We welcome submissions of abstracts for live tutorials and shorter "notebook talks", both of which are intended to target the strengths of live, online communication. We also envisage to accept a few 10-ish minute lightning talks to allow authors to promote their own packages or developments (e.g., packages not yet ready for wide consumption).
We encourage the use of Jupyter notebooks, and help on how to set things up will be provided in due time.
A "notebook talk" should aim to be a 20-minute presentation + 10 minutes of discussion, focusing on new results, techniques, or software libraries. It is NOT required that the talk be only a Jupyter notebook; a standard set of slides is fine, but there should hopefully be a component of the presentation that ideally demonstrates the core subject of the talk with code that will hopefully lead to questions from the audience for the discussion section where further live demonstration can be conducted.
A tutorial should aim to be a 40- to 50-minute presentation + 10 minutes of discussion. It is meant as a pedagogical introduction to a technique, which is not necessarily novel and may not focus on only one software library, but helps to develop the audience's skills. It should additionally give example use cases that users and analysts in the audience might encounter.
