PyCon Australia 2013 will be hosting two one-day miniconfs on Friday 5
July before the main conference proceedings kick off on Saturday 6
July. Miniconfs are events that focus on a specific community that
relies heavily on Python, and allows practitioners in those
communities to explore those topics in a much deeper way than the main
PyCon conference can allow.

This year, we're featuring the first ever DjangoCon AU, presented by
the Django Software Foundation, as well as a miniconf for the
OpenStack cloud platform, presented by Aptira.

Both miniconfs have recently announced their call for proposals, so
read on to find out more about how you can submit your talks!

== OpenStack Day ==

A chance for developers and users of one of the most important new
Python-based open source projects, the OpenStack day is calling for
proposals for short talks, in-depth discussions, and lightning talks
about all aspects of the OpenStack cloud platform.

If you are a developer working on the OpenStack code base, a service
provider, vendor, university or corporation deploying OpenStack or a
software developer or integrator building apps for deployment on
OpenStack then this Miniconf is for you!

The CFP for the OpenStack Miniconf is open now and closes on 15 April,
2013. To submit a presentation, visit the OpenStack Miniconf CFP site
at http://aptira.wufoo.com/forms/pyconau2013-openstack-miniconf-call-for-presenters/

== DjangoCon AU ==

DjangoCon AU is running for the first time as part of PyCon Australia
2013. This miniconf lets developers spend a day diving deeply into the
internals, new features, and development practices of the web
framework they rely upon.

DjangoCon AU is running its call for proposals as part of the PyCon
Australia CFP, with all Django-related proposals being considered as
part of the programme for PyCon Australia or DjangoCon AU. Proposals
close on Friday 5 April, 2013.
