PyCon DC 2004: Call for Proposals

[Please repost to local Python mailing lists.]
Want to share your expertise? PyCon DC 2004 is looking for proposals to
fill the formal presentation tracks.

PyCon DC 2003 had a broad range of presentations, from reports on
academic and commercial projects to tutorials and case studies, and we
hope to extend that range this year. As long as the presentation is
interesting and potentially useful to the Python community, it will be
considered for inclusion in the program.

The proposal deadline is December 1; the proposal submission system
should be up by mid-October. We'll send out another notice with more
info when the submission system goes live.

Proposals should be 250-1000 words in text (plain or reST) or HTML. You
may request either thirty or sixty minutes for your timeslot. Proposals
will be accepted or rejected by January 1, 2004. If your proposal is
accepted, you may include a companion paper for publication on the PyCon
web site.

If you don't want to make a formal presentation, there will be a
significant amount of Open Space to allow for informal and
spur-of-the-moment presentations for which no formal submission is
required. There will also be several Lightning Talk sessions (five
minutes or less).

For more information, see http://www.python.org/pycon/dc2004/cfp.html
PyCon is a community-oriented conference targeting developers (both those
using Python and those working on the Python project). It gives you
opportunities to learn about significant advances in the Python
development community, to participate in a programming sprint with some
of the leading minds in the Open Source community, and to meet fellow
developers from around the world. The organizers work to make the
conference affordable and accessible to all.

DC 2004 will be held March 24-26, 2004 in Washington, D.C. The keynote
speaker is Mitch Kapor of the Open Source Applications Foundation
(http://www.osafoundation.org/). There will be a four-day development
sprint before the conference.

We're looking for volunteers to help run PyCon. If you're interested,
