Hi all,

The SciPy 2004 conference was a great success.  I personally enjoyed 
seeing all attendees and finding out about the activity that has been 
occurring with Python and Science.

As promised, all of the presentations that were submitted to 
abstracts at scipy.org are now available on-line under the 
conference-schedule page.

If anyone who hasn't submitted their presentation would like to, you 
still can.  As I was only able to attend the first day, I cannot comment 
on the entire conference.  However, what I saw was very encouraging.  
There continues to be a great amount of work being done in using Python 
for Scientific Computing and the remaining problems seems to be how to 
get the word out and increase the user base.

Many thanks are due to the presenters and the conference sponsors:
