Call for talks and posters                                                      
==========================                                                      
                                                                                
We are soliciting talks and posters that discuss topics related to              
scientific computing using Python. These include applications, teaching,        
future development directions, and research. We welcome contributions           
from the industry as well as the academic world. Indeed, industrial             
research and development as well academic research face the challenge of        
mastering IT tools for exploration, modeling and analysis.  We look             
forward to hearing your recent breakthroughs using Python!

- We solicit proposals in the form of a **one-page long abstract**.             
- Submissions whose main purpose is to promote a commercial product or          
  service will be refused.                                                      
- All accepted proposals must be presented at the EuroSciPy conference          
  by at least one author.                                                       
                                                                                
Abstracts should be detailed enough for the reviewers to appreciate the         
interest of the work for a wide audience. Examples of abstracts can be          
found on last year's webpage www.euroscipy.org/track/3992 (talks tab).
