Plans for pyArkansas 2011 are underway.  The 4th annual Python conference
will be held October 22 on the campus of UCA (Computer Science Department)
and this year we would like *you* to present a talk on what you are doing
with Python.

Talks are 50 minutes (40 minutes of you talking and then 10-minutes for
questions) and can be on anything Python.  Are you using a standard library
module that's really cool?  Perhaps a third party package that you think
other people should know about?  What about that killer project where you
did something interesting or fun using Python?  This is a chance for you to
share your knowledge with an audience that wants to hear what you have to
say!  Don't think you have to be a "Python Heavyweight" to present; if you
are doing something interesting, we want to hear from you (and we're
bringing in a couple of heavyweights to give tutorials and talks of their
own).  We want a wide selection of topics and skill levels for the

Do you have a paper you would like to present?  This year, we have a special
track for students (High School and College/University) to present academic
papers (25-minute slots).  How cool is that?

Without talks, there is no pyArkansas.  You don't want that, do you?

If you are interested, please email the following information to
pyar2-organizers at python.org (don't "reply" to this).

   - Talk Title
   - A brief (a paragraph or two) description of your talk
   - Intended audience (beginner, intermediate, advanced, web developer,
   gamer, astronomer, etc.)
   - A brief blurb about you (that we can put on the website)
   - Length (papers are 25-minutes, talks are 50-minutes.  There are a few
   longer talks slots available if you feel you need a little more time)

We'll look them all over and make the selections by October 1 to give you
time to prepare.

We're looking forward to seeing you speak this year!
