🗳 Talk voting is your chance to tell us what you’d like to see at EuroPython 2021. We will leave talk voting open until:
In order to vote, please log in to the website and navigate to the talk voting page:
Any registered attendee of EuroPython 2021 with a paid ticket, as well as attendees of one of the past EuroPython conferences (going back to 2015) can vote. If you have submitted a proposal this year, you are also eligible to vote.
If you have not attended EuroPython before, but want to participate in talk voting, you have to buy a ticket before you can vote.
The talk voting interface lists all submitted proposals, including talks, helpdesks and posters. You can then vote on the proposal you'd like to see at the event.
Details on the voting process are described on our talk voting page.
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 of what attendees are interested to see. Submissions are also selected based on editorial criteria, for example, to increase diversity, give a chance to less mainstream topics and make sure that topics don't overlap too much.
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.
