DjangoCon Europe, 2nd to 7th June 2015, in Cardiff, Wales. 6 days of talks, tutorials and code.

Accessibility

We want this DjangoCon to set the highest standards for accessibility, and to ensure that we do not inadvertently exclude anyone from participating fully in the event. If you require further information or have a request concerning something not mentioned here, please get in touch, and we’ll do our best.

Mobility restrictions

All of the venues we’ll be using are wheelchair accessible and have:

  • step-free access from the street and car-parks
  • step-free access to all auditoriums, theatres and halls
  • toilets suitable for wheelchair users

Please contact us about any mobility assistance needs you may have during your stay in Cardiff.

Visual impairments

Preferred seating will be provided and reserved for the visually-impaired. Please contact us about any lighting requirements you may have, and we will do our best to meet them.

Similarly, if you would benefit from having a close-up display of presenters’ slides and screens, or from the provision of any assistive technology, just let us know.
Guide dogs are welcome at all venues for the conference and social events.

Hearing impairments

All talks on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be held in auditoriums with induction loops for hearing aid users.

In addition, all talks on those days will feature simultaneous speech-to-text transcription, which will also be used for subtitling the conference videos that are subsequently published.

On request, we will provide a British Sign Language interpreter (at no charge) for the duration of the conference to any Deaf attendees, to help them participate more fully in discussions and social events.

Please note that while BSL shares significant similarity with Auslan and New Zealand Sign Language, it is quite distinct from American Sign Language. However, we will do our best to meet any request for other sign language interpreters - so please just ask.

Please note: some of the rooms used for workshops and tutorials on Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday may lack wheelchair access, induction loops or present other obstacles for some attendees. If this might affect you, please let us know, so that we can make arrangements to hold the sessions that interest you in appropriately accessible locations.

Crèche

We will provide a crèche, staffed by registered and qualified childminders, at no extra cost, during conference hours.

You will need to register well in advance for the crèche.

Children will be welcome at all appropriate conference events including meals (advance registration required), during breaks for refreshments and in the audience at talks.

Dietary requirements

We aim to meet all dietary requirements. You will be able to specify these when purchasing your ticket.

Quiet room

We will provide a clearly-marked designated quiet room at all venues. This room is intended to be a calm and quiet place for anyone who needs to have a break from the bustle of the conference, and will not be used for socialising.

Is something missing?

Have we neglected something you need, or is there something not mentioned here that would make your attendance possible, or improve your experience of the event? Please let us know. We’ll do what can to provide it.
