Submission Format

Initial proposals should ideally be 500 to 2000 words long, in a format similar to the USENIX extended abstract sample on this page. The intention is to encourage proposals that can be turned into full-blown papers relatively easily, and of course completed papers are perfectly acceptable submissions. ASCII format is preferred, with HTML as a secondary alternative. Diagrams will be acceptable in PNG, JPEG and GIF formats. If you have any queries about submission, or if you would like to discuss the possibility of submitting in a different format or style, please send mail to the conference organizers at pycondc-2003 at python dot org.

Submission Address

Submissions should be sent by email to pycondc-2003 at python dot org in the first instance. Enquiries about subject matter and presentation format should be sent to the same address.
