Hello
all,

The
2018 Python in Astronomy conference will be held on 30th Apr - 4th May 2018 at the Center for Computational Astrophysics at the Flatiron Institute in New York, New York. For more information see
http://openastronomy.org/pyastro/2018/ http://openastronomy.org/pyastro/2018/.

Python
in Astronomy 2018 aims to bring a wide variety of people who currently use, develop or teach people about Python packages in the context of all forms of Astronomy. The conference will include presentations, tutorials, unconference sessions, and sprints. As
well as building the community around astronomical uses of Python, the conference aims to improve collaboration and interoperability between Python packages and share knowledge on Python packages and techniques. It will also provide training and educational
materials for users and developers of Python packages.

Participant
selection will be made with the goal of enhancing the Python in Astronomy community and we particularly encourage requests to attend from junior astronomers and people who are new to contributing to open source software. Effort will also be made to select
participants who have a demonstrated potential to contribute meaningfully to the Python in Astronomy infrastructure via providing educational materials, documentation, and/or coding. This conference is intended to be neither an introduction to Python bootcamp
nor only for expert-level Python developers.

you are interested in attending and/or have any questions about the conference, please use this form:
