SciPy 2012, the eleventh annual Conference on Scientific Computing with
Python, will be held July 16–21, 2012, in Austin, Texas.

At this conference, novel scientific applications and libraries related to
data acquisition, analysis, dissemination and visualization 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.  Following
the main conference will be two days of coding sprints.

We invite you to give a talk or present a poster at SciPy 2012.

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 in solving scientific or computational problems;
   - high performance, parallel and GPU computing with Python;
   - use of Python in science education.

Specialized Tracks

Two specialized tracks run in parallel to the main conference:

   - High Performance Computing with Python
   Whether your algorithm is distributed, threaded, memory intensive or
   latency bound, Python is making headway into the problem.  We are looking
   for performance driven designs and applications in Python.  Candidates
   include the use of Python within a parallel application, new architectures,
   and ways of making traditional applications execute more efficiently.

   - Visualization
   They say a picture is worth a thousand words--we’re interested in both!
    Python provides numerous visualization tools that allow scientists to show
   off their work, and we want to know about any new tools and techniques out
   there.  Come show off your latest graphics, whether it’s an old library
   with a slick new feature, a new library out to challenge the status quo, or
   simply a beautiful result.

Domain-specific Mini-symposia

Mini-symposia on the following topics are also being organized:

   - Computational bioinformatics
   - Meteorology and climatology
   - Astronomy and astrophysics
   - Geophysics

Talks, papers and posters

We invite you to take part by submitting a talk or poster abstract.
 Instructions are on the conference website:

Selected talks are included as papers in the peer-reviewed conference
proceedings, to be published online.


Tutorials will be given July 16–17.  We invite instructors to submit
proposals for half-day tutorials on topics relevant to scientific computing
with Python.  See

for information about submitting a tutorial proposal.  To encourage
tutorials of the highest quality, the instructor (or team of instructors)
is given a $1,000 stipend for each half day tutorial.

Student/Community Scholarships

We anticipate providing funding for students and for active members of the
SciPy community who otherwise might not be able to attend the conference.

for scholarship application guidelines.
