The Science & Data miniconference organisers for PyCon AU 2014 are
pleased to announce the call for proposals is now open!

The Science & Data miniconf is a one day conference held on Friday,
August 1, 2014 in Brisbane as part of PyCon Australia:


The miniconf is dedicated to talks related to science and data analysis
and, as a community conference, we are keen to hear from people in the
community who would like to present a paper related to science or data
analysis using Python.

We welcome proposals of all kinds, from all kinds of speakers:
first-time through to experienced speakers. There will be short (20 - 25
minute) talks as well as longer 45 minute talks and 5 minute lightning
talks (which you don't have to register a proposal for).

Presentation subjects may cover applications of science, engineering,
mathematics, finance, and data analysis using Python, including AI and
'big data' topics, either academic or commercial. Formats may be either
tutorials or case studies.

The deadline for proposals is June 20, 2014.

If you have friends or colleagues who have something valuable to
contribute, twist their arms to tell us about it! Please also forward
this Call for Proposals to anyone that you feel may be interested.

To submit your talk proposal, please use the submission form at:


See you in Brisbane in August!
