Hello,

The CFP for SciPy India 2012, to be held in IIT Bombay from December
27-29 is open.  Please spread the word!

Scipy.in is a conference providing opportunities to spread the use of
the Python programming language in the Scientific Computing community
in India. It provides a unique opportunity to interact with the "Who's
who" of the Python for Scientific Computing fraternity and learn,
understand, participate, and contribute to Scientific Computing using
Python. Attendees of the conference and participants of the sprints
planned will be able to access and review the tools available. They
will also be able to learn domain-specific applications and how the
tools apply to a plethora of application problems.

One of the goals of the conference is to combine education,
engineering, and science with computing through the medium of
Python. This conference also aims to spread the use of Python for
Scientific Computing in various fields and among different
communities.
