Renowned scientists, engineers and researchers from around the world to gather July 10-16, 2017 in Austin, TX to share and collaborate to advance scientific computing tool
AUSTIN, TX – June 6, 2017 – Enthought, as Institutional Sponsor, today announced the SciPy 2017 Conference will be held July 10-16, 2017 in Austin, Texas. At this 16th annual installment of the conference, scientists, engineers, data scientists and researchers will participate in tutorials, talks and developer sprints designed to foster the continued rapid growth of the scientific Python ecosystem. This year’s attendees hail from over 25 countries and represent academia, government, national research laboratories, and industries such as aerospace, biotechnology, finance, oil and gas and more.
“Since 2001, the SciPy Conference has been a highly anticipated annual event for the scientific and analytic computing community,” states Dr. Eric Jones, CEO at Enthought and SciPy Conference co-founder. “Over the last 16 years we’ve witnessed Python emerge as the de facto open source programming language for science, engineering and analytics with widespread adoption in research and industry. The powerful tools and libraries the SciPy community has developed are used by millions of people to advance scientific inquest and innovation every day.”
Special topical themes for this year’s conference are “Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Applications” and the “Scientific Python (SciPy) Tool Stack.” Keynote speakers include:
- Kathryn Huff, Assistant Professor in the Department of Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
- Sean Gulick, Research Professor at the Institute for Geophysics at the University of Texas at Austin
- Gaël Varoquaux, faculty researcher in the Neurospin brain research institute at INRIA (French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation)
In addition to the special conference themes, there will also be over 100 talk and poster paper speakers/presenters covering eight mini-symposia tracks including: Astronomy; Biology, Biophysics, and Biostatistics; Computational Science and Numerical Techniques; Data Science; Earth, Ocean, and Geo Sciences; Materials Science and Engineering; Neuroscience; and Open Data and Reproducibility.
New for 2017 is a sold-out “Teen Track,” a two-day curriculum designed to inspire the scientists of tomorrow. From July 10-11, high school students will learn more about the Python language and how developers solve real world scientific problems using Python and its scientific libraries.
