There is room for arranging sprints from Thursday 30 June to Sunday 3 July. By special arrangement, it is possible to have sprints before the conference and sprints that extend beyond 3 July. You can even have sprints in the downstairs cafeteria area during the conference.

If you plan to arrange a sprint, please send a mail to europython@python.org with a description of the sprint as well. We are going to need volunteers to help with some logistical issues. Read more at this URL: http://www.europython.org/sections/sprints_and_wiki/dates_for_sprinting

BOF Sessions

There are a couple of areas at the conference site that are suitable for BOFs. You can also place a BOF in the Student Union house.

Conference write-ups and blogs

Here's a collection of blogs about the conference.


There are many fun things you can do in Göteborg before and after the conference, and they get even more fun if you do them together with other conference participants.


Questions, hints and tips about where to stay, and requests for sharing.

Question: Is it possible to sleep at the university on air mattress and sleeping bag? This would be a nice and cheap alternative for poor students. Furthermore, this could provide a quite nice working atmosphere in the night. Is it possible to get a room for that purpose?

Response: No, it is strictly forbidden to stay overnight in any location within the university. There are nightguards ensuring that this policy is followed.

We are planning a BBQ Sunday evening at the SGS Veckobostäder. This is an informal affair, with the target time of 7PM. However, people might gather beforehand. The BBQ pits are in the middle of the SGS complex, near the '320's.

If you are interested, please email Aiste Kesminaite (aiste at pov dot lt) or Paul Everitt (paul at zope-europe dot org) and tell us what time you plan to arrive.

Map for getting to SGS. The Pit is in the center of the area.
