The timetable should probably include this information somewhere.

AFAIR, the talk registration didn't have this information either (or
I just missed it). The duration does have some importance when writing
the talk ;-)

I've done these a couple of times already, but the topics are popular:

"Designing Unicode-aware Applications in Python"

Present ways of designing Python applications to be Unicode-aware from ground
up; issues with auto-conversion, detection of character sets, ways to deal with
storage of Unicode data (in databases, text files, spreadsheets, etc.); present
the idea of an online translation manager that collects string to be translated
and provides ways to have them translated to various languages

Around 45 minutes with discussions.

"Developing large-scale applications in Python"

Python is used as scripting or glueing language in many different areas. It's
usefulness as main implementation language for large-scale applications is often
underestimated. The talk will demonstrate that Python is in fact an ideal basis
for developing complete applications - regardless of the size of the project or
its complexity.

Around 60 minutes with discussions.
