PyCon UK

Information for speakers


You should by now have seen the conference schedule. Please ensure you know when and where your talk is!

The schedule won’t change now without a very good reason. If we do have to move your session, we’ll let you know as soon as possible.

Slack channel for speakers

We have a Slack team with a private channel for speakers and workshop leaders. Please join it!

Giving your talk

You'll have a session chair who will introduce you, help you keep to time, and help you with questions (if you choose to take them - you don't have to).

You will have twenty-five minutes for your session, including any questions.  

We will be filming almost all the talks, and will put the videos on YouTube. If you would not like your talk to be filmed, please let us know.

All of the rooms have projectors, which can take HDMI, Mini-DisplayPort/Thunderbolt or USB C as inputs. Room D and the Ferrier Hall have a 4:3 screen; everywhere else is 16:9.

If you're speaking in the Assembly Room, your talk will be transcribed and displayed on screens around the room.  The stenographers have requested that we tell them in advance about any unusual words that may come up. Please create a separate page for your talk in the document we'll be sharing with them. If you could add your page in chronological order, that will help make life easier for everyone.

For workshops, one of the team will help you get set up and will check in from time to time.

Room 136 (downstairs) is our speaker preparation room ("Green room"). Please make use of it if you need somewhere to prepare.

Thank you, on behalf of the whole Python community in the UK, for the work you're doing to make the conference a success.
