Scientific Computing with Python
Austin, Texas • July 10-16, 2017
 

Why Sponsor the SciPy 2017 Conference?

Build awareness, recruit, and make contacts:

Last year, the SciPy Job Fair and sponsor tables were an overwhelming success and we will be bringing them back again. Sponsors who choose to participate will have a chance to meet with attendees and discuss opportunities and potential fit. SciPy brings together some of the best minds in scientific and analytic computing, 25% of them students; you’ll be hard-pressed to find this kind of audience anywhere else.

Unparalleled access to attendees:

Our job fair and sponsorship tables are positioned in the heart of the conference. The tables rim the opening night reception area and remain up in the break area through the three days of the conference.

“The job fair was an excellent addition to the conference-make sure to keep that!...We had a great experience with sponsorship, and have come home to several good applications to our open positions!” -SciPy sponsor

Sprints Financial Aid

If your company benefits from the Python Open Source Libraries, consider giving back by funding the attendance of sprint leaders and core developers at our programming sprints. Sprints gather together core developers and others interested in the specific library or package to push forward new features or improve the existing code base. The financial aid will encourage more sprints at SciPy, yield significant package improvements, and ultimately increase the number of new contributors to core packages in the SciPy community.
