Things are moving quickly in preparation for SciPy 2010: Last week we announced the
General Conference schedule (http://conference.scipy.org/scipy2010/schedule.html),
Tuesday we announced our student sponsorship recipients (http://conference.scipy.org/scipy2010/student.html)
and now we're ready to tell you give you a look at the talks we have lined up for our
Bioinformatics and Parallel Processing /Cloud Computing tracks.
===Parallel Processing & Cloud Computing track===
We really appreciate Brian and Ken's work organizing the papers for this
specialized track. And of course, thanks to everyone who submitted a paper.
There has been a great deal of interest in this set of talks — and word on
the street is that Brian may even have a HPC tutorial up his sleeve...
* StarCluster - NumPy/SciPy Computing in the Cloud-
* pomsets: workflow management for your cloud-
Michael J Pan
* Getting Down with Big Data
Jared Flatow, Anita Lillie, Ville Tuulos
* StarFlow: A Cloud-Enables Python Workflow Engine for Scientific Analysis Pipelines
Elaine Angelino, Dan Yamins, Margo Seltzer
* A Programmatic Interface for Particle Plasma Simulation in Python, and Early Backend Results with PyCUDA
* Parallel Computing with IPython: an Application to Air Pollution Modeling
B.E. Granger, J.G. Hemann
* Astronomy App in the Cloud using Google Geo APIs and Python App Engine
Once again, we are indebted to Glen Otero, from Dell, for putting together the Bioinformatics track.
He received some fantastic papers and we're really looking forward to these presentations:
* Protein Folding with Python on Supercomputers
Jan H. Meinke
* Can Python Save Next-Generation Sequencing?
* The Use of Galaxy for the Research and the Teaching of Genomics
Roy Weckiewicz, Jim Hu, and Rodolfo Aramayo
===Early registration ends next Monday===
That's right: Only a few days left before rates increase! Think of all the
BBQ and breakfast tacos you can buy with that $50-$100 you'll save by
registering early. If that doesn't convince you, consider:
-Cheap flights to Austin-
Buy your tickets now for some very nice prices: $275 from Chicago, $330 from
San Francisco, $380 from New York City, $810 from London...(prices from
-Convenient & affordable hotel-
We got an fantastic deal for on-site accommodations at the AT&T
Conference Center. Pay only $89/night for single occupancy or $105/night for
double occupancy. It will be great to have everyone staying in the same
spot. Once you register, you'll get a code to book your hotel reservation.
The discounted rate will be applied automatically.
No car necessary to get to the conference... and see Austin!
An airport bus (http://capmetro.org/riding/current_schedules/maps/rt100_sb.pdf)
runs straight to and from the AT&T center, so you won't
have to rent a car at all. Plus, the UT campus area is in walking distance
to a number of great restaurants and activities. For any longer trips
you'd like to make Austin has a great public bus system.
Not to mention all of the mind-blowing things you'll learn and outstanding
people you'll meet and catch up with. So what are you waiting for?
