SciPy 2020

Enthought, as Institutional Sponsor, announced the SciPy 2020 Conference will be held July 6-12, 2020 in Austin, Texas. At this 19th annual instalment of the conference, scientists, engineers, data scientists and researchers will participate in tutorials, talks and developer sprints designed to foster the continued rapid growth of the scientific Python ecosystem. This year’s 900 expected attendees represent academia, government, national research laboratories, and industries such as aerospace, biotechnology, finance, oil and gas and more. The SciPy community is incredibly energized, friendly and passionate about their work, making this conference particularly welcoming and informative.

“Since 2002, the SciPy Conference has been a highly anticipated annual event for the scientific and analytic computing community,” said Dr. Eric Jones, CEO at Enthought and SciPy Conference co-founder. “Python is now the most widely used open source programming language for science, engineering and analytics with widespread adoption in research and industry. The powerful tools and libraries the SciPy community has developed are used by millions, creating entirely new areas of discovery and innovation.”

Special topical themes for this year’s conference are “Machine Learning” and “High Performance Python.” The conference will also have a SciPy Tools Plenary Session with updates from important packages and libraries as well as introductions to new tools. The conference will be hosting its first maintainers track to promote discussion and sharing among maintainers and core developers. This year’s keynote speakers include:

  • Anne Carpenter, senior director of the Imaging Platform at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard University
  • Andrew Chael,  NASA Hubble Fellowship Program (NHFP) Einstein Fellow at the Princeton University Center for Theoretical Science. A member of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) collaboration.
  • Stephen Schlamminger, Supervisory Physicist at NIST 

In addition to the special conference themes, there will also be over 100 talk and poster paper speakers/presenters covering 4 mini-symposia tracks: 

  1. Astronomy and Astrophysics
  2. Biology and Bioinformatics
  3. Materials Science
  4. Earth, Ocean, Geo and Atmospheric Science.
