SciPy is a community dedicated to the advancement of scientific computing through open source Python software for mathematics, science, and engineering. The annual SciPy Conference allows participants from both academic and commercial organizations to showcase their latest projects, learn from skilled users and developers, and collaborate on code development. Your sponsorship of the conference provides vital financial support to the community.
Sponsorship provides the necessary resources to fund:
Student ScholarshipsLast year we were able to pay the travel, registration, and lodging costs for thirteen students to attend the SciPy Conference. Students are selected for their significant contributions to open source scientific Python projects, and, in 2010, came from France, Colombia, South Africa, Canada, and across the U.S.
SprintsEach year, two days of sprints following the SciPy Conference provide an intensive atmosphere for collaborative contributions to SciPy development projects.
TutorialsTwo days of tutorials held prior to the SciPy conference provide expert-led classes for users at introductory and advanced levels.
Keynotes AddressesProminent members of the scientific computing communities present their research and share their expertise in software development.
AffordabilitySponsorships enable the registration fee to remain extremely affordable compared to many other meetings.
In SciPy 2010, these aspects of the conference were made possible through the generous support of sponsors including Dell, Microsoft, DE Shaw, AQR Capital Management, and the Python Software Foundation.
