Pycon Israel 2021

PyCon Israel 2021 Call For Papers

Welcome ! שלום

PyCon Israel is happening on May 2-3, 2021! And this year it will be an all remote conference.

This year’s PyCon is growing and will include 3 tracks – General, PySecurity and PyData. The full track for PyData will include anything related to the convergence of Python and data and PySecurity will include anything related to the convergence of Python and security. This online 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, then we invite you to talk about it with some of the best minds in the industry.

From past experience, PyCon attendees like to hear about practical examples that they can use in their daily life. All talks should show code snippets at least (though keep in mind that the font has to be large enough).
Submit a talk if there are technical hurdles you’ve overcome, technologies you’ve utilized in a new or exciting matter, great improvements that you’ve made, fun libraries and tools you’ve open sourced, or anything you’re excited about.

Please try to answer the question: What will the attendees take away from this talk?

All talks will be pre-recorded so that you can be at your best, though we expect the speaker to be at the event for Q&A and engagement. This is a great chance for you if you’ve shied away from giving a talk in the past because of stage fright. Once the conference is over we’ll publish all the talks on our YouTube channel. We do this for the benefit of the larger Python community and those who can’t attend the live 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.

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 a 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 humour, 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:
