UK Python Conference - 20-23 April 2005 - Last Call for talks

The UK Python Conference for 2005 will take place at
the Randolph Hotel, Oxford on 20-23 April 2005.

This is the FINAL CALL for talks. The original deadline
of 26th December has been extended to 6 January, to help
all those folks who were concentrating on the PyCon deadline
of 30th December. Recycled PyCon talks are acceptable.
About the event
===============
This will once again be held as a track within the ACCU
conference. The conference site is here:
http://www.accu.org/conference/

Python track information will be reachable from here once
talk selection is complete:
http://www.accu.org/conference/highlights.html#python
The ACCU event is one of the foremost conferences for programmers,
attracting the inventors and/or leading proponents of C, C++,
Java, .NET and Python over the last few years. Past Python speakers
have included Guido van Rossum, David Ascher, Alex Martelli, Armin Rigo,
Paul Everitt, Marc-Andre Lemburg and many others, and the
ACCU now treats Python as being fully on par with Java and C++.
The event is priced midway between commercial and community
events, at approx. £100 per day, and is professionally managed.

It is located in a historic hotel in the centre of Oxford and is
ideal for anyone wanting to combine a holiday with a conference.

We aim to hold a Python 'masterclass' the day before, and are working
to arrange a PyPy sprint the week after.
Conference Format
=============== ==
The Python conference will span THREE days, with ONE track.
The first slot each morning is taken by the cross-conference
keynote. This was the overwhelming preference of those we polled
last year. (There will NOT be a separate Open Source track this
year; the "rotating special subject" is Security. As a result,
Python-related security talks would be of interest)

You may propose 90 minute or 45 minute talks. The
ACCU's general preference is for a small number of high
quality, well prepared talks on subjects of broad interest
to programmers, and the Python track will follow this.
There will also be space for less formal lunchtime talks,
evening BOFs and other events.

Speakers' compensation is yet to be confirmed, but in the
past those doing 90 minutes (or 2x45 minute talks) will be
eligible for 4 days paid accomodation and admission to
the 4 day event; 45 minute speakers will gain 1 day's admission.
Where possible, we will attempt to allocate resources to ensure
that the best speakers are able to attend irrespective of
circumstances.
Submission Procedure
=============== ====
Please send an email to pyuk2005_talks at reportlab.com
not later than 6th January (this is the FINAL deadline!),
with the following information:
Your Name
Short Biography
Talk Title
Talk Synopsis

This is a simple mailbox; the committee will review and
acknowledge submissions next week.
If the talk is selected, you will be given a chance to refine
the details through a web based system in January.
Committee
=========
A small committee has been formed to scrutinize talk proposals
including those whol volunteered last year. This includes
myself, Dr. Tim Couper and Dr. John Lee. General discussion about
the event should be directed to the python-uk list
(python-uk at python.org)

ReportLab Europe Ltd. is managing parts of the event infrastructure
and will be providing some staff time to provide a guaranteed
point of contact.
