At EuroPython, we let our attendees have a significant say 
in the selection of the sessions which are presented at the conference. 

We call this “talk voting” - attendees can tell us which submitted talks they’d like to see at the conference.

To be eligible to vote for talks, you need to be a registered attendee of the current EuroPython, 
or attendee of the past two EuroPython conferences.

How talk voting works:
Please log in and proceed to 
to vote for talks.

The talk voting page lists all submitted proposals, including talks, trainings and posters.
At the top of the page you find a few filters you can use to narrow down the list by 
e.g. selecting tags you’re interested in or only show one type of proposal and also 
to select the sorting order.
For each submission, you can find the talk title with a link to the talk page.

In order to vote, have a look at the title/abstract and then indicate 
your personal interest in attending this session. 
We have simplified the voting process and you may chose between these four options: 
- “must see”, 
- “want to see”, 
- “maybe”  
- “not interested”.

If you have questions about the talk, you can go to the talk page and enter a comment.
Note that your votes are automatically saved to the backend without the need to click on a save or submit button.

Talk selection
After the talk voting phase, the EuroPython Program Workgroup (WG) will use the votes to select 
the talks and build a schedule.
The majority of the talks will be chosen based on the talk voting results. 
Part of the available slots will be directly assigned by the Program WG 
based on editorial criteria to e.g. increase diversity or give a chance to less mainstream topics.

In general, the Program WG will try to give as many speakers a chance to talk as possible. 
If speakers have submitted multiple talks, the one with the highest rate will most likely get selected.
