DescriptionPython is an established, high-level programming language with a large community in academia and industry. Scientists, engineers, and educators use Python for data science, high-performance computing, and distributed computing. Since Python is extremely easy to learn with a very clean syntax, it’s well-suited for education in scientific computing. Programmers are much more productive by using Python.
The workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners using Python in all aspects of data science and high performance computing. The goal is to present Python applications, to discuss general topics regarding the use of Python, and to share experiences using Python in scientific computing. While Python is extremely strong in supporting human productivity, it still lacks in computational performance compared to ‘traditional’ HPC languages such as Fortran or C. We especially encourage authors to submit novel research in improving performance of Python applications as well as research on productivity of development with Python.
