    Want to share your expertise? PyCon DC 2004 is looking for proposals to
    fill the formal presentation tracks.

    PyCon DC 2003 had a broad range of presentations, from reports on
    academic and commercial projects to tutorials and case studies, and we
    hope to extend that range this year. As long as the presentation is
    interesting and potentially useful to the Python community, it will be
    considered for inclusion in the program.

    The proposal deadline is December 1; the proposal submission system
    should be up by mid-October. We'll send out another notice with more
    info when the submission system goes live.

    Proposals should be 250-1000 words in text (plain or reST) or HTML. You
    may request either thirty or sixty minutes for your timeslot. Proposals
    will be accepted or rejected by January 1, 2004. If your proposal is
    accepted, you may include a companion paper for publication on the PyCon
    web site.

    If you don't want to make a formal presentation, there will be a
    significant amount of Open Space to allow for informal and
    spur-of-the-moment presentations for which no formal submission is
    required. There will also be several Lightning Talk sessions (five
    minutes or less).

    PyCon is a community-oriented conference targeting developers (both those
    using Python and those working on the Python project). It gives you
    opportunities to learn about significant advances in the Python
    development community, to participate in a programming sprint with some
    of the leading minds in the Open Source community, and to meet fellow
    developers from around the world. The organizers work to make the
    conference affordable and accessible to all.

    DC 2004 will be held March 24-26, 2004 in Washington, D.C. The keynote
    speaker is Mitch Kapor of the Open Source Applications Foundation
    ( There will be a four-day development
    sprint before the conference.
