The registration fee is 100.00€ for early registrants and will increase to 150.00€ for late registration (after June 15).

About EuroSciPy --------------- EuroSciPy is designed to complement the popular SciPy Conferences which have been held for the last 7 years at Caltech (the 2008 SciPy Conference in the U.S. will be held the week of August 19-24). Similarly, the EuroSciPy Conference provides a unique opportunity to learn and affect what is happening in the realm of scientific computing with Python. Attendees will have the opportunity to review the available tools and how they apply to specific problems. By providing a forum for developers to share their Python expertise with the wider commercial, academic, and research communities, this conference fosters collaboration and facilitates the sharing of software components, techniques and a vision for high level language use in scientific computing. Typical presentations include general python use in the sciences, as well as NumPy and SciPy usage for general problem solving. Beyond the excellent talks, there are inter- session discussions that prove stimulating and helpful. Registration will include breakfast, snacks and lunch for Saturday and Sunday.
Please pass this announcement along to any other relevant contacts.
Many Thanks, Mike Müller
