EuroSciPy 2009

We're pleased to announce the EuroSciPy 2009 Conference to be held in
Leipzig, Germany on July 25-26, 2009.

This is the second conference after the successful conference last
year. Again, EuroSciPy will be a venue for the European community of
users of the Python programming language in science.

Call for Participation

If you are a scientist using Python for your computational work, we'd
love to have you formally present your results, methods or
experiences. To apply to present a talk at this year's EuroSciPy,
please submit an abstract of your talk as a PDF, MS Word or plain text
file to mmueller at python-academy dot de. The deadline for abstract
submission is May 8, 2009. Papers and/or presentation slides are
acceptable and are due by June 15, 2009. Presentations will be allotted
30 minutes.


Registration is open. The registration fee is 100.00 € for early
registrants and will increase to 150.00 € for late registration after
June 15, 2009. Registration will include breakfast, snacks and lunch
for Saturday and Sunday.

Pre-Conference Courses

Would you like to learn Python or about some of the most used scientific
libraries in Python? Then the "Python Summer Course" [1] might be for
you. There are two parts to this course:

* a two-day course "Introduction to Python" [2] for people with
   programming experience in other languages and
* a three-day course "Python for Scientists and Engineers" [3] that
   introduces some of the most used Python tools for scientists and
   engineers such as NumPy, PyTables, and matplotlib

Both courses can be booked individually [4]. Of course, you can attend
the courses without registering for EuroSciPy.
