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.

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