I am Abhishek from PyCon India team and really excited to annouce that we
have poster presentation this time in PyCon India 2019 !
Here is a chance to present a poster in PyCon India 2019 !
As announced earlier, the posters are yet another way of participating in
PyCon India 2019, which is happening on Oct 12-15, at Chennai. There are
two different poster types:
*Technical Posters* - for presenting projects and insights on various topics
*Community Posters* - for user groups / meetup groups to promote their work
Here are few good reasons to present a poster:
1. Posters offer the opportunity to engage with attendees interested in the
same subject and application as yourself. You might strike up a
conversation with someone about your poster that may lead to future
collaborations or even a job offer!
2. If you are new to conferences, or if you are intimidated about doing a
talk in front of huge audience, posters are for you. Posters are a great
way to test the waters, and can be stepping stone for your next talk at a
3. The entire conference attendees is available during the poster session,
as there are no other tracks scheduled in parallel. This makes it better
than the talk sessions, where there are multiple concurrent tracks, and
attendees can only attend one of them.
4. A poster presentation is a good way to disseminate your work,
particularly if your topic or project falls within a narrow field of
specialization. It also gives you the opportunity to actively engage with
others during the conference in a way that networking alone does not, since
by its very nature the poster defines the topic of conversation.
5. Another good reason to present a poster is that you can expect to
receive compliments on your work and critiques that can help you in the
future. An insightful, impartial discussion of your work by a peer can
often provide ideas for improving your work downstream.
In short, poster presentations provide value, both for attendees who
discuss your poster content with you, and for yourself because of the
opportunities highlighted above. If this has got you interested, head to
for more details and to
submit a poster proposal.
