# Python and Sage at SIAM‘08¶

At the 2008 SIAM meeting in San Diego, Randy LeVeque from U. Washington and
I co-organized 3-part minisymposium entitled *Python and Sage: Open Source
Scientific Computing*. At my blog you can find more details, this page only
contains links to all the presentations I was able to get from the speakers.

The talks I have so far are (listed in the order they were presented):

- Fernando Perez - Python: A Scalable Tool for Scientific and Mathematical Computing.
- Travis Oliphant - NumPy and SciPy: Open Source Tools for Numerical Computing in Python.
- Robert Bradshaw - Sage: A Unified Environment for Mathematical Computation (this is a static PDF, the original Sage files can be found here).
- Randy LeVeque - Teaching Numerical and Symbolic Computation using Open Source Software.
- William Hart - Coopr: a python repository for optimization.
- Robert Bradshaw - Cython: A Python to C Compiler (this is a static PDF, the original Sage files can be found here).
- Kyle Mandli - EagleClaw: Easy Access Graphical Laboratory for Exploring Conservation Laws. His talk was about a new version of the clawpack package.
- Bill Spotz - PyTrilinos: A Python Interface to Parallel, Object-Oriented Solver Packages for Scientific Computing.
