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 Software Foundation
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

Covid-19/Coronavirus Situation in Switzerland

There are currently no entry restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. No proof of vaccination, recovery or testing is required for entry into Switzerland. In the city of Basel, Covid-19 is nearly inexistent with currently under 100 cases. It is possible there will be restrictions for people travelling from China to Switzerland, but this is not yet decided.

A Covid-19 test or proof of vaccination is not required to enter Switzerland, also there is no quarantine required.

We monitor the situation closely and will inform all in-person attendees/speakers if something changes.

In the worst case we will allow speakers and attendees to change to join remotely again, we are prepared to create a hybrid event again.

GeoPython Community Code of Conduct

Our code of conduct is based on the Python Community Code of Conduct by the Python Software Foundation (PSF).

The GeoPython 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, this Code of Conduct will help steer your interactions and keep Python a positive, successful, and growing community.

Our Community

Members of the GeoPython community are open, considerate, and respectful. Behaviours that reinforce these values contribute to a positive environment, and include:

  • Being open. Members of the community are open to collaboration, whether it's on maps, geodata, problems, or otherwise.
  • Focusing on what is best for the community. We're respectful of the processes set forth in the community, and we work within them.
  • Acknowledging time and effort. We're respectful of the volunteer efforts that permeate the GeoPython community. 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.
  • Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences. We're receptive to constructive comments and criticism, as the experiences and skill sets of other members contribute to the whole of our efforts.
  • Showing empathy towards other community members. We're attentive in our communications, whether in person or online, and we're tactful when approaching differing views.
  • Being considerate. Members of the community are considerate of their peers -- other (Geo-)Python users.
  • Being respectful. We're respectful of others, their positions, their skills, their commitments, and their efforts.
  • Gracefully accepting constructive criticism. When we disagree, we are courteous in raising our issues.
  • Using welcoming and inclusive language. 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.

Our Standards

Every member of our community has the right to have their identity respected. The GeoPython community is dedicated to providing a positive experience for everyone, regardless of age, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, nationality, race, or religion (or lack thereof), education, or socio-economic status.

Inappropriate Behavior

Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:

  • Harassment of any participants in any form
  • Deliberate intimidation, stalking, or following
  • Logging or taking screenshots of online activity for harassment purposes
  • Publishing others' private information, such as a physical or electronic address, without explicit permission
  • Violent threats or language directed against another person
  • Incitement of violence or harassment towards any individual, including encouraging a person to commit suicide or to engage in self-harm
  • Creating additional online accounts in order to harass another person or circumvent a ban
  • Sexual language and imagery in online communities or in any conference venue, including talks
  • Insults, put downs, or jokes that are based upon stereotypes, that are exclusionary, or that hold others up for ridicule
  • Excessive swearing
  • Unwelcome sexual attention or advances
  • Unwelcome physical contact, including simulated physical contact (eg, textual descriptions like "hug" or "backrub") without consent or after a request to stop
  • Pattern of inappropriate social contact, such as requesting/assuming inappropriate levels of intimacy with others
  • Sustained disruption of online community discussions, in-person presentations, or other in-person events
  • Continued one-on-one communication after requests to cease
  • Other conduct that is inappropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds

Community members asked to stop any inappropriate behavior are expected to comply immediately.


If a participant engages in behavior that violates this code of conduct, the GeoPython community Code of Conduct team may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the community and community events with no refund of event tickets.

Thank you for helping make this a welcoming, friendly community for everyone.
