SciPy India is the annual gathering of Pythonistas providing opportunities to spread the use of the Python programming language in the Scientific Computing community in India.
It provides a unique opportunity to discuss about the latest trends on Scientific Computing in the industry. You can present your ideas, research work done in this area during the conference. One of the goals of the conference is to combine education, engineering, and science with computing through the medium of Python.
Professor, School of Public Policy,
University of California, Riverside
He is the founding director of the Center for Geospatial Sciences at the University of California, Riverside. His research interests are in geographic information science, spatial inequality dynamics, regional science, spatial econometrics, and spatial data science. This research significantly benefits from, and contributes to, open source software and the practice of open science.
Scientist, IUAC, New Delhi, India
Dr. Ajith Kumar works mainly in the area of development of instrumentation for particle accelerators and associated experiments, including radio-frequency accelerating structures, control and data acquisition systems, digital and radio frequency electronics modules. He initiated the Phoenix / expEYES project. ExpEYES is currently the cheapest educational system to teach science.
Principal Data Scientist, Gramener
Pratap Vardhan is a full-stack data science engineer and a principal data scientist at Gramener. Pratap spends most of his time with data, code & stories, building interfaces, and helping people tell stories using technology and data.
We invite you to submit proposals for talks or workshops to be presented at SciPy 2020. The time duration for talks is 15 or 30 minutes and for workshops is 2 to 3 hours. There will be two parallel tracks for the workshops this year. One track is meant for beginners and the other is for advanced users.
We appreciate your participation in SciPy 2020. We want you to have an enjoyable and enriching experience in the conference. For this all the attendees are required to conform to the following Code of Conduct. Organisers will ensure that it is enforced throughout the event.
SciPy India is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, physical appearance, disability, race, religion or employment.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
