Submission Mechanics

Use the `PyCon Online Proposal Submission <>`_
to send us your proposals and ideas.

If your paper is accepted, you have the option of including a companion
paper along with your presentation.  The paper will get published on the
PyCon web site.  Presentations and papers may be in text (plain or
`reST <>`_), HTML, or PDF; HTML
and PDF are preferred.

Other Presentations

If you don't want to make a formal presentation, there will be a
significant amount of Open Space to allow for informal and
spur-of-the-moment presentations for which no formal submission is
required.  There will also be several Lightning Talk sessions for
talks no longer than five minutes.
