First of all, a reminder to those of you considering registering for 
EuroPython 2008, held in Vilnius, Lithuania from 7th to 12th July (talks from 
7th to 9th, sprints from 10th to 12th): the early registration deadline is on 
Saturday 31st May, and if you would like to take advantage of the reduced 
registration fee, now is the time to navigate to the EuroPython site and to 
make your registration:

For the impatient, here's a link to the registration form itself:

Talk Submissions Period Extended

The original deadline for submitting talk proposals for EuroPython 2008 passed 
on Thursday 22nd May, and although there have been quite a few submissions, 
the EuroPython organisers would like to encourage a few more! So, we have now 
decided to give all potential submitters some more time to put together 
proposals and send them in for consideration.

What this means is that anyone who had considered making a talk proposal but 
then found themselves short of time before last Thursday can now aim for the 
new deadline of Monday 2nd June - there's even a weekend before the deadline 
for anyone needing "quiet time" to sketch out their proposal! As always, the 
EuroPython organisers realise that the deadlines we've set aren't always 
compatible with everyone's personal schedule.

Remember that we're only looking for proposals at this point, not the entire 
talk or materials, although we obviously expect those things to be ready for 
the conference. ;-)

Take a look at the Call for Participation for all the details:

We look forward to seeing your proposals and hopefully seeing you in Vilnius!
