Q. When and where is EuroPython 2023 taking place?
A. EuroPython 2023 will be held on 17-23 July 2023. Put the dates in your diary!
The in-person conference (17-21 July) will be held at The Prague Congress Centre, the PCC in Prague, Czech Republic.
For the virtual conference, detailed instructions will be announced at a later time.
Sprint Weekend(22-23 July) will take place in Rajska Building (RB), Žižkov Campus, VŠE (Prague University of Economics and Business). The sprints will be free of charge and open to the public. If you are only attending the sprints, separate registration will be required and registration information will be made available later here.
If you have any questions, you are welcome to reach out to the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q. What will the schedule look like?
A. The conference will be organised in three phases:
- Monday & Tuesday (17.07 & 18.07): workshops and tutorials
- Wednesday - Friday (19.07 - 21.07): main conference days
- Saturday & Sunday (22.07 & 23.07): sprints (hackathon), location and details TBC.
Q. What will the programme look like?
A. The conference will feature around 20 hands-on tutorials & workshops, 120 talks and other interactive sessions. We aim to have a very diverse programme, covering the many different aspects of where and how Python solves problems or engages in interesting things.
To get an idea of what to expect, have a look at the EP2022's programme.
To select talks, we ran a Call for Proposals (CFP). Talks are then curated based on the input from the community voting.
We are always keen to hear new ideas on how to enrich the programme and other activities you are interested in participating during the conference. Share your thoughts with the programme team at email@example.com.
Q. When do you accept talk proposals?
A. The Call for Proposals (CFP) was run between 6-26 March 2023. We are thrilled to have received more than 500 proposals on a wide range of topics. This record-breaking number of proposals reflected the great width of interests of our community. We are also proud to have provided support to first-time speakers via our Speaker Mentorship Programme.
Q. How do you review and select talks?
A. After Call for Proposals (CFP) finishes, submissions go through two rounds of review and refinement as we put together our programme. You can find the details about our selection process here
Q. What support do you give to speakers?
A. Accepted speakers are eligible for a free Conference Ticket; accepted workshop & tutorial organisers are eligible for a free Combined Ticket (see details of the ticket types). In addition, speakers are encouraged to apply for additional Financial Aid, should there be a need.
We give support to first-time speakers and actively encourage, accommodate and welcome the participation of those from under-represented groups in tech. Check out our Speaker Mentorship Programme for details.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us what other speaker support you might need!
Q. When do ticket sales start and what are the ticket prices like?
A. Ticket sales are on sale now!
We have put a lot of work in keeping the in-person ticket prices affordable. Check out our tickets page for details. We also offer volume discount for businesses.
We encourage and trust you to pick a fair ticket tier that fits your personal circumstance. The money you spend will be put straight back to the community to support our diversity initiatives, Financial Aid Programme and other grants offered to the European Python community.
Q. Is there a Financial Aid Programme for EuroPython 2023?
A. Yes, our Financial Aid Programme for in-person participation was open for application until 21 May. It is now closed after receiving record-high applications. We are very proud to be supporting so many Pythonistas to attend the conference.
Q. Do you provide childcare?
A: Free Childcare is available at the conference for those who need it. Please make sure to register a ticket for yourself and select how many children will require childcare at checkout. Unfortunately, we might not be able to provide childcare for the sprint weekend.
Q. Could you provide a visa support letter for my visa application?
A. Yes. We have a dedicated Visa Information Page with details on how to obtain the support letter. Please refer to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Czech Republic for information, including the application process for an Schengen visa for the purpose of “business” when attending a conference.
Q. When can sponsors start signing up?
A: We are open for sponsorship signup now. You can find all the details of the 2023 sponsorship packages and options on our sponsorship page, as well as the demographics of previous years.
Sponsors who sign up by 31 March will receive a 10% discount as our launch sponsors.
We are committed to making EuroPython sponsorship accessible to most organisations keen to help the community. If you are interested in supporting EuroPython 2023, get in touch with our sponsors team at email@example.com
Q. How can I help you with the conference organisation?
A. The EuroPython conference is entirely run by volunteers and we always need some extra help. If you want to get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we are always happy for a chat!
