The annual US Scientific Computing with Python Conference, SciPy, has been held at Caltech since it began in 2001. While we always love an excuse to go to California, it’s also important to make sure that we allow everyone an opportunity to attend the conference. So, as Jarrod announced last fall, we’ll begin rotating the conference location and hold the 2010 conference in Austin, Texas.
As you may know, Enthought is headquartered in Austin. So in addition to our standard SciPy sponsorship, this year we’ll also be undertaking a great deal of the planning and organization.
To begin with, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve secured several corporate sponsorships that will allow us to host the conference at the brand new AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center on campus at the University of Texas. It’s a wonderful facility in Central Austin and provides easy access to an array of great restaurants, parks, and music venues.
We will also be able to provide stipends for our Tutorial presenters for the first time. These community members provide us with an invaluable learning experience every year, and we’re very excited to be able to compensate them for their efforts. And of course, we’ll also continue to offer student sponsorships to support active academic contributors who want to attend the conference.
So mark your calendars, folks! June 28 – July 3. Early registration open now.
