We encourage you to submit the proposal as early as possible. You are welcomed to submit multiple proposals.

Recording policy

Due to the ongoing global pandemic, PyCon APAC 2022 will be held fully remote and all online talks this year will be pre-recorded. After your proposal is accepted, a pre-recording of the presentation will be provided to the PyCon APAC 2022 organizing team prior to the conference. For speakers who reside in Taiwan, we will offer a slot and assist you to record the presentation in a professional video studio in Taipei (travel expenses covered).

Sponsors logos

Thanks to our sponsors, we could make PyCon APAC one of the greatest events. We will embed sponsors' logos in the presentation videos that play during and after the conference.

Guidelines for Proposal Submission


We accept a broad range of Python-related proposals from academic research to commercial projects, case studies, or soft topics such as running a community, making good communication, mental health, etc. So basically, if you are reading this, just submit your proposal!

We encourage speakers to talk about your own Python package or application, your experience of learning Python or hosting a Python community, etc. Talks on advanced topics are highly welcomed as well. For your inspiration, our committee has suggested that they’d love to see talks on the following topics: A.I., Machine Learning, Data Analysis, FinTech, Medical Care, Semiconductor, Manufacturing, etc.

When considering different topics, you may be interested in reviewing selected speeches over the past few years at PyCon APAC and PyCon Taiwan.

Talks will be lasting either 45 minutes, 30 minutes, or 15 minutes, depending on you, you’ll measure and decide how much time you need. Note that the length of a talk includes setup and Q&A session.

If it’s your first time to propose a talk at PyCon APAC or a conference in general, please have a look at “How to Propose a Talk?” to learn more about conventions, and it might help you organize your thoughts on your proposal.

This year, we will invite part of the unselected talks to share at the PyCon communities where speakers reside (APAC countries only).


Similar to talks, we don’t pose limitations on tutorial topics. This year, tutorials are free and the length is 1.5 hours. It will be at the same time as the conference. The guideline for tutorial submission is based on the guideline for talks, so make sure you have read “How to Propose a Talk?”. On top of that, We have some special requirements for tutorial submission, please refer to “How to Propose a Tutorial?” for more information.

Proposals Review Process

After the Call for Proposals ends, and before the announcement of acceptance, the PyCon APAC 2022 Proposals Review Committee is going to review the proposals and give scores and provide feedback. The process consists of three phases:

  • Stage 1 Review: Reviewers are going to score and give feedback. This will last for about 2 to 3 weeks
  • Modification Step: According to reviewers’ comments, you can modify your proposal through the dashboard. This step lasts for about 1 to 2 weeks
  • Stage 2 Review: Reviewers are going to re-score and re-give feedback to the modified proposals

Proposals Review Process

Between the stage 1 and stage 2 review, you can see the feedback from the reviewer. You may modify your proposal according to reviewers’ comments or feedback. If you want to make your change obvious to the reviewers, you can point out the ID of the comment, and mention about what you’ve modified according to the comment in the “Supplementary” section, e.g. “#4: Updated the time management for xxx phase”
