September 21-22, 2020





After a successful GeoPython 2019 - with participants from over 40 countries - we are proud to announce the first Python Machine Learning Conference 2020 - the Python conference with the primary topic "Machine Learning", held together with the 5th GeoPython Conference.

Due to the current Situation with Covid-19 we decided to switch to an online conference. Most talks are during daytime European Timezones, we also have some earlier talks for Asian Timezones and later talks for Americas Timezones.

About the organisation team
The University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland FHNW ranks amongst Switzerland's leading and most innovative universities of applied sciences. It is composed of nine Schools covering Applied Psychology, Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geomatics, Art and Design, Life Sciences, Music, Teacher Education, Social Work, Engineering and Business. The modern campuses are in northwestern Switzerland, near the borders with Germany and France and in the immediate vicinity of the cities of Basel and Zurich, as well as of national and international companies.

The PyBasel Association is the local Python User Group Northwestern Switzerland. The user group offers space and opportunity for all those interested in Python to share knowledge and learn about Python. The participants hold talks, share news, and provide help for both Python newbies and professionals.

Online Event
The conference is online. We will provide more info closer to the conference. It will work on MacOS, Windows, Linux, and most Tablets, and Smartphones.

Online Setup

We're using Discord as chat client and zoom webinar for live presentations.
The advantage of zoom is that it works on all platforms and we're connected to the Zoom Global Network via data centers all over the world.

Please note that Zoom Webinar is not the same as Zoom Meeting. For conference setups we allow a large number of people to join and attendees don't have their microphone or cameras enabled - only speakers.
For that reason we also have "Discord" as an extensive chat.

Step 1: Download Discord: Download Discord Client at

Step 2: Join the GeoPython/PyML Channel:

Step 3: Register in the channel registration-desk using your ticket id. Then you get access to other channels

Step 4: Go to the channel streaming-links to get the link to the live steams.

The mission of the Python Software Foundation is to promote, protect, and advance the Python programming language, and to support and facilitate the growth of a diverse and international community of Python programmers. The majority of the PSF's work is focused on empowering and supporting people within the Python community. The PSF has active grant programs that support sprints, conferences, meetups, user groups, and Python development efforts all over the world. In addition, the PSF underwrites and runs PyCon US, the primary Python community conference. Being part of the PSF means being part of the Python community. Recently we changed the PSF to an open membership organization, so that everyone who uses and supports Python can join. To learn more, visit

The EuroPython Society (EPS) is a Swedish non-profit organization which organizes EuroPython conferences, supports the Python community in Europe and holds the rights to the EuroPython conference series and trademarks.
The EPS was formed in 2004, with the mission to turn EuroPython into a successful Python conference series for the years to come. In 2016, we have extended our mission to further the use of the programming language Python in Europe and organize events centered around the programming language Python to support this.

The Python Software Association represents the interests of users of the open-source programming language Python in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. More information can be found on the website:

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.
