PyOhio, the fifth annual Python programming conference for Ohio and the
surrounding region, is accepting proposals for one more week! The deadline
for a submission is June 1st.

If you've ever thought about giving a talk, but haven't made the leap yet,
PyOhio is a very favorable environment for first time speakers.

About PyOhio

PyOhio is one of the largest Python conferences in the midwest, and the
largest entirely free Python conference anywhere. PyOhio 2012 will take
place Saturday-Sunday, July 28-29, 2012 at the Ohio State University in
Columbus, Ohio. A variety of activities are planned, including tutorials,
scheduled talks, Lightning Talks, Open Spaces and Sprints.

Talk Proposals

PyOhio invites all interested people to submit proposals for scheduled
talks, tutorials, and panels. All topics of interest to Python programmers
will be considered.

PyOhio is a great venue to get the word out about your favorite Python
library and how you use it, talk about how Python is used in your company,
or practice your speaking in front of a welcoming audience.

Standard presentation slots will be 40 minutes plus a 10 minute
question-and-answer period. Tutorials may run longer, but should be
structured to be broken across 50 minute slots with a 10 minute break

PyOhio is especially interested in hosting a Beginner’s Track for those new
to Python or new to programming in general. If your proposal would be
suitable for inclusion in a Beginner’s Track, please indicate so.
Organizers will work with speakers and instructors in the Beginner’s Track
to help them coordinate their talks/tutorials into a smooth, coherent
learning curve for new Python users.

PyOhio is also especially interested in talks or panel discussions about
using Python as a core component of your business, or success with using
Python in a traditional corporate IT environment.

submission form at the PyOhio web site. If organizing a panel, please
