I have recently been asked to help out with the Geospatial Data in Science track for SciPy 2014 in Austin, Texas this coming July. The conference is being held at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center at the University of Texas campus in Austin, Texas from July 6th to 12th 2014. It promises to be an awesome gathering of scientific Python users, developers, and organizations. You can checkout the conference announcement on the SciPy 2014 website, where you can register to submit a proposal and/or abstract, and generally find out all about the SciPy community and conference.
