[EuroPython-Announce] EuroPython 2019: Talk Voting is open
mal at europython.eu
Mon May 13 11:58:34 EDT 2019
Talk voting is your chance to tell us what you’d like to see at
EuroPython 2019. We will leave talk voting open until:
* Friday, May 17 23:59:59 CEST *
In order to vote, please log in to the website and then navigate to
the talk voting page:
* https://ep2019.europython.eu/events/talk-voting/ *
How talk voting works
The talk voting page lists all submitted proposals, including talks,
trainings and posters. The proposals are sorted in random order.
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 choose between these four options:
- must see
- want to see
- not interested
The talks you haven’t voted for are marked "no vote". Your votes are
automatically saved to the backend without the need to click on a save
or submit button.
Please note the voting period is a bit shorter this year. We want to
make up some time and release a first selection of accepted proposals
by May 22.
Who can participate ?
Any registered attendee of the current EuroPython as well as any
attendee of one of the past EuroPython conferences going back to 2015
can vote. If you have submitted a proposal this year, you are also
eligible to vote.
After the talk voting phase, the EuroPython Program Workgroup (WG)
will use the votes to select the talks and build a schedule.
The talk voting is a good and strong indicator what attendees are
interested to see. Submissions are also selected based on editorial
criteria to e.g. increase diversity, giving a chance to less
mainstream topics as well as avoiding too much of the same topic.
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 rating will most likely get selected.
Dates and Venues
EuroPython will be held from July 8-14 2019 in Basel, Switzerland, at
the Congress Center Basel (BCC) for the main conference days (Wed-Fri)
and the FHNW Muttenz for the workshops/trainings/sprints days
