[AstroPy] SciPy 2011 Call for Papers
Wed Mar 23 07:56:17 CDT 2011
SciPy 2011 <http://conference.scipy.org/scipy2011/index.php>, the 10th
Python in Science conference, will be held July 11 - 16, 2011, in Austin,
At this conference, novel applications and breakthroughs made in the pursuit
of science using Python are presented. Attended by leading figures from both
academia and industry, it is an excellent opportunity to experience the
cutting edge of scientific software development.
The conference is preceded by two days of tutorials, during which community
experts provide training on several scientific Python packages.
*We'd like to invite you to consider presenting at SciPy 2011.*
The list of topics that are appropriate for the conference includes (but is
not limited to):
* new Python libraries for science and engineering;
* applications of Python to the solution of scientific or computational
* high performance, parallel and GPU computing with Python;
* use of Python in science education.
This year we also have two specialized tracks. They will be run concurrent
to the main conference.
*Python in Data Science
Chair: Peter Wang, Streamitive, Inc.*
This track focuses on the advantages and challenges of applying Python in
the emerging field of "data science". This includes a breadth of
technologies, from wrangling realtime data streams from the social web,
machine learning and semantic analysis, to workflow and repository
management for large datasets.
*Python and Core Technologies
Chair: Anthony Scopatz, Enthought, Inc.*
In an effort to broaden the scope of SciPy and to engage the larger
community of software developers, we are pleased to introduce the _Python
Core Technologies_ track. Talks will cover subjects that are not directly
related to science and engineering, yet nonetheless affect scientific
computing. Proposals on the Python language, visualization toolkits, web
frameworks, education, and other topics are appropriate for this session.
We invite you to take part by submitting a talk abstract on the
