations. Lightning talks can be on a wide variety of topics! Talk about a cool project you're working on, some technique or tool that you want to highlight, or a cool story you wish to share with the Django community—so long as your talk fits into 5 minutes.
Lightning talks submissions are now open. Open-space registration is ad-hoc and will take place during DjangoCon; instructions on how to register will be posted to the site. Registration for these will be first-come-first-served.
If you have any further questions don't hestitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Talk submission is closed
