PyCon AU 2016: Science and Data mini-conference returns

PyCon AU 2016 is excited to announce the third of our special events, the Python Science and Data mini-conference.


The Science and Data mini-conference is a one-day forum for people using Python to tackle commercial and research problems in science, engineering and data science.Python is a very popular choice for a wide range of scientific disciplines and has a strong set of libraries, frameworks and tools for scientific computing, including the Jupyter notebook, SciPy, pandas and Scikit (to name just a few).


The Science and Data mini-conference is a chance to showcase the use of new and innovative uses for Python in disciplines such as genomics, computer vision, mathematics, high performance numerical computing, fintech, machine learning and data analysis. The mini-conference is also a great opportunity to network with other scientific Python developers and to track some of the emerging trends in the scientific Python ecosystem.


We look forward to seeing you at the third PyCon AU Science and Data mini-conference on August 12, 2016.


– Graeme Cross and Clare Sloggett, Science and Data mini-conference organisers
