Call for Proposals
SciPy Latin América 2015, the third annual Scientific Computing with Python Conference, will be held this May 20-22 in Posadas, Misiones, Argentina.
SciPy is a community dedicated to the advancement of scientific computing through open source Python software for mathematics, science, and engineering. The annual SciPy Conferences allows participants from academic, commercial, and governmental organizations to showcase their latest projects, learn from skilled users and developers, and collaborate on code development.
Proposals are now being accepted for SciPy Latin América 2015.
Presentation content can be at a novice, intermediate or advanced level. Talks will run 30-40 min and hands-on tutorials will run 100-120 min. We also receive proposal for posters. For more information about the different types of proposal, see below the "Different types of Communication" section.

Different types of Communication
Talks: These are the traditional talk sessions given during the main conference days. They're mostly 30 minutes long with 5 min for questions. If you think you have a topic but aren't sure how to propose it, contact our program committee and we'll work with you. We'd love to help you come up with a great proposal.
Tutorials: We are looking for tutorials that can grow this community at any level. We aim for tutorials that will advance Scientific Python, advance this community, and shape the future. They're are 100-120 minutes long, but if you think you need more than one slot, you can split the content and submit two self-contained proposals.
Posters: The poster session provides a more interactive, attendee-driven presentation than the speaker-driven conference talks. Poster presentations have fostered extensive discussions on the topics, with many that have gone on much longer than the actual "session" called for. The idea is to present your topic on poster board and as attendees mingle through the rows, they find your topic, read through what you've written, then strike up a discussion on it. It's as simple as that. You could be doing Q&A in the first minute of the session with a group of 10 people.
Lightning Talks: Want to give a talk, but do not have enough material for a full talk? These talks are, at max, 5 minute talks done in quick succession in the main hall. No need to fill the whole slot, though!
