Who's organising EuroPython ?

The conference is being run by the EuroPython Society, with local organisation by the PyCon UK Society. All the organisers are volunteers from within the Python community, if you wish to join in sign up to, the mailing list we use for planning the conference.

I'm a member of the Python Community: How can I Help ?

Contact the organisers! We'd like talks, tutorials and lots of help organising this event.

About EuroPython

Being a Community Conference means that EuroPython is run entirely by volunteers, that means us the participants. Many of the things that have to be done to run a successful conference can be carried out remotely, and every year Pythonistas from all over Europe help. There is always lots to do at the local level, so a local group wishing to hold EuroPython must be prepared to put in quite a lot of work.

If your local group would like to host EuroPython you will need to submit a proposal to the EuroPython Society and help organise the preceding EuroPython conference.

Normally EuroPython is held in a location for two successive years so that local organisers and participants get the most out of the efforts put into the first year.

This year EuroPython 2010 is being hosted in Birmingham UK by the PyCon UK Society. You can find out more about EuroPython 2010 and Birmingham by following the links in the Navigation bars to the left of this page.

Next year EuroPython 2011 is being hosted in Florence Italy by the PyCon Italia group, who will be helping with the 2010 conference as well.
