Our Selection Process


In order to create the most valuable talks and workshops line-up for the conference we follow this process:


  1. All proposals reviews are anonymized, that way we avoid the bias towards the submitter.
  2. All proposals are reviewed and voted by our Reviewers Team.
  3. The best-rated proposals are de-anonymized to review the speaker's profile, this is made by the PyCon Colombia's Talks Committee.
  4. The Committee decides the final line-up.

We are really excited to get a lot more excellent submissions than we have speaking slots. This process helps us to get the best proposals by trying to avoid the bias to the speaker profile.

In order to create an environment that is safe and comfortable for all our attendees and staff members and to make sure everybody enjoys the conference. We have written this code of conduct . We hope you read, understand and comply with it during the conference and in your proposal and talk
