EuroPython started in 2002
The European Python and Zope Conference EuroPython (or EPC for short) was started in 2002 as a community initiative by a team of Python enthusiast in Europe to bring together Python and Zope users and developers, as well as provide an opportunity for those who are interested in these technologies to learn more about them.
EuroPython 2002 was the first major entirely community driven and organized Python event world-wide.
Since then, EuroPython has come a long way is now the largest event in Europe for all topics where Python is used, e.g. web technologies, science, data science, numerics, high performance computing, robotics, networking, etc.
In 2004, the EuroPython Society was created as non-profit organization to provide a legal body for the organization, owning the trademark, managing the EuroPython organization and helping grow Python in Europe by offering grants and support for other conferences and events.

For conference organisers, the /SoftwareRequirements page looks at the issues around conference management software.
EuroPythonImprove is a start page for discussing how to improve the conference and the conference web site.
