The conference committee is extending the deadline for abstract
submission for the Scipy conference 2009 one week. 

On Friday July 3th, at midnight Pacific, we will turn off the abstract
submission on the conference site. Up to then, you can modify the
already-submitted abstract, or submit new abstracts.

Submitting Papers

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:

    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. Proceeding papers
are due two weeks after the conference, and may be in a formal academic
style, or in a more relaxed magazine-style format.

    Rapid presentations

        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.

In addition, there will be an open session for lightning talks during
which any attendee willing to do so is invited to do a
couple-of-minutes-long presentation.

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.

Submission Guidelines

    * Submissions should be uploaded via the online form.
    * Submissions whose main purpose is to promote a commercial product
      or service will be refused.
    * All accepted proposals must be presented at the SciPy conference by
      at least one author.
    * Authors of an accepted proposal can provide a final paper for
      publication in the conference proceedings. Final papers are limited
      to 7 pages, including diagrams, figures, references, and
      appendices. The papers will be reviewed to help ensure the
      high-quality of the proceedings.
