Submit Talk Proposal

Attention Submissions for talks has now closed

It is a pleasure to invite you to PyCon Thailand!

June 16-17 2018 will be the first PyCon in Thailand and we need your help. PyCon's happen all over the world, hosted by python programmers for python programmers. PyCon Thailand will be a two day weekend conference with talks in both Thai and English. We want your proposal for talks, lightning talks and workshops.

Proposal Selection Process

Selecting the proposals to include in the conference is complex, involving a selection committee, and several meetings. We take the process very seriously, and respect and value the effort that every submitter has taken in preparing their proposal. We will be annoucing the date of the talk schedule and who as been accepted at a later date.

How to write a great proposal

If you would be interested in advice, tips or suggestions for writing a great proposal, PyCon AU have two great articles:

Training day for first-time speakers

In order to welcome first-time speakers and improve their conference experience, we'll be having a training day one day before the conference! This will allow new speakers to do a run-through to get used to the venue, and to gather some final feedback.

Important Dates

The deadline to submit abstracts has now passed

April 27th 2018 Deadline for submission (closed)

We know the schedule is a bit tight, so we'll make sure we answer you as quickly as possible. Because of the time constraints, all talks will be accepted based on the abstract only. In no way does that imply that your presentation should be any less awesome than your abstract.

For more information, please look consult the Call for paper

Who Should Submit a Proposal?

You. Your friends. Your friends’ friends. Anyone with any level of Python knowledge is a candidate for a great topic at this conference. We want talks in Thai and English. We want who live in Thailand, Southeast Asia and from around the world. We want to put on the most interesting conference we can and we do that with your help.

Whether you got started with Python last month or you’ve been around for 20 years, we think you’ve got something to share. The Python community is stronger than ever and we’re still reaching new areas, new industries, and new users. Be a part of growing Python by helping us change the future.

Speaker Benefits

PyCon has a strong tradition of being a conference of peers and as such, everyone pays, even speakers. However all speakers will only have to pay the early bird price. If you are able to pay for a full registration, then please consider doing so. This is a volunteer led conference and all funds going back into the event.

Which Topics Are Suitable?

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to:

Suggested Topics
Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence Big Data / Pandas / Jupyther Fintech / Quantitative Finance
eEnergy / Social Impact Blockchain Web Development
System Administration / DevOps / Deployment Python Libraries and Extensions Python in Education, Science and Maths
Business and Scientific Applications Embedding and Extending Python Game Programming
GUI Programming Network Programming Testing and Development Tool Chains
Project Best Practices Python Implementations: IronPython, Jython, PyPy, Stackless and MicroPython Internet of Things

You are probably doing something more interesting to others than you know. Submit a proposal.

What Talk Types Are Needed?

Conference Talks

This is the most important talk type! We are aiming at a two track conference, but the venue could support even a three track conference! Your talk should be either 30 minutes or 45 minutes and leave some room for questions at the end.

Lightning Talks

Lightning talks are a great PyCon tradition. They are 5 minutes only talks (we do count down). This would be a great opportunity for first-time speakers to step up and give a short talk about a useful Python library they recently discovered or about interesting Python events that will happen in the near future.


If want to do a more in depth tutorial or training as part of this conference send us your proposal. Workshops are free for attendees so paid workshops are not appropriate this year. Workshops are between 1-3 hours. We will work the schedule around including workshops if we feel its valuable.

If you would like feedback on your proposal

Please submit questions in your abstract and we will follow up with you.
