Talk Voting

Since you are the one who wants to attend the conference, we think you deserve a chance to tell us which talks you'd like to see most.

This is what talk voting is all about. If you think that's an interesting approach, please read on.

Talk voting will open on April 14th and run until April 26nd, 23:59:59 CEST.

Talk voting is closed. Thank you for all your votes!

Who can participate?

To be eligible to vote for talks, you need to be a registered attendee of the current EuroPython main conference, or had been an attendee of a EuroPython conference at lease once since 2015. If you have submitted a proposal this year, you are also eligible to vote. Please note, sprint-only ticket holders will not be able to participate in talk voting.

How talk voting works

The talk voting page lists all submitted proposals, including talks, trainings and posters.

Please note that your own submissions are not listed.

At the top of the page you find a few filters you can use to narrow down the list by e.g. selecting tags you're interested in or only show one type of proposal and also to select the sorting order.

For each submission, you can find the talk title with a link to the talk page.

In order to vote, have a look at the title/abstract and then indicate your personal interest in attending this session. We have simplified the voting process and you may choose between these four options: “must see”, “want to see”, “maybe” and  “not interested”.

If you have questions about the talk, you can go to the talk page and enter a comment.

Note that your votes are automatically saved to the backend without the need to click on a save or submit button.

Talk selection

After the talk voting phase, the EuroPython Program Workgroup (WG) will use the votes to select the talks and build a schedule.

The talk voting is a good and strong indicator what attendees are interested to see. Submissions are selected by the Program Workgroup based on editorial criteria to e.g. increase diversity, give a chance to less mainstream topics as well as avoiding too much of the same topic.

In general, the Program WG will try to give as many speakers a chance to talk as possible. If speakers have submitted multiple talks, the one with the highest rating will most likely get selected.

Schedule announcement

We hope to have the selected talks announced early in May, with the schedule following shortly thereafter. As always, we will make these announcement on our usual news channels.
