SciPy 2018, the 17th annual Scientific Computing with Python conference,
will be held July 9-15, 2018 in Austin, Texas. The annual SciPyConference
brings together over 700 participants from industry, academia, and
government to showcase their latest projects, learn from skilled users and
developers, and collaborate on code development. The call for abstracts
for SciPy 2018 for talks, posters and tutorials is now open. The new
extended deadline for submissions is February 15, 2018.

There will also be a SciPy Tools Plenary Session each day with 2 to 5
minute updates on tools and libraries.

*Tutorials (July 9-10, 2018)*

Tutorials should be focused on covering a well-defined topic in a hands-on
manner. We are looking for awesome techniques or packages, helping new or
advanced Python programmers develop better or faster scientific
applications. We encourage submissions to be designed to allow at least 50%
of the time for hands-on exercises even if this means the subject matter
needs to be limited. Tutorials will be 4 hours in duration. In your
tutorial application, you can indicate what prerequisite skills and
knowledge will be needed for your tutorial, and the approximate expected
level of knowledge of your students (i.e., beginner, intermediate,
advanced). Instructors of accepted tutorials will receive a stipend.
