    We have just published a [new page][1] with all the details.


    If you are a female computer scientist student, and you were planning to
    attend to the conference, we recommend that you go reading the grant details
    and apply to it.


    Google, the [Python Software Foundation][2], and the [Python Italia
    Association][3] are committed to increase the diversity within the Python
    community, and encourage more female computer scientists to attend our events.


    As organizers, we will strive to provide an environment which can be enjoyed
    by everybody, regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, disability or
    race. Our [code of conduct][4] (that every person taking part to the event is
    required to agree with) has been carefully designed to reflect our goals.


    ## Schedule reminders


    Call for paper will close on April 6th! Make sure to not miss the date and
    [submit your proposal now][5]!


    Registrations are open! [Buy a ticket][6] before April 11th to take part to
    the [community talk voting][7]!

    Hmm, this introduces a race condition for speakers :-)

    Since you recommended for speakers to register after the talk
    voting process, (potential) speakers cannot take part in the
    talk voting process, it seems.

    Since you recommended for speakers to register after the talk
    voting process, (potential) speakers cannot take part in the
    talk voting process, it seems.
    The race condition happens if someone wants to benefit from the
    discounted rate for a speaker *and* take part into the community voting.

    It could be argued that someone who submitted a talk should not take
    part into the voting process. In that case, there would be no race
    condition.

    Or he/she can decide to pay the full ticket price and take part to the
    voting process, giving up the discounted rate he would have access to if
    his/her talk is later accepted.

    This compromise has worked out pretty well in PyCon Italy[1], but maybe
    numbers are different in EuroPython.

    All in all, we are pretty flexible. If you buy a full ticket, do the
    voting, and later ask for a partial refund, we won't let you down. There
    is just no streamlined process for this, that's all.

    [1] In fact, in 2010 about half of the speakers bought the full ticket
    anyway to support the event.
