International conference on Python for education and scientific computing
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.
