PyOhio 2009, the second annual Python programming mini-conference for
Ohio and surrounding areas, will take place Saturday-Sunday, July
25-26, 2009 at the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. A variety
of activities are planned, including tutorials, scheduled talks,
Lightning Talks, and Open Spaces.

PyOhio invites all interested people to submit proposals for scheduled
talks and tutorials. PyOhio will accept abstracts on any topics of
interest to Python programmers.

Standard presentations are expected to last 40 minutes with a 10
minute question-and-answer period. Other talk formats will also be
considered, however; please indicate your preferred format in your
proposal. Hands-on tutorial sessions are also welcomed. Tutorial
instructors should indicate the expected length

PyOhio is especially interested in hosting a Beginners' Track for
those new to Python or new to programming in general. If your proposal
would be suitable for inclusion in the Beginners' Track, please
indicate so. Organizers will work with speakers and instructors in the
Beginners' Track to help them coordinate their talks/tutorials into a
smooth, coherent learning curve for new Python users.

All proposals should include abstracts no longer than 500 words in
length. Abstracts must include the title, summary of the presentation,
the expertise level targeted, and a brief description of the area of
Python programming it relates to.

All proposals should be emailed to cfp at for review. Please
submit proposals by May 15, 2009. Accepted speakers will be notified
by June 1.
