Second Symposium on Advances in Modeling and Analysis Using Python
The Second Symposium on Advances in Modeling and Analysis Using Python, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society, will be held 22–26 January 2012, as part of the 92nd AMS Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The application of object-oriented programming and other advances in computer science to the atmospheric and oceanic sciences has in turn led to advances in modeling and analysis tools and methods. This symposium focuses on applications of the open-source language Python and seeks to disseminate advances using Python in the atmospheric and oceanic sciences, as well as grow the earth sciences Python community. Papers describing Python work in applications, methodologies, and package development in all areas of meteorology, climatology, oceanography, and space sciences are welcome, including (but not limited to): modeling, time series analysis, air quality, satellite data processing, in-situ data analysis, GIS, Python as a software integration platform, visualization, gridding, model intercomparison, and very large (petabyte) dataset manipulation and access.
