CUNY Women in STEM

CUNY Women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is a transdisciplinary group open to the CUNY community. We aim to link-up STEM oriented campus-based groups and create a virtual hub that encourages both across campus interactions, and new connections to outside entities interested in the advancement of women in STEM.


SciPy 2018 CFP

  • SciPy is one of the best conferences to learn about what\’s going on in the Python programming space, which in turn can help you with all sorts of projects. They also offer all sorts of financial aid (, regardless of whether you\’re presenting or volunteering.

    SciPy holds mini-symposiums to discuss scientific computing applied to a specific scientific domain/industry during a half afternoon after the general conference. Their goal is to promote industry specific libraries and tools, and gather people with similar interests for discussions. Mini-symposia on the following topics will take place this year:

    • Astronomy
    • Biology and Bioinformatics
    • Data Science
    • Earth, Ocean and Geo Science
    • Image Processing
    • Language Interoperability
    • Library Science and Digital Humanities
    • Machine Learning
    • Materials Science
    • Political and Social Sciences

    There also two specialized tracks that run in parallel to the general conference track:

    Reproducibility and Software SustainabilityWe are interested in hearing about 1) software and tools that enable or improve reproducibility or sustainability, 2) case studies of reproducibility or software sustainability that can be generalized, or 3) community or education efforts that have improved reproducibility or software sustainability. What does your software or approach bring that can help others in these important areas?

    Data VisualizationData Visualization is a key tool for discovering and communicating insights with others at many levels. Python has a spectrum of data visualization solutions that complement its extensive analytical offerings. This special track is to discuss advances in data visualization and highlight innovations that have enhanced the data-sharing experience within and across disciplines and with the general public.

    SciPy 2018, the sixteenth annual Scientific Computing with Python conference, will be held this July 9th-15th in Austin, Texas. SciPy is a community dedicated to the advancement of scientific computing through open source Python software for mathematics, science, and engineering. The annual SciPy 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.
