The deadline for submissions to PyCon DC 2003 appears to have been too tight
for many authors. While some promised submissions have arrived, several have
not even though the original deadline of 15 December has passed.

Rather than exclude promising papers the organizing committee has decided to
extend the deadline for submissions. Accordingly, the new schedule for
proposals is as follows:

    Submission Deadline: January 15, 2003
    Notification of Acceptance: January 31, 2003
    Final Versions Due: March 10, 2003
    Conference Dates: March 26-28, 2003 [unchanged]

Authors who have already submitted abstracts are invited to resubmit if they
feel that the original deadline had an adverse effect on the quality of
their submissions.

Please make any appropriate media, mailing lists and newsgroups aware of
this announcement. Enquiries should be sent in the first instance to
pycondc-2003@python.org. Information about PyCon DC 2003 is available at the
following URLs:


The latter URL, a Wiki page, can also be used to communicate with the
conference organizers. This is *your* conference: tell us what *you* want to
see in it.
