(Sorry if you receive this announcement multiple times.)
Registration for SciPy 2012, the eleventh annual Conference on Scientific
Computing with Python, is open! Go to
We would like to remind you that the submissions for talks, posters and
tutorials are open *until April 30th, *which is just around the corner. For
more information see:
For talks or posters, all we need is an abstract. Tutorials require more
significant preparation. If you are preparing a tutorial, please send a
brief note to Jonathan Rocher (jrocher at enthought.com) to indicate your
We look forward to seeing many of you this summer.
