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
The link is
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:
