Our CFP guidelines are now public and the application will open in the coming days. We are seeking submissions for talks, short talks, tutorials, posters, and sprints.

Sponsored Projects

NumFOCUS aims to ensure that funding and resources are available to sustain projects in the scientific data stack over the long haul. One of the ways we accomplish this vision is through programs that provide support for open source scientific computing projects: our fiscal sponsorship program and our affiliation program.

Sponsorship

PyData could not happen without the support of its amazing sponsors. Are you interested in becoming a sponsor? See our sponsorship prospectus or contact us at [email protected].

FAQ

I’d like to sponsor the event, what are the options?

Reach out to [email protected] if you’re interested in sponsoring our event. We have opportunities to sponsor including bulk ticket sales and NumFOCUS corporate sponsorships.

Will the sessions be recorded?

Yes! The sessions will be recorded and recordings will be made available to attendees throughout the event. Details on the talks and tutorials being available to the public will come soon.

What platform will you use for this event?

We are yet to announce specific technologies for the event.

Will you charge for the event?

Yes.

Why charge attendees for a virtual event?

NumFOCUS is the non-profit organization that fiscally sponsors 33 Open Source Projects and organizes community-driven educational programs for users and developers of open source scientific tools. Donations from PyData conferences account for a significant portion of our annual operating budget and enable us to continue giving back to the open source community.

While there are no costs this year for a venue or catering, there are still costs associated with bringing the event online. We also need to continue paying fixed costs to keep NumFOCUS healthy so we can keep PyData alive, as well as continue supporting the open source community.

We hope you understand the difficult situation we are currently in and can support us during this time so that we can keep supporting you in the future.

What’s the conference’s hashtag?

Great question. #PyDataGlobal2020.
