SciPy 2014 Talk and Poster Presentations

Talk Guidelines

Speakers are encouraged to use their own laptops to present, though the session chair may provide a laptop for speakers who do not have one.

Talks in the General, Scientific Computing Education, and Geospatial Data In Science tracks are scheduled for 30 minutes each. Please plan a 20-25 minute talk to allow time for questions and transitions during those 30 minutes.

Talks within the domain-specific mini-symposia may be of different lengths, specific to each mini-symposium. If your talk is part of a mini-symposium and you would like more information, please contact the chair for further details about the format of those symposia.

Poster Guidelines

Poster presenters are asked to set up your posters between 3:00pm and 4:00pm on Monday, July 7th, in the Grand Ballroom. Your poster will remain on display there through the entirety of the conference. Presenters will stand near their posters during the poster session, 2:30pm Wednesday July 9. Please retrieve your poster before the end of the conference.

Please bring a poster of reasonable size. Our poster stands are made up of 2 upright poles, 2 horizontal bars and 2 bases (no wheels.) Posters are commonly 36 or 42 inches tall and can be 72 inches wide. Posters that are taller can hang below the bottom horizontal bar.

We use foam core board on our stands in case someone needs to pin something to the background. We provide large metal clips to fasten posters to the metal bars if needed, but we do not provide thumbtacks or pins to fasten items to the foam core boards.

Have you registered?

All speakers and poster presenters need to register. We are a community conference and can't waive these fees as they are essential to keeping the conference at the high quality it is.

Accepted Presentations

Accepted poster presentations are listed at conference.scipy.org/scipy2014/posters.

Call for Submissions (now closed)

SciPy 2014, the thirteenth annual Scientific Computing with Python conference, will be held this July 6th-12th in Austin, Texas. 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 academic, commercial, and governmental organizations to showcase their latest projects, learn from skilled users and developers, and collaborate on code development.

We invite proposals for 20 minute talk and poster presentation by April 1, 2014

Specialized Tracks

This year we are happy to announce two specialized tracks that run in parallel to the general conference:

Specialized Tracks

This year we are happy to announce two specialized tracks that run in parallel to the general conference:

Scientific Computing in Education

Thanks to efforts such as Software Carpentry, the Hacker Within and grassroots Python Bootcamps, teaching scientific computing as a discipline is becoming more widely accepted and recognized as a crucial task in developing scientific literacy. This special track will focus on efforts to promote and develop scientific computing education, as well as related topics such as reproducibility and best practices for scientific computing.

Geospatial Data in Science

Python has become a core component of organiziing, understanding, and visualizing geospatial data. This track will focus on libraries, tools and techniques for processing Geospatial data of all types and for all purposes -- from low-volume to high-volume, local and global.

Domain-specific Mini-symposia

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:

  • Astronomy and astrophysics
  • Bioinformatics
  • Geophysics
  • Vision, Visualization, and Imaging
  • Computational Social Science and Digital Humanities
  • Engineering

For the submission you will need the following information:

The Brief Description: The brief description you fill out below will appear in the online program.

The Detailed Abstract: Your placement in the program will be based on reviews of your detailed abstract. This should be a 150-300 word detailed outline of your presentation. This detailed abstract should concisely describe software of interest to the SciPy community, tools or techniques for more effective computing, or how scientific Python was applied to solve a research problem. A traditional background/motivation, methods, results, and conclusion structure is encouraged but not required. Links to project websites, source code repositories, figures, full papers, and evidence of public speaking ability are encouraged.

Review and Proceedings

Each abstract will be peer-reviewed by multiple members of the Program Committee Board. Abstracts will be accepted for posters or presentations. Optional papers to be published in the conference proceedings will be requested following abstract submission. This year the proceedings will be made available prior to the conference to help attendees navigate the conference.

Accepted presentations will be announced on May 1st.
