The 2017 Python in Astronomy conference will be held on 8th - 12th May 2017 at the Lorentz Center in Leiden, the Netherlands. For more information see http://openastronomy.org/pyastro/2017/.
Python in Astronomy 2017 aims to bring a wide variety of people who currently use, develop or teach people about Python packages in the context of all forms of Astronomy. The conference will include presentations, tutorials, unconference sessions, and sprints. As well as building the community around astronomical uses of Python, the conference aims to improve collaboration and interoperability between Python packages and share knowledge on Python packages and techniques. It will also provide training and educational materials for users and developers of Python packages.Participant selection will be made with the goal of growingthe Python in Astronomy community and we particularly encourage requests to attend from junior astronomers and people who are new to contributing to open source software.
