Hi Astropy Community,

I want to bring the SciPy 2020 conference to your attention:
https://www.scipy2020.scipy.org/. SciPy is one of my favorite yearly events
with great tutorials, talks, and members of the scientific Python
community. We're currently looking for talk, poster, and tutorial
submission proposals through February 11, 2020. See more dates and details

SciPy 2020 Communications Committee Co-chair

SciPy 2020, the 19th annual Scientific Computing with Python conference,
will be held July 6-12, 2020 in Austin, Texas. The annual SciPy Conference
brings together over 900 participants from industry, academia, and
government to showcase their latest projects, learn from skilled users and
developers, and collaborate on code development. The call for SciPy 2020
talks, posters, and tutorials is now open through February 11, 2020.

*Talks and Posters (July 8-10, 2020)*In addition to the general track, this
year will have the following specialized tracks, mini symposia, and

High Performance Python
Machine Learning and Data Science

*Mini Symposia*
Astronomy and Astrophysics
Biology and Bioinformatics
Earth, Ocean, Geo and Atmospheric Science
Materials Science

*Special Sessions*
Maintainers Track
SciPy Tools Plenary Session

For additional details and instructions, please see the conference website

*Tutorials (July 6-7, 2020)*
Tutorials should be focused on covering a well-defined topic in a hands-on
manner. We are looking for awesome techniques or packages, helping new or
advanced Python programmers develop better or faster scientific
applications. We encourage submissions to be designed to allow at least 50%
of the time for hands-on exercises even if this means the subject matter
needs to be limited. Tutorials will be 4 hours in duration. In your
tutorial application, you can indicate what prerequisite skills and
knowledge will be needed for your tutorial, and the approximate expected
level of knowledge of your students (i.e., beginner, intermediate,
advanced). Instructors of accepted tutorials will receive a stipend.

For examples of content and format, you can refer to tutorials from past
SciPy tutorial sessions (SciPy 2018
and some accepted submissions
