PyCon Argentina is organized and run by volunteers from the Python community. Anyone can help, and all help is very much appreciated. If you blog, please let your readers know about PyCon. A blog badge is a nice way to enhance such a post: http://ar.pycon.org/2009/helping/publicize/
PyCon Argentina is a free (as in beer) community conference. We keep the costs low to make PyCon Argentina accessible to the greatest range of community members possible. This means that PyCon Argentina cannot offer payment to conference speakers. Conference registration, accommodations, and transportation are the responsibility of the speakers.
However, financial aid will be available, and speakers who pay their own way are encouraged to apply. Giving a talk is a great rationale when requesting aid. If you require financial aid in order to attend PyCon, please note it in your proposal and be sure to apply.
The local PostgreSQL users group (ArPUG) may have a physical space for community and promotional purposes. Please contact us if you have related materials or ideas about this.
