And now for something completely different - the PyCon UK Poster Session!
We are pleased to announce the very first PyCon UK poster session. Poster sessions, which are popular at scientific and academic conferences, give the presenter a chance to stand in front of a one meter square "poster" illustrating their topic, and interact with attendees as they pass by - answering questions, trading ideas, etc. in a much more "up close and personal" setting.
Poster sessions are a good way for people to get started presenting at a conference, since one is only talking to a few people at a time. They are also a good venue for niche projects that might not get on a talk program, or for testing the waters with very new ideas.
This year PyCon UK will be holding its first poster session, accepting up to 20 posters. For more information, and to find out how to submit a poster, please visit the poster session page.
