  • Web Programming (e.g Django, Pyramid, Web2Py, TurboGears)
  • Cloud Computing
  • Startups, Business, and Education
  • Multimedia, Animation, and Graphics
  • Game Programming
  • GUI Programming

  • System Administration and Security
  • Network Programming
  • Agile Development and Project Best Practices
  • Packaging Issues
  • Programming Tools
  • Python Libraries and Extensions
  • Python Implementations: IronPython, Jython, PyPy and Stackless.

In addition to regular and lightning talks, you can also submit proposals for tutorials and for SciPy Track.

SciPy Track

This year, we open a special, dedicated SciPy track for scientific Python. In this special track, we hope to gather practitioners who use the language for scientific, engineering, or scholarly works. Scientific Pythonistas often look at different points of Python than the general community, and have made this language very special.

The conference provides this SciPy track for those people to focus on their needs. Submissions of the SciPy track will be peer reviewed, therefore, speakers are expected to submit an extended abstract with 1 to 3 pages of A4 paper. Language of the track is English only. Suitable topics of the SciPy track include but are not limited to:

  • Scientific Computing, Technical Computing, High-Performance Computing
  • Scientific/Engineering Education
  • Computational Sciences
  • Bioinformatics
  • Big Data, Data Mining, Machine Learning
  • Computational Physics, Computational Chemistry, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Computational Mechanics, Computational Electromagnetics


We are looking for tutorials that can grow our community at any level. Each tutorial is 6-hour long in one day, and scheduled on Friday - the day preceding the main conference. Any topics that are relevant to Pythonistas' interests are welcome.

Proposal Submission

Please sign up as a speaker and then create your proposals. You can submit proposals for talks, lightning talks, or tutorials. The proposal shall include the following information:

  • Title of the proposal
  • Type of the proposal
  • Language (Mandarin or English, but SciPy track accepts only English)
  • Audience level or prerequisites
  • Abstract, outline, or description. For SciPy track, an extended abstract of 2 to 3 A4 pages is required for every regular talk submission.
  • Permission for your talk to be recorded and released on the conference website
  • Permission for your presentation slide to be downloaded from the conference website
  • Additional information that can help the program committee to make decisions (e.g., years of experience using Python)

Paper Submission

For presenters who wish to write a paper of the same topic, please let us know. We will be happy to assist you to publish your work on The Python Papers or on the conference proceedings. Speakers in the SciPy track are especially encouraged to do so.
