Back in December last year I forwarded a call for proposals for workshops at the Lorentz center to this list, and a few of us subsequently put in an application to hold a Python Astronomy workshop.
We are now very happy to report that a "Python in Astronomy" workshop has been accepted and will take place at the Lorentz center in Leiden on 20-24 April 2015. This workshop aims to bring together researchers, Python developers, users, and educators, and will include presentations, tutorials, unconference sessions, and coding sprints.
In addition to sharing information about the state-of-the art of Python Astronomy packages, the workshop will also focus on improving interoperability between astronomical Python packages, providing training for new contributors, and developing a common set of educational materials for Python in Astronomy. The meeting is therefore not only aimed at current developers, but also users and educators.
A formal website and announcement will come later this year, but we wanted to share this with you now so that you can keep the dates free if you are interested in participating. In the mean time, you can already sign up to receive future announcements about the workshop at the following page:
Please feel free to spread the word to others that this is happening and get them to sign up to the announcement list.
We are very excited about the opportunity to hold this workshop, and we hope to see many of you there!
The organizing committee:
Thomas Robitaille Pauline Barmby Eric Jeschke Stuart Mumford Magnus Persson
