SciPyLA 2017 is the fifth annual conference about scientific computing with Python tools. It is scheduled on November 22nd - 25th 2017 in Sancti Spiritus, Cuba. During the four days of the conference there will be approximately 93 activities scheduled including, but not limited to, talks, pitch sessions, social events, hackathons, hack nights, job fair, development sprints, poster sessions, hands-on labs and workshops . The SciPy community is aimed at improving and fostering the adoption of scientific computing powered by open source Python tools optimized to solve problems in the fields of Mathematics, Science, and Engineering.

The workshop is a meeting point to discuss the latest results of Latin American research facilities. Participation of peers from poorer countries will contribute to fight the regional disparities in education and research as well as to reach more than 15,000 physicists.

CFP Description

Latin American workshop on Python and Physics

The workshop is a meeting point to discuss the latest results of Latin American research facilities. Participation of peers from poorer countries will contribute to fight the regional disparities in education and research as well as to reach more than 15,000 physicists.
