ObsPy & Python @ AGU Fall Meeting 2013

Dear all,

If you plan on going to AGU Fall Meeting 2013, please consider submitting an abstract to the IN-034 session (see below).

Remember that AGU abstracts are referenced (Eos Transactions, ..., Fall Meet. Suppl., Abstract XXXXX-XXXX), which makes your codes/programs/presentations sort-of referenced !

We are looking forward to see many many abstracts submissions !!

Best regards,

Thomas & Lion

New high level, open-source languages have spread their reach to the earth-sciences community. This session focuses on the Python language and aims at further promoting its use. While Python is well established for day-to-day operations on local/small datasets, until recently it was still quasi-inexistent when it came to handling large ones. This is changing and more and more advanced Python-based technics and tools are being offered to the community, such as for example UV-CDAT for climate research or OBSPY for seismology.This session calls for papers describing recent advances in the handling, analysis and visualization of ultra-scale and/or distributed datasets using Python as well as demonstrated production quality solutions for Earth Systems.

Dear all,

just a short reminder that the deadline for abstract submission to the AGU Fall Meeting 2013 is approaching fast.

If you will be attending the meeting and are using Python for your research or workflow, please consider submitting an abstract to the IN-034 session until *next week Tuesday, August 6th*.


It aims to promote the use of Python in the earth-science community.

All the best,

Lion and Thomas
