I went to this in 2016 and had a great time. It would be great if we could get some yt representation at the next meeting in 2018.
---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: *Matthew Craig* firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Monday, September 18, 2017 Subject: [AstroPy] Python in Astronomy 2018 To: Astronomical Python mailing list email@example.com
The 2018 Python in Astronomy conference will be held on 30th Apr - 4th May 2018 at the Center for Computational Astrophysics at the Flatiron Institute in New York, New York. For more information see http://openastronomy.org/ pyastro/2018/.
Python in Astronomy 2018 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 enhancing the 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. Effort will also be made to select participants who have a demonstrated potential to contribute meaningfully to the Python in Astronomy infrastructure via providing educational materials, documentation, and/or coding. This conference is intended to be neither an introduction to Python bootcamp nor only for expert-level Python developers.
If you are interested in attending and/or have any questions about the conference, please use this form: https://goo.gl/forms/47eYzrWsKPqIPTL42
Further, please nominate people who you think should might benefit from attending and contributing to Python in Astronomy 2018 using this form: https://goo.gl/forms/47eYzrWsKPqIPTL42
Applications from interested participants will open by Oct 16, 2017; the link to the application form will be available at the conference web site, http://openastronomy.org/pyastro/2018/
