First of all, a reminder to those of you considering registering for EuroPython 2008, held in Vilnius, Lithuania from 7th to 12th July (talks from 7th to 9th, sprints from 10th to 12th): the early registration deadline is on Saturday 31st May, and if you would like to take advantage of the reduced registration fee, now is the time to navigate to the EuroPython site and to make your registration: http://www.europython.org/Registration For the impatient, here's a link to the registration form itself: http://registration.europython.eu/ Talk Submissions Period Extended -------------------------------- The original deadline for submitting talk proposals for EuroPython 2008 passed on Thursday 22nd May, and although there have been quite a few submissions, the EuroPython organisers would like to encourage a few more! So, we have now decided to give all potential submitters some more time to put together proposals and send them in for consideration. What this means is that anyone who had considered making a talk proposal but then found themselves short of time before last Thursday can now aim for the new deadline of Monday 2nd June - there's even a weekend before the deadline for anyone needing "quiet time" to sketch out their proposal! As always, the EuroPython organisers realise that the deadlines we've set aren't always compatible with everyone's personal schedule. Remember that we're only looking for proposals at this point, not the entire talk or materials, although we obviously expect those things to be ready for the conference. ;-) Take a look at the Call for Participation for all the details: http://www.europython.org/CallForParticipation Or go straight to the page for talk submissions: http://www.europython.org/Talk_Submissions We look forward to seeing your proposals and hopefully seeing you in Vilnius!
