Talks Overview

SciPy 2012, the eleventh annual Conference on Scientific Computing with Python, will be held July 16-21, 2012, in Austin, Texas.

The current Talks Schedule (July 18th & 19th) is available. It is in its final stages of confirmation and is subject to change.

Specialized Tracks

Two specialized tracks run in parallel to the main conference:

High Performance Computing with Python

Whether your algorithm is distributed, threaded, memory intensive or latency bound, Python is making headway into the problem. We are looking for performance driven designs and applications in Python. Candidates include the use of Python within a parallel application, new architectures, and ways of making traditional applications execute more efficiently.


They say a picture is worth a thousand words--we’re interested in both! Python provides numerous visualization tools that allow scientists to show off their work, and we want to know about any new tools and techniques out there. Come show off your latest graphics, whether it’s an old library with a slick new feature, a new library out to challenge the status quo, or simply a beautiful result.

Domain-specific Mini-symposia

Mini-symposia on the following topics are also being organized:
