PyCon 2007 Call for Tutorials

Enjoy teaching classes or tutorials? PyCon 2007 is looking for
proposals for a pre-conference tutorials day.  PyCon 2007 will be held
February 23-25 in Addison, Texas (near Dallas).  Tutorials will be
held on February 22 at the same location.

Tutorial sessions will be a half day (3 hours, with a 15-minute
break); presenters may request two sessions in order to make up a full
day.  Tutorials may be on any topic, but obviously should be
instructional in nature. Providing take-home materials for attendees
is encouraged, and tutorial presenters will receive $50 per student
registered for their session (with a minimum payment of $500, and a
maximum of $1500).

Extra consideration will be given to presenters with prior experience
teaching classes or giving conference tutorials. Please provide one
reference or evidence of such prior experience (sessions taught at
OSCON, EuroPython, local user groups, etc.).

PyCon attendees will register for tutorials at extra cost.  We reserve
the right to cancel tutorials with low attendance; presenters will not
be paid for cancelled tutorials.

Important Dates

* Submission deadline: November 15, 2006
* Acceptance deadline: November 22, 2006
* Cancellation date: January 20, 2007  (for inadequate attendance)
