SciPy 2009 Conference (August 18-23, 2009)

I am pleased to announce that the 8th Annual Python in Science Conference will be held August 18-23, 2009 at Caltech in Pasadena, CA.
  • Tutorials (Tuesday, August 18 - Wednesday, August 19)
  • Conference (Thursday, August 20 - Friday, August 21)
  • Sprints (Saturday, August 22 - Sunday, August 23)
This conference provides a unique opportunity to learn and affect what is happening in the realm of scientific computing with Python. Attendees have the opportunity to review the available tools and how they apply to specific problems. By providing a forum for developers to share their Python expertise with the wider commercial, academic, and research communities, this conference fosters collaboration and facilitates the sharing of software components, techniques and a vision for high level language use in scientific computing.

As one of the thousands who admire SciPy from afar and will probably be unable to attend, I would love to be able to see the conference in absentia through online video and links to presentation materials.

PyCon 2009 is the reference standard for making a conference live on after it ends and making conference reach far broader than the people who were able to attend in person. All the PyCon 2009 presentations, and most of the tutorials, as well as the many excellent Lightning Talks were captured for posterity and are now visible at PyCon.blip.tv. You can hover over the conference schedule at us.pycon.org/2009/conference/schedule/ to get links to slides, papers, code, etc. for each of the scheduled talks.

If SciPy could do something similar, many of us unable to attend in person would benefit greatly! The PyCon organizers can probably help with the specifics.
