In the last few weeks, we had a close look at the how the situation around COVID-19 is panning out. Unfortunately, things are not moving in a direction where we’d feel confident to hold next year’s conference as an in-person event in Dublin.
After discussion with the venue, we decided to postpone the in-person conference for another year, to July 11-17 2022 in Dublin, Ireland. We are currently finalizing the details.
Since going online has proven to work well, we also want to keep the momentum for EuroPython 2022 and are planning to run the event in a hybrid version, where both speakers and attendees can optionally join online.
Given the experience with running EuroPython 2020 online this year, we are sure that EuroPython 2021 will be a success as well.
We will take the experience we’ve gained from this year’s event to improve the online version next year, simplify some aspects, reactivate finaid and enable joining it in smaller groups to create a distributed experience.
We’re still collecting ideas, so if you have any suggestions, we’d love to hear them. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
