  Registration for EuroScipy
  <http://www.euroscipy.org//conference/euroscipy2010> is finally open

To register, go to the website 
<http://www.euroscipy.org//conference/euroscipy2010>, create an account, 
and you will see a /‘register to the conference’/ button on the left. 
Follow it to a page which presents a /’shoping cart’/. Simply submitting 
this information registers you to the conference, and on the left of the 
website, the button will now display /‘You are registered for the 

The registration fee is 50 euros for the conference, and 50 euros for 
the tutorial. Right now there is no payment system: you will be 
contacted later (in a week) with instructions for paying.

We apologize for such a late set up. We do realize this has come as an 
inconvenience to people.

*Do not wait to register: the number of people we can host is limited.*

  An exciting program

    Tutorials: from beginners to experts

We have two tutorial tracks:

    * *Introductory tutorial* <http://www.euroscipy.org/track/871>: to
      get you to speed on scientific programming with Python.
    * *Advanced tutorial* <http://www.euroscipy.org/track/872>: experts
      sharing their knowledge on specific techniques and libraries.

      We are very fortunate to have a top notch set of presenters.

    Scientific track: doing new science in Python

Although the abstract submission is not yet over, We can say that we are 
going to have a rich set of talks, looking at the current submissions. 
In addition to the contributed talks, we have:

    * *Keynote speakers*
      <http://www.euroscipy.org/conference/euroscipy2010>: Hans Petter
      Langtangen and Konrard Hinsen, two major player of scientific
      computing in Python.
    * *Lightning talks* <http://www.euroscipy.org/talk/937>: one hour
      will be open for people to come up and present in a flash an
      interesting project.

    Publishing papers

We are talking with the editors of a major scientific computing journal, 
and the odds are quite high that we will be able to publish a special 
issue on scientific computing in Python based on the proceedings of the 
conference. The papers will undergo peer-review independently from the 
conference, to ensure high quality of the final publication.

  Call for papers

Abstract submission is still open, though not for long. We are 
soliciting contributions on scientific libraries and tools developed 
with Python and on scientific or engineering achievements using Python. 
These include applications, teaching, future development directions, and 
current research. See the call for papers 

*We are very much looking forward to passionate discussions about Python 
in science in Paris*

*Nicolas Chauvat and Gaël Varoquaux*
