Reminder: SciPy abstracts due this Friday!

Hi everyone,

This is a quick reminder that the submission deadline for the SciPy
2016 conference is coming up quickly, on this Friday March 25. SciPy
2016 will be the 15th annual Scientific Computing with Python
conference. It takes place over a full week in Austin Texas, and
includes two days of tutorials, three days of talks, and two days of
on-site developer sprints.

This year there will be a new mini-symposium on Special Purpose
Databases, which includes technologies like NoSQL but also
array-oriented platforms like HDF5 and NetCDF. I strongly encourage
anyone using these technologies to consider submitting a talk or
poster proposal for SciPy. Interest in this area has only grown over
the past several years, and people working with new tools or sharing
real-world applications in science or engineering are likely to get a
very good reception.

John Readey and I are serving as co-chairs for the Special Purpose
Databases mini-symposium and would be happy to answer any questions,
either on the lists or offline.
