I ran across the following conference announcement and thought, given the
amount of scientific programming within the Python community, that this
would be of some interest here. The following announcement appears at The conference, "Open Source/Open Science 99"
will be held October 2, 1999 at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long
Island, NY. The site also mentions plans for an MBONE broadcast for those
who cannot travel to Brookhaven.

I have no connection with the conference, so don't ask me questions. I am
merely passing the announcement along in hopes that this newsgroup will find
it interesting.

Open Source/Open Science is a unique conference in which, for the first
time, scientists, who rely heavily on the Internet and many open source
projects to advance their research, are brought together with some of the
leading figures in the Open Source community. In this environment, the
conference plans to achieve the following goals.

Give scientists a chance to learn about new Open Source projects which could
potentially benefit their research.

Show the Open Source community the science applications to which Open Source
software has been applied in an effort to stimulate more Open Source

Stimulate Open Source scientific projects amongst scientists, which
specificly address the data analysis needs of researchers.

Brookhaven National Laboratory, and its scientists, would like to invite any
and all people who are interested in science, software, the Internet or who
want to get a glimpse of the evolutionary methods of science and technology,
to attend.
