PyCon is now looking for sponsors to help fund the conference; please
see <http://us.pycon.org/TX2006/HowToSponsor> for more information.
Sponsors help ensure that PyCon remains a low-cost conference.
Several levels of sponsorship are available to match your company's
Sponsoring is also a good targeted way to reach a large set of Python
users. If you want to advertise something -- a product, a book, a job
opening -- to the PyCon community, it costs only $200 to include your
marketing material in the tote bag given to all conference attendees.

PyCon 2006 Call for Tutorials
Enjoy teaching classes or tutorials? PyCon 2006 is looking for
proposals for a pre-conference tutorials day. PyCon 2006 will be held
February 24-26 in Addison, Texas (near Dallas). Tutorials will be held
on February 23, at the same location.
Tutorial sessions will be a half day (3 hours, with a 15-minute break);
presenters may request two sessions in order to make up a full day.
Tutorials may be on any topic, but obviously should be instructional in
nature. Providing take-home materials for attendees is encouraged, and
tutorial presenters will receive $50 per student registered for theirsession (with a minimum payment of $500, and a maximum of $1500).
Extra consideration will be given to presenters with prior experience
teaching classes or giving conference tutorials. Please provide one
reference or evidence of such prior experience (sessions taught at
OSCON, EuroPython, local user groups, etc.).
PyCon attendees will register for tutorials. We reserve the right to
cancel tutorials with low attendance; presenters will not be paid for
