Hope it's appropriate that I'm posting this to the Front Range Pythoneers group. We are trying to build up the Python community in the climate sciences.

Second Symposium on Advances in Modeling and Analysis Using Python, 22–26 January 2012, New Orleans, Louisiana
     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. Preliminary programs, registration, hotel, and general information will be posted on the AMS Web site (http://www.ametsoc.org/meet/annual/) in late-September 2011. 
      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.
      The $95 abstract fee includes the submission of your abstract, the posting of your extended abstract, and the uploading and recording of your presentation which will be archived on the AMS Web site.
Please submit your abstract electronically via the Web by 1 August 2011 (refer to the AMS Web page athttp://www.ametsoc.org/meet/online_submit.html.) An abstract fee of $95 (payable by credit card or purchase order) is charged at the time of submission (refundable only if abstract is not accepted).
      Authors of accepted presentations will be notified via e-mail by late-September 2011. All extended abstracts are to be submitted electronically and will be available on-line via the Web, Instructions for formatting extended abstracts will be posted on the AMS Web site. Manuscripts (up to 3MB) must be submitted electronically by 22 February 2012. All abstracts, extended abstracts and presentations will be available on the AMS Web site at no cost.
      For additional information, please contact the program chairperson, Johnny Lin, Physics Department, North Park University (jlin at northpark.edu). (5/11)
