SciPyLA 2016, the fourth annual Scientific Computing with Python in Latin America conference, will be held this May 16th-20th in Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil. SciPy is a community dedicated to the advancement of scientific computing through open source Python software for mathematics, science, and engineering. The annual SciPyLA Conference allows participants from academic, commercial, and governmental organizations to showcase their latest projects, learn from skilled users and developers, and collaborate on code development.

We invite proposals for 20 minutes talks and poster presentations.
