Call for Submissions

PyConZA 2024 will take place on the 3rd & 4th of October, 2024. This year, PyConZA will be a hybrid conference (with in-person and online access) hosted at the Belmont Square Conference Centre in Rondebosch, Cape Town.

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)
  • Remote Talks (30 minute long talks that will be delivered remotely -- note that the number of remote talk slots is more limited due to technical constraints).

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/how-to-submit-a-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 2024.

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.

PyConZA offers a mentorship program for inexperienced speakers. If you would like assistance preparing your submission, email team@za.pycon.org with a rough draft of your talk proposal and we'll find a suitable experienced speaker to act as a mentor.

If you want to present something that doesn't fit into the standard talk categories at PyConZA, please contact the organising committee at team@za.pycon.org so that we can discuss whether it would be feasible.
