    <>, the second Italian Python conference.
    Also, booking is now open.

    For a short while we are still accepting papers for PyCon Italia Due,
    the second edition of the Italian Python conference. This year the
    conference will be held from May 9th to 11th in Florence, Italy.

    The first day of the conference (9th May) will start at Palazzo Vecchio
    in the afternoon with an opening keynote by Richard Stallman. The next days
    the conference will instead be at the Viva Hotel Laurus near the Duomo.

    Call for papers <>


    The conference is structured on three parallel tracks: Discovering
    Python, Spreading Python and Learning Python.

    * Discovering Python will primarily focus on introductory topics
    about Python libraries, framework and technologies;

    * Spreading Python will focus both on advanced technical topics and
    parallel arguments like development methodologies, real-world use
    cases and management techniques;

    * Learning Python will feature a continuous interaction between the
    speaker and the audience: the speaker will propose a topic and
    introduce a possible solution, then the talk will dynamically
    evolve, naturally following questions and notes from the audience.

    Talks could focus on the following topics (the list is neither exclusive
    nor exaustive):

    * large and/or distributed applications written in Python;
    * scientific and computationally intensive applications;
    * interaction with other languages/environments, RPC, services;
    * web programming and frameworks;
    * desktop programming and GUI toolkits;
    * Python as "scripting" language (system housekeeping, COM, etc...);
    * Python and databases;
    * Python as an educational language.

    Talks will be screened on contents, relevance for Python community and
    overall quality.

    Each talk will have one of the following duration: 30', 60' or 90'. Please
    specify which length best fits your contents. This timeframe also includes
    question time, and enough leeway for the audience to enter and leave the

    The talk must be given in either English or Italian language. For native
    English speaker, please consider that you will probably need to speak a
    little slower than usual, for better comprehension by the audience, so
    the talk may come out longer than you expect. See also the note at the
    end of this paper.

    How to submit a paper

    Your talk proposal must be submitted online through Assopy[1]. You will
    need to enter some biographic notes about the speaker, and an abstract
    of the talk (a couple of paragraphs).

    If your talk is accepted

    Once your talk proposal is approved, you have to submit your paper
    before the conference opening day.

    Each paper must be original work. We cannot accept papers containing
    material copyrighted by others.

    Papers should be in plain text, HTML (single page please), PostScript or
    PDF. Please use a standard format, viewable and printable on all major

    The files must be submitted within Assopy[1].

    A note for non-Italian speakers

    We warmly welcome and encourage the presence of non-Italian speakers
    at PyCon Italia. However, most talks will be in Italian language.

    We will probably provide Italian-to-English realtime translation for our
    guests, and also English-to-Italian realtime translation for that part of
    the audience which is not much familiar with English.
