Call For Proposals

The CFP is now closed.

The event brings together analysts, scientists, developers, engineers, architects and others from the data science community to discuss new techniques and tools for management, analytics and visualization of data. PyData welcomes presentations focusing on Python as well as other languages used in data science (e.g. R, Julia). Presentation content can be at a novice, intermediate or advanced level. Talks will be 40 minutes long. Tutorial slots are available for either 90 minutes or 120 minute slots.

Each submission consists of a talk title, a paragraph-long description of the talk or tutorial, and a detailed outline of the topics that will be covered in the talk or tutorial. An effective submission should include details about what will be covered and why the audience should attend your talk!

As a reminder, PyData presentations are intended to share knowledge and experience. We welcome talks letting attendees know how you are using tools in your work, but discourage any proposals with the aim of selling a product.

If you are interested in presenting a talk or tutorial, we encourage your submission(s). To see the type of topics presented at previous PyData events, please look at our past conference sites at pydata.org or check out the videos on https://www.youtube.com/user/PyDataTV.
