Dear Python User:
I wonder if you would be kind enough to take the time to read this email and help us to publicize PyCon DC 2005, being held March 23-26 at the Cafritz Conference Center of George Washington University.
The Call for Participation went out some time ago, but it is a good time to remind people that the deadline for submissions is December 31. If you personally are thinking of submitting a paper then this can be a reminder to do so soon!
We already have acceptances from two keynote speakers, and hope to announce them when a third is finalised shortly.
As always you can find out about the conference at
This year we are going to be able to accept credit card payments for the first time, which we hope will be more convenient for delegates.
The registration fees this year are the same as for 2004:
Early Bird (to Jan 22) $175 ($125 student) Regular (to Mar 19) $250 ($175 student) On-Site $300 ($225 student)
A further announcment will be made when the registration site opens for business. In the meantime I would appreciate your assistance in posting this message via any channels you know of that have an interest in the Python language and its applications - publicity is the key to getting the most diverse group of people at PyCon.
regards Steve Holden Chairman, PyCON DC 2005
