PyCon Israel 2019 Call For Papers

Welcome ! שלום

PyCon Israel is happening on June 3-5, 2019! This year we're hosting Django Girls TLV and PyData. The event will be attended by hundreds of Pythonistas and sponsored by major international and local companies that use Python in their day-to-day business.

In order to make sure that this conference totally rocks, we need your participation. If you are working on something that you think is awesome and want to share it with others in the Python community, please submit an abstract.

We hope we will be able to record your talk (or talks), and publish on the internet for free, along with a recording of the slide deck, live-demo or other on-presenter-screen activity as well as a transcript and subtitles. We do this for the benefit of the larger Python community and those who can’t make it to the conference. For this reason you will see an agreement before submitting this form, allowing us to publish the recordings under Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license.

Other than standard sessions, we will also accept workshops and sprints this year. Please specify in your submission this is a sprint or workshop and choose the relevant length.

Language for Talks

From past experience, due to considerations of accessibility of the video recordings and for guests from abroad, we expect most of the talks to be in English.

However, since PyCon IL is hosted in Israel and PyCon has traditionally always been very open to the local Python communities, we also accept talk proposals in Hebrew, and will consider setting up a Hebrew track if sufficient number of Hebrew talks are accepted.

The talk submission form lets you choose the preferred language you want to give the talk in. Please submit the talk title and abstract in your preferred language. If you can give your talk in both languages, there is an option to select a second choice of language.

Inappropriate Language and Imagery

Please consider that PyCon Israel is a conference with an audience from varying cultural backgrounds. What might be considered a "funny, inoffensive joke" in some group might be really offensive in another. If you want to add humor, references and images to your talk, avoid any choice that might be offensive to a group which is different from yours, and pay attention to our Code of Conduct located in:
