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.
