EuroPython 2018: Getting ready

We are excited to announce the launch of the EuroPython 2018 website:


The EuroPython conference will take place in sunny Edinburgh, Scotland, this year, from July 23-29 2018.

It’s a great time of year to visit Edinburgh with 16 hours of daylight, and the festival season in full flow, so come and join us. This is just one week before the famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Turing Festival, so you can extend your stay a little longer in Edinburgh, or head for the Highlands to enjoy the amazing mountains and lochs.

EuroPython 2018 - The European Python Conference

Here’s an overview of what you can expect in Edinburgh:

  • We will start with Workshops and Training Sessions on Monday and Tuesday.
  • The main 3 conference days follow, packed with keynotes, talks, exhibition, help desks, interactive sessions, panels and poster sessions.
  • The two weekend days after the conference, July 28 and 29, are reserved for sprints (hackathons).

Overall, we will again have 7 days worth of great Python content, arranged in over 120 sessions, waiting for you.

The venue is the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, in central Edinburgh, just on the edge of the historic Old Town.
