Pangeo @ SciPy2022

After years of mostly remote interactions, we are excited for the Pangeo Community to convene at SciPy2022 in Austin, TX.

At the same time, recent political events have dimmed our community’s enthusiasm for traveling to Texas, a state where a woman’s right to choose has now been eliminated. We are encouraged by the recent statement from the conference organizers that alternate locations will be considered for the future.

Here is a run-down of some Pangeo-related events happening at SciPy2022.
