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 !!

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.
