We invite authors to submit papers describing new and useful
applications and tools that use Python. In addition to traditional
research papers, we have a special interest in papers that describe
approaches to practical programming problems and experience reports
that provide lessons for Python programmers.

Specific paper topics include, but are not limited to:

-Experience with large systems written in Python or that use Python as
    scripting or glue language  
-Internet applications, including Web content and administration,
    network programming, distributed objects (ILU)
-Scientific, engineering, and numeric applications
-Integration with other languages and systems, including Java, CORBA,
    COM, embedded systems,  etc.
-Python on Windows, including Active Scripting, NT system administration
-Extension modules and new developments for the core language
-Applications and systems using JPython
-Programming patterns and OO design strategies
-Software engineering techniques, practical programming advice, and
    tools for programmers  
-GUI programming
-Database and ODBC applications
-Use of Python in education

Papers that describe applications must balance the need to appeal to
Python programmers at-large against the need for application-specific
details. Authors should focus on presenting issues and techniques that
have wider relevance to the audience, but should also provide enough
explanatory material to make application-specific issues
understandable to a wider audience.

Papers will be judged on the quality and quantity of technical
content, the presentation and writing, and their relevance to the
Python community.


Paper submissions should be approximately 6 to 12 single-space,
8.5"x11" pages (about 3000-6000 words) including an abstract. Papers
must be original works not previously published or submitted for
publication elsewhere. The conference proceedings will be made
available online and in printed form. Authors will need to provide
postscript and HTML versions of their final papers.

We prefer initial papers submissions via electronic mail, to

following formats: HTML (single page with no external links),
Microsoft Word, Postscript, or PDF. Regardless of format, be sure that
it can be viewed and printed on a wide variety of systems (avoid
unusual fonts and browser-specific tags). See the guidelines for
authors for more information about how to submit your paper:

If you intend to submit a paper, please sent a short email describing


We will have one day of tutorials on the first day of the conference
which will be divided into morning and afternoon sessions. Our goal is
to provide three simultaneous tracks.  Generally, tutorials are
half-day sessions. However, we will consider requests from presenters
for two back-to-back sessions if the topic is particularly meaty.

Tutorial proposals should be submitted by electronic mail to

an abstract that is aproximately one page by June 29, 1998. In
addition to this one page, an outline of the tutorial topics (and
subtopics) and estimated time for each, should accompany the abstract.

For more information about submitting a tutorial, see:


The poster and demo session is new at the conference this year. Its
goal is to highlight work that is more interesting to see than to talk
about and to encourage interaction between presenters and conference

Demonstrations provide an opportunity to display interesting
applications that are written in Python, use Python as a glue
language, or that can be used to develop Python
programs. Demonstrations of commercial products of interest to the
Python community are particularly encouraged.

Posters provide an opportunity to present material in a less formal
environment than the papers session. They are ideal for preliminary
results and material that is more suited to interactive discussion in
small groups than to a more formal presentation to a large group.

If you intend to submit an abstract, please send a short email
