The EuroPython conference will have tracks for Science, Business,
Education, Applications, Frameworks, Zope and the Python language

Python users interested in special subjects. In the days before and
after the conference, programming sprints will be arranged.

In a call for participation that was issued today, prospective
speakers were welcomed to give either a formal, refereed paper or a
less formal regular presentation.

"We see a lot of interest in this years conference even before
officially announcing it, with people asking for accomodation
information, wanting to give talks and volunteering for other tasks",
says Jacob Hallén, head organiser.

"We hope that people will stay for a few days after the conference to
join spontaneously organised programming sprints", says Laura
Creighton, sprint coordinator. Sprints are fun, and we will have good
facilities for them.
