The annual SciPy Conference allows participants from academic, commercial, and governmental organizations to showcase their latest Scientific Python projects, learn from skilled users and developers, and collaborate on code development.
The conference consists of two days of tutorials followed by two days of presentations, and concludes with two days of developer sprints on projects of interest to the attendees.
We look forward to a very exciting conference and hope to see you all at the conference.
We are excited to feature these keynote presentations.
This year we are expanding the tutorial session to include three parallel tracks:

The conference is an opportunity for developers that are usually physically separated to come together and engage in highly productive sessions.
Lightning Talks - Two 45min sessions of short presentations submitted the same day.
Sprint - a hackathon environment is setup for attendees to work on the core SciPy packages or their own personal projects.
There are many opportunities to gather and discuss topics outside the scheduled conference.
Birds-of-a-Feather, or BoFs, - self-organized interactive discussions around a topic or package.
Breakout Rooms - available to continue discussions, hold meetings, etc.
Introduced in 2012, mini-symposia are held to discuss scientific computing applied to a specific scientific domain/ industry during a half afternoon after the general conference. Their goal is to promote industry specific libraries and tools, and gather people with similar interests for discussions.
Mini-symposia on the following topics will take place this year:
In memory of John Hunter, we are pleased to announce the first
This open competition aims to highlight the importance of quality plotting to scientific progress and showcase the capabilities of the current generation of plotting software.
Winners will be announced during the conference days.
This year we have two specialized tracks that run in parallel in the general conference:
