Call for Proposal (CfP)

We are pleased to announce that PyCon Sweden will return for its 2020 edition on November 12-13 2020 (Online) and Call for Proposal is now open. Python is a versatile language with a rich ecosystem of tools and libraries, supporting a wide variety of applications. This ranges from deep-learning to backend system developments, scientific research and the list goes on. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we decided that this edition will be held completely online to ensure safe conference participation. We are now calling for a proposal on inspirational talks (approximately 30 minutes but flexible) from the Python Community. Furthermore, longer workshops (up to 4 hours) are also welcomed. Unlike previous editions, this year we are not limited in the number of talks and workshops. However, please be realistic in proposing the topic and estimating the amount of material you can deliver to the audience. Presentations and workshops will require you to have a modern browser like Chrome or chromium that has video conference functionality. The conference will be streamed directly into our YouTube channel and be available afterwards. All proposals will be rigorously evaluated in terms of relevance, technical content, and interest to the community, to ensure a high-quality program for the conference.

Conference: 12-13 November 2020

DevOps

DevOps combines software development and application operations. Python based tools are often widely used in the toolbox. We look for talks on Python DevOps toolchains and workflow.

Testing / Continous Integration

Python has a nice ecosystem of software engineering tools, such as testing. Python also powers continous integration systems. We look for talks on Python's role in different stages of testing and continous integration.

Cyber Security

One widely used, but less talked-about use of Python is in Cyber Security. We look for talks on using Python tools and related work in the security toolkit. We also welcome talks on enhancing security of Python applications against attacks and intrusion.

Big Data / Data Science

Python is perhaps the most widely used computer language in Data science. With a large number of libraries and frameworks support data science research. We look for talks on tools and libraries in Python that support research and prototyping in data science workflow.

High-Performance / Scientific Computing

Python is one of the programming language of choice in the scientific community. Yet, the software prototypes can suffer from performance bottlenecks. However, the use of high performance and optimized Python software are increasingly popular on HPC systems. We call for talks on performance engineering of Python software.

Web

Python powers many websites and backends with frameworks such as Django and other backend technologies. We call for talks on Python's use along the web service stack.

Education

IT education in schools have become a hot topic in recent years. Python has become a candidate first language for schools for many of its nice properties. Teaching Python is however not always easy. We call for talks on techniques, experiences and case-studies of IT education in Python or Python education

Career

Python is now one of the most popular "first" language taught in school. At the same time it is also a popular laugnage for cross domain work due to its simplicity. We look for talks on how to develop one's career using Python as a tool for career development.
