This page contains all information regarding the proposal process for DjangoCon Europe – we will update it regularly as new information becomes available.
Deadline is 2020-02-29 🔥 - precisely speaking, that's February 29th, 2020, 23:59 UTC. You can edit your submissions up to this date, so don't hesitate to submit a preliminary version of your talk or workshop.
If you think you have something great to talk about – submit your idea! If you are unsure, talk it over with somebody, or see below for our mentoring section to find people to bounce your idea off of. If you already want to submit your talk, head over here, otherwise read on!
You may think that your idea is not suited to DjangoCon Europe, or that you couldn't possibly present it well, or that others will do it better. We want to prove you wrong. You should consider reading Sasha's blog post on why you should speak at DjangoCon Europe! This blog post still holds true 4 years later.
If you would like to ask a question, you are always welcome to write the content committee: [email protected]
As a speaker, you will not need to buy a ticket, since you gain free entrance to the conference. If you have bought a ticket in advance before being accepted, we will refund it, of course. According to current plans, there will also be a fancy speakers' dinner!
We will not be able to cover travelling and accommodation costs for all speakers, but if you require financial support, please participate in our Opportunity Grant process – speakers will receive special consideration in the selection process.
For companies or employers: talk's content should not be influenced directly by commercial interests, but if your company or employer has supported your process for creating and giving the talk (for instance allowing you to prepare it in working hours), you are always welcome to mention this support during a talk. If your employer or company covers travel and accommodation costs, we have a sponsor recognition policy, meaning the company or organisation can join as a sponsor. Please get in touch with [email protected] to hear more.
Reviewing the talks and tutorials submitted to a conference can be a daunting task – there is much to consider, and usually there are more great submissions than there are slots available in the conference schedule.
We’d like to make our reviewing process and guidelines transparent to every submitter and attendee, both to show you what will await you during the conference as an attendee, and to help you understand our decisions regarding your submissions as a submitter.
We will document our selection process on this website and announce it as a blog post and via Twitter.
Not up for a full talk or tutorial? Looking to give your first talk at a conference? Lightning talks are talks of 5 minutes or less, with or without slides, on almost any topic you want! Even if you’re nervous or shy, remember: it’s a MAXIMUM of 5 minutes. Everyday of the conference will feature a lightning talk slot at the end of the day. Sign-ups will happen at the conference.
