> Call for proposals -- PyCon 2011 -- <http://us.pycon.org/2011/>
> ===============================================================
> Proposal Due date: November 1st, 2010
> PyCon is back! With a rocking new website, a great location and
> more Python hackers and luminaries under one roof than you could
> possibly shake a stick at. We've also added an "Extreme" talk
> track this year - no introduction, no fluff - only the pure
> technical meat!
> PyCon 2011 will be held March 9th through the 17th, 2011 in Atlanta,
> Georgia. (Home of some of the best southern food you can possibly
> find on Earth!) The PyCon conference days will be March 11-13,
> preceded by two tutorial days (March 9-10), and followed by four
> days of development sprints (March 14-17).
> PyCon 2011 is looking for proposals for the formal presentation
> tracks (this includes "extreme talks"). A request for proposals for
> poster sessions and tutorials will come separately.
> Want to showcase your skills as a Python Hacker? Want to have
> hundreds of people see your talk on the subject of your choice? Have
> some hot button issue you think the community needs to address, or have
> some package, code or project you simply love talking about? Want to
> launch your master plan to take over the world with Python?
> PyCon is your platform for getting the word out and teaching something
> new to hundreds of people, face to face.
> In the past, PyCon has had a broad range of presentations, from reports
> on academic and commercial projects, tutorials on a broad range of
> subjects, and case studies. All conference speakers are volunteers and
> come from a myriad of backgrounds: some are new speakers, some have been
> speaking for years. Everyone is welcome, so bring your passion and your
> code! We've had some incredible past PyCons, and we're looking to you to
> help us top them!
> Online proposal submission is open now! Proposals  will be accepted
> through November 10th, with acceptance notifications coming out by
> January 20th. To get started, please see:
