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!
