Planning for PyCon DC 2004, the Python community conference, is now underway. DC 2004 will be held March 24-26, 2004 in Washington, D.C. It will contain many of the features of this year's successful conference, including a development sprint and a similar cost structure. Registration will be open by October 1.
A Call For Proposals will be issued in the next two weeks. Presentations will be required in electronic form for publication on the web.
PyCon DC 2003 had a broad range of presentations, from reports on academic and commercial projects to tutorials and case studies, and these will all be included in the Call For Proposals. As long as the presentation is interesting and potentially useful to the Python community, it will be considered for inclusion in the program.
There will again 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. These informal sessions are opportunities for those who don't want to make a formal presentation.
