SciPy 2015 Talk Ideas

The SciPy 2015 call for proposals is open until April 1. In case anyone wants to give a talk but doesn’t have an idea I came up with a few:

  • introduction to testing with a focus on numerics
  • guide to profiling
  • introduction to packaging and distribution
  • scidb
  • xray
  • bcolz
  • which tool to use for which job (cover core packages)
  • data visualization options
  • write a numpy ufunc in Python, Cython, and C
  • roundup of high-performance options (C, Cython, Numba, Parakeet, etc.)

Thanks to Rob Story for some suggestions. If you’ve got ideas for talks you’d like to see, leave a comment!

(I will be at SciPy 2015, but I’m organizing a Software Carpentry tutorial so I probably won’t be submitting a talk proposal.)

P.S. If you’re a first-time speaker from an underrepresented group thinking about giving a talk at SciPy 2015, I’m offering to help with proposal editing and talk prep.
