Call For Proposals

Proposals are being accepted for PyData Paris 2016. The event brings together analysts, scientists, developers, engineers, architects and others from the Python data science community to discuss new techniques and tools for management, analytics and visualization of data.

Presentation content can be at a novice, intermediate or advanced level.

Talks will run 40 min and experience reports 15 minutes. We may also accept shorter talks (15 minutes), lightning talks (5 minutes) and roundtable proposals.

We're also looking for tutorials (90 minutes to 180 minutes), that will happen on the second day of the conference (June 15th).

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

Note that we expect all the talks to be delivered in English, with, maybe exceptions for some of the business talks or roundtables.

If you are interested in presenting a talk, experience report or roundtable on meeting the challenges of big data using Python, please submit a short abstract and bio. To see the type of topics presented at previous PyData events, please look at our past conference site or check out the videos on YouTube.
