The deadline for submitting abstracts to the Scipy conference was tonight.
In order to give you more time to submit excellent abstracts, the review
committee is extending the deadline to Monday (June 30th), and will work
hastily to get all of them reviewed in time for the program announcement,
on Thursday July 3rd.


The SciPy 2008 Conference will be held 21-22 August 2008 at the
California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California. SciPy is a
scientific computing package, written in the Python language. It is
widely used in research, the industry and academia.

The program features tutorials, contributed papers, lightning talks, and
bird-of-a-feather sessions. We are soliciting talks and accompanying
papers (either formal academic or magazine-style articles) that discuss
topics which center around scientific computing using Python. These
include applications, teaching, future development directions and
research. A collection of peer-reviewed articles will be published as
part of the proceedings.

Proposals for talks are submitted as extended abstracts. There are two
categories of talks:
Lightning talks

These talks are 10 minutes in duration. An abstract of between 300 and
700 words should describe the topic and motivate its relevance to
scientific computing. Lightning talks do not require an accompanying
article (although, if submitted, these will still be published).
Paper presentations

These talks are 35 minutes in duration (including questions). A one page
abstract of no less than 500 words (excluding figures and references)
should give an outline of the final paper. Papers are due two weeks
before the conference, and may be in a formal academic style, or in a
more relaxed magazine-style format.

If you wish to present a talk at the conference, please create an account
on the website http://conference.scipy.org. You may then submit an
abstract by logging in, clicking on your profile and following the "
Submit an abstract " link.

Gaël, on behalf on the SciPy08 organizing committee.
