About the location
Basel lies in the heart of Europe, on both banks of the Rhine. The city is the centre of the idyllic border triangle of France, Germany and Switzerland – lying between the Swiss Jura, Germany’s Black Forest and the Vosges in Alsace.
Impressions of Basel

Basel is easy to get to. Only a 10-minute drive from the city centre, Basel’s EuroAirport is served by a number of international airlines. Together with neighbouring Zurich Airport, it enjoys connections to all European airports and to more than 200 intercontinental destinations. Located in the centre of Europe, Basel is a major transportation hub. Its three railway stations not only offer excellent connections to far and wide but are also all situated in the very heart of the city.

Sponsors

The GeoPython 2022 conference sincerely thanks our sponsors for supporting our mission and making the conference possible!

Even for online conferences we need sponsors to make this possible. Streaming videos is not that simple and needs dedicated servers, administrators and moderators.

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.

jgs
Journal of Geodetic Science (JGS) is a peer-reviewed, electronic-only journal that publishes original, high-quality research on topics broadly related to Geodesy. JGS is indexed in all major citation databases, including Scopus, Google Scholar, and Web of Science. The journal focuses on theoretical and application papers. The journal aims to become a premier source of knowledge and a worldwide-recognized platform of exchange for scientists of different disciplinary origins and backgrounds (e.g., Surveyors, Geodesists, and Geophysicists). The journal publishes geodetic research from a broad range of topics and approaches, including Geodetic Networks, Deformation analysis, Adjustment theory and application of mathematical statistics, Satellite Geodesy, Physical Geodesy, Geodynamics, Geometric Geodesy, and more. However, we will accept both theoretical and empirical contributions in all subfields of Geodesy as long as they contribute in a broad sense to the core theme.

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:

Open
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.

Considerate
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.

Respectful
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.
