    This year, the EuroPython conference will take up residence for the
    second time in Vilnius, Lithuania with the main programme of talks and
    events taking place on Monday 7th, Tuesday 8th and Wednesday 9th July,
    and with sprints continuing after the main programme until and
    including Saturday 12th July.

    More information can be found on the updated EuroPython site, which
    can be found in the usual place:

    Last year, the conference focused on agile development, but also
    promoted many of the familiar categories: business, education, games,
    language and libraries, science, social skills and Web development. Of
    course, topics such as Web development remain as popular as ever, but
    we also saw strong contributions in other areas such as robotics and
    database systems.

    With this in mind, we would like to get feedback from anyone thinking
    of coming to EuroPython 2008 about the kind of topics they would like
    to see covered at the conference. Perhaps the arrival of Python 3.0
    makes you wonder about how, when or even whether you might make the
    transition from Python 2.x or earlier to the new release series.
    Perhaps you want to know more about how Python is used in the "real
    world" and how others have deployed large systems written in Python.
    Or maybe you are fascinated with the potential for using Python on
    mobile devices.

    We welcome your thoughts and ideas, either on this list/group (just
    reply to this message!), on the EuroPython mailing list...

    ....or by becoming a contributor on the EuroPython Web site:

    Take a look at this page for some ideas that have already been

    And feel free to suggest specific talk ideas or even other kinds of
    activities which might enhance the conference experience, perhaps
    borrowed from conferences such as PyCon. Since EuroPython is a
    community conference, volunteers are welcome in many different areas:

    Why not step up and improve the EuroPython experience for yourself and
    for everyone else? Make EuroPython yours: get involved now!
