This is a second call for talk proposals for PyConZA 2021. While we've
already received several great talk proposals, we still have a number
of open talk slots and are thus keen to see further talk submissions.

PyCon ZA 2021 will take place on the 7th & 8th of October, 2021. This
year, due to the ongoing pandemic, PyCon ZA will again be an online
event. We will be streaming the talks and using discord for discussion
around the talks and other conference activities.

We are looking for the following presentations:
  - Keynotes (45 minute long talks on a subject of general interest)
  - Talks (30 minute long talks on more specific topics)

If you would like to give a presentation, please register at
https://za.pycon.org/ and submit your proposal, following the
instructions at https://za.pycon.org/talks/submit-talk/ . We have a
number of tracks available, including: Data Science, Teaching and
Learning with Python, Web, Scientific Computing, Testing and Other
(which includes all talks that don't fall under the mentioned tracks).
We hope to notify accepted presenters by no later than the 31st of
August 2021.

Speakers will be expected to be available after the presentation for a
short Q&A session. Shared sessions are also possible. The
presentations will be in English.

PyCon ZA offers a mentorship program for inexperienced speakers. If
you would like assistance preparing your submission, email
team at za.pycon.org with a rough description of what you would like to
talk about and we'll find a suitable experienced speaker to act as a

If you want to present something that doesn't fit into the two talk
categories at PyCon ZA, please contact the organising committee at
team at za.pycon.org so we can discuss whether that will be feasible.
