Enthought proud to announce that the SciPy Conference organization will transition to NumFocus beginning in 2023

Since founding the SciPy Conference in 2001, Enthought has been an institutional sponsor and organizer of the popular annual event. 

To build on the twenty years of success and growth of the conference, Enthought will be transitioning the institutional organization of the SciPy Conference to NumFocus. This change will make the conference formally part of a not-for-profit organization, a more appropriate home for it, and enable the future direction and success of the conference to be even more community-driven.

NumFocus is an organization dedicated to the promotion of open practices in research, data, and scientific computing by serving as a fiscal sponsor for open source projects and organizing community-driven educational programs. In addition to its fiscal support of open source projects, it has been a long-time sponsor of the SciPy Conference. NumFocus has extensive experience in planning and operating educational programs and conferences.

Enthought remains deeply committed to the SciPy community and the SciPy Conference, and will continue to be an institutional sponsor, continuing its long-running financial support and participation. Enthought and NumFocus both view this as a great direction for the conference and how our organizations can best support the SciPy Conference and its long-term success going forward.
