Euroscipy 2012, the 5th European meeting on Python in Science

It is our pleasure to announce the conference Euroscipy 2012, that will
be held in **Brussels**, **August 23-27**, at the Université Libre de
Bruxelles (ULB, Solbosch Campus).

The EuroSciPy meeting is a cross-disciplinary gathering focused on the
use and development of the Python language in scientific research and
industry. This event strives to bring together both users and developers
of scientific tools, as well as academic research and state of the art


Main topics

- Presentations of scientific tools and libraries using the
 Python language, including but not limited to:
 - vector and array manipulation
 - parallel computing
 - scientific visualization
 - scientific data flow and persistence
 - algorithms implemented or exposed in Python
 - web applications and portals for science and engineering.
- Reports on the use of Python in scientific achievements or ongoing
- General-purpose Python tools that can be of special interest to the
 scientific community.


There will be two tutorial tracks at the conference, an introductory one,
to bring up to speed with the Python language as a scientific tool, and
an advanced track, during which experts of the field will lecture on
specific advanced topics such as advanced use of numpy, paralllel
computing, advanced testing...

Keynote Speaker: David Beazley

This year, we are very happy to welcome David Beazley
(http://www.dabeaz.com) as our keynote speaker. David Beazley created
SWIG, a software development tool that connects programs written in C and
C++ with a variety of high-level programming languages such as Python.
He has also authored the acclaimed Python Essential Reference.

Call for talks and posters

We are soliciting talks and posters that discuss topics related to
scientific computing using Python. These include applications, teaching,
future development directions, and research. We welcome contributions
from the industry as well as the academic world. Indeed, industrial
research and development as well academic research face the challenge of
mastering IT tools for exploration, modeling and analysis.  We look
forward to hearing your recent breakthroughs using Python!

Submission guidelines
- We solicit talk proposals in the form of a **one-page long abstract**.
- Submissions whose main purpose is to promote a commercial product or
 service will be refused.
- All accepted proposals must be presented at the EuroSciPy conference
 by at least one author.

Abstracts should be detailed enough for the reviewers to appreciate the
interest of the work for a wide audience. Examples of abstracts can be
found on last year's webpage www.euroscipy.org/track/3992 (talks tab).

The one-page long abstracts are for conference planing and selection
purposes only.
