EuroSciPy 2010 is over

2010/07/13 by Admin Istrator

EuroSciPy 2010 was a fun conference to organize and we think we can call over 150 participants a success.

Thank you to every delegate and speaker that joined us to face the heat.

Thank you to Ecole Normale Supérieure for hosting us.

Read about the reports and send us yours if you want it added to the list.

EuroSciPy 2011 will be in Paris again. We hope to see you there!

EuroSciPy 2010 schedule is out !

2010/06/06 by Admin Istrator

Dear EuroSciPy (future) delegates,

The review has been a long process, but we now have an official schedule for the conference.

We received 46 talk proposals and chose to select 30. Rejecting a third of the talks was not easy, for the quality of the submissions has been improving over the years.

As conference chairs, we like talks that go right to the point, so each selected talk will have a 15 minutes time slot. Only 6 talks will be given twice that time with a 30 minutes slot. The talks we had to reject are interesting too, and we invite them to the lightning talk session where every participant will get a 5 minutes slot.

These time slots include questions, so speakers please rehearse your talks and make sure you get your main message through during your short time on stage, then discuss the details during the breaks. We will also have a place dedicated to open collaboration and last-minute sprinting.

We hope you will enjoy this conference. Please tell everyone about it and register before we reach the numerus closus or june 30th (we have 100 people registered already and will not be able to accommodate more than 200).

See you there!

The call for papers, talks and tutorials for EuroSciPy 2010 is now closed.

Over 40 proposals where received. The conference chairs assigned two reviewers per proposal. If you submitted an abstract, you should get news from your reviewers really soon now.

We expect the reviewers to be able to reach consensus on the final program within a week. Read this blog to get updates and register for the conference if you have not done so yet.

EuroSciPy website bug-fixes on May 21st

2010/05/21 by Admin Istrator

Dear EuroSciPy web surfers,

Please keep the comments about the website flowing in. We will improve it thanks to your feedback.

Some bugs were fixed today with the deployment of euroscipy 0.6.1 and shoppingcart 0.2.1.

We will now continue to work on the review process.

EuroSciPy website upgrade

2010/05/19 by Admin Istrator

Dear EuroSciPy enthusiasts,

The EuroSciPy website was upgraded tonight to take into account the comments made by the user over the past week. We hope this new version will be easier to use, especially when it comes to create an account, submit an abstract and register for the conference.

Those interested in the details or willing to help can take a look at the project tracker.

We will now be working on the on-line payment system and try to make sure that the review process goes smoothly.

Conference registration is now open

2010/05/13 by Admin Istrator

Dear scientific pythonistas,

We eventually set up the registration system for the conference. Just click on the "Conference registration is open!" box in the left column to let us know you will join us in July.

The payment system is not working yet, which means you will not be required to pay before another week or too.

Thanks to our sponsors, the conference and tutorial fees were limited to 50 € for the 2 days each time. That is a total of 100 € for the 4 days and the 4 lunches. Keep your money for your stay in Paris :)

Please register quickly, as the number of people we can host is limited.
