In particular for speakers: slide contents and spoken material should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate, and neither are language or imagery that denigrate or demean people based on race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, physical appearance, disability, or body size.**

We will make every effort to provide accommodations for speakers and attendees of all abilities&mdash;all we ask is that you let us know so we can prepare accordingly.
 

	
 
North Bay Python is a conference in support of the local programmer community outside of the core San Francisco Bay Area tech scene. We aim to feature a mix of local and non-local speakers to offer a program with broad appeal. **All speakers will receive complimentary registration to the conference, and requests for further financial compensation to assist with travel will be considered on a case-by-case basis independent of the proposal's merits.**
 

	
 
## Talk formats
 

	
 
**Most of the talk slots will be short** approximately 25 to 30 minutes, including Q&A. If your ideas would benefit from a longer slot, please explain in your submission how you would use the additional time.

**We are a single track conference. This means that your talk needs to hold the attention of beginners to experienced developers alike.**
 

	
 
This doesnt mean that every talk needs to be a beginners talk: if youre talking about advanced concepts, people who are new to Python – or new to your library – should come away excited about the possibilities, and know how to learn the concepts that they need to get there.
