The SciPy 2004 conference was a great success. I personally enjoyed seeing all attendees and finding out about the activity that has been occurring with Python and Science.
As promised, all of the presentations that were submitted to email@example.com are now available on-line under the conference-schedule page.
The link is
If anyone who hasn't submitted their presentation would like to, you still can. As I was only able to attend the first day, I cannot comment on the entire conference. However, what I saw was very encouraging. There continues to be a great amount of work being done in using Python for Scientific Computing and the remaining problems seems to be how to get the word out and increase the user base.
Many thanks are due to the presenters and the conference sponsors:

Dear Python enthusiasts,
Please forgive me for this late request, but I'm wondering if there are any SciPy 2004 presenters (or others) who would like to present their work at a workshop on High Productivity Python. This workshop will be held on October 12 as part the LACSI 2004 symposium. LACSI symposia are held each year in Santa Fe (see http://lacsi.lanl.gov/symposium/ for more details).
If you are interested, please send me a title and an abstract right away.
Thanks, Craig Rasmussen
