EuroScipy is finally open for registration
Registration for EuroScipy http://www.euroscipy.org//conference/euroscipy2010 is finally open
To register, go to the website http://www.euroscipy.org//conference/euroscipy2010, create an account, and you will see a /‘register to the conference’/ button on the left. Follow it to a page which presents a /’shoping cart’/. Simply submitting this information registers you to the conference, and on the left of the website, the button will now display /‘You are registered for the conference’/.
The registration fee is 50 euros for the conference, and 50 euros for the tutorial. Right now there is no payment system: you will be contacted later (in a week) with instructions for paying.
We apologize for such a late set up. We do realize this has come as an inconvenience to people.
*Do not wait to register: the number of people we can host is limited.*
An exciting program
Tutorials: from beginners to experts
We have two tutorial tracks:
* *Introductory tutorial* http://www.euroscipy.org/track/871: to get you to speed on scientific programming with Python. * *Advanced tutorial* http://www.euroscipy.org/track/872: experts sharing their knowledge on specific techniques and libraries.
We are very fortunate to have a top notch set of presenters.
Scientific track: doing new science in Python
Although the abstract submission is not yet over, We can say that we are going to have a rich set of talks, looking at the current submissions. In addition to the contributed talks, we have:
* *Keynote speakers* http://www.euroscipy.org/conference/euroscipy2010: Hans Petter Langtangen and Konrard Hinsen, two major player of scientific computing in Python. * *Lightning talks* http://www.euroscipy.org/talk/937: one hour will be open for people to come up and present in a flash an interesting project.
We are talking with the editors of a major scientific computing journal, and the odds are quite high that we will be able to publish a special issue on scientific computing in Python based on the proceedings of the conference. The papers will undergo peer-review independently from the conference, to ensure high quality of the final publication.
Call for papers
Abstract submission is still open, though not for long. We are soliciting contributions on scientific libraries and tools developed with Python and on scientific or engineering achievements using Python. These include applications, teaching, future development directions, and current research. See the call for papers http://www.euroscipy.org/card/euroscipy2010_call_for_papers.
*We are very much looking forward to passionate discussions about Python in science in Paris*
*Nicolas Chauvat and Gaël Varoquaux*
