SciPy 2018 dates and call for abstracts

I'm helping with next year's SciPy conference, so here are the details:

July 9-15, 2018 | Austin, Texas

Tutorials: July 9-10, 2018
Conference (Talks and Posters): July 11-13, 2018
Sprints: July 14-15, 2018

SciPy 2018, the 17th annual Scientific Computing with Python conference, will be held July 9-15, 2018 in Austin, Texas. The annual SciPy Conference 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 deadline for submissions is February 9, 2018.

Talks and Posters (July 11-13, 2018)

In addition to the general track, this year will have specialized tracks focused on:

  • Data Visualization
  • Reproducibilty and Software Sustainability

Mini Symposia

  • Astronomy
  • Biology and Bioinformatics
  • Data Science
  • Earth, Ocean and Geo Science
  • Image Processing
  • Language Interoperability
  • Library Science and Digital Humanities
  • Machine Learning
  • Materials Science
  • Political and Social Sciences

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.
