The organizers are pleased to announce that JuliaCon 2019 will take place at University of Maryland over July 21-27, with the main conference held between July 23 and 26 (inclusive). July 21 and 22 will be reserved for workshops and the 27th will be a hackathon day.
The venue for the conference is the SMC Campus Center, in downtown Baltimore which is a 15-20 minute cab ride from the Baltimore Washington International Airport. Baltimore is a vibrant city with its Inner Harbor an attraction in itself. The city’s mix of regional culture and ethnic cuisines are spread out among the many neighborhoods in the area. For the avid sports fans, Baltimore is home to the Orioles and Ravens and their stadiums are just minutes walking from the conference event. Baltimore is also a central location to many Federal Research Agencies such as the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), National Institute of Health (NIH), Walter Reed Army Research Institute, National Institute of Technology and Standards (NIST), etc. We expect to attract scientists involved in scientific computing and data science from these agencies and to provide them a first-hand experience with the vibrant Julia Community and language.
The call for proposals will open mid-January and close at the beginning of March. So please line up your ideas and keep your eyes open for the CFP!
Please mark your calendars for this exciting event. Details of the full conference will follow soon.
