After a successful online GeoPython 2020 - with participants from over 30 countries - we are proud to announce GeoPython 2021, another online edition of the conference.
With the safety of our community in mind the decision was made to hold the event as an online virtual conference again.
We intend to return to an in-person face-to-face format in Basel, Switzerland in 2022.

- 90 minutes workshops (tutorials)
Talks/workshops can be live at the event or prerecorded. Free conference tickets for speakers.

The conference is non-profit. Any profits go to the finacial-aid programme of the next physical conference, hopefully in 2022. If you would like to support GeoPython, please consider getting a higher priced ticket. We assure you that your contribution will be put to good use. Thank you!
Financial assistance is provided, so those who might otherwise not be able to attend can. We actively encourage people to apply for financial aid and also welcome applications from students. While we wish we could give grants to everyone who applies, the number of grants are limited.
Apply for financial aid
The online setup of GeoPython 2020 worked quite good. It will not be the same - for example we will not use zoom webinar anymore - but a quite similar setup, just better.
The video stream will work on SmartTVs, Phones, Tablets and web browsers.
We will also have a dedicated chat for social interactions again.
Here is a screenshot of the chat Window from online GeoPython 2020. We used Discord.
We had different channels for technical and social discussions (screenshot blurred for data protection). Chat was very active. Some people even reported they had more social interactions than at traditional conferences.
Python Community Code of Conduct
All attendees of the conference must agree and respect the "Python Community Code of Conduct":
The Python community is made up of members from around the globe with a diverse set of skills, personalities, and experiences. It is through these differences that our community experiences great successes and continued growth. When you're working with members of the community, we encourage you to follow these guidelines which help steer our interactions and strive to keep Python a positive, successful, and growing community.
A member of the Python community is:
Members of the community are open to collaboration, whether it's on PEPs, patches, problems, or otherwise. We're receptive to constructive comment and criticism, as the experiences and skill sets of other members contribute to the whole of our efforts. We're accepting of all who wish to take part in our activities, fostering an environment where anyone can participate and everyone can make a difference.
Members of the community are considerate of their peers -- other Python users. We're thoughtful when addressing the efforts of others, keeping in mind that often times the labor was completed simply for the good of the community. We're attentive in our communications, whether in person or online, and we're tactful when approaching differing views.
Members of the community are respectful. We're respectful of others, their positions, their skills, their commitments, and their efforts. We're respectful of the volunteer efforts that permeate the Python community. We're respectful of the processes set forth in the community, and we work within them. When we disagree, we are courteous in raising our issues.
Overall, we're good to each other. We contribute to this community not because we have to, but because we want to. If we remember that, these guidelines will come naturally.
