Dear all,

(Sorry if you receive this announcement multiple times.)

Registration for SciPy 2012, the eleventh annual Conference on Scientific
Computing with Python, is open! Go to
https://conference.scipy.org/scipy2012/register/index.php

We would like to remind you that the submissions for talks, posters and
tutorials are open *until April 30th, *which is just around the corner. For
more information see:

http://conference.scipy.org/scipy2012/tutorials.php
http://conference.scipy.org/scipy2012/talks/index.php

For talks or posters, all we need is an abstract.  Tutorials require more
significant preparation.  If you are preparing a tutorial, please send a
brief note to Jonathan Rocher (jrocher@enthought.com) to indicate your
intent.

We look forward to seeing many of you this summer.

Kind regards,

The SciPy 2012 organizers
