SciPy Proceedings

Paper Format

Papers are formatted using reStructuredText and the compiled version should be no longer than 7 pages, including figures. Here are the steps to produce a paper:

  • Fork the scipy_proceedings <>__ repository on GitHub.

  • Check out the 2013 branch (git checkout 2013).

  • An example paper is provided in papers/00_vanderwalt. Create a new directory papers/firstname_surname, copy the example paper into it, and modify to your liking.

  • Run ./ papers/firstname_surname to compile your paper to PDF (requires LaTeX, docutils, Python--see below). The output appears in output/firstname_surname/paper.pdf.

  • Once you are ready to submit your paper, file a pull request on GitHub. Please ensure that you file against the correct branch--your branch should be named 2013, and the pull-request should be against our 2013 branch.

  • Please do not modify any files outside of your paper directory.

Pull requests are to be submitted by May 19th, but modifications are allowed during the review period until June 14th.

General Guidelines

  • All figures and tables should have captions.
  • License conditions on images and figures must be respected (Creative Commons, etc.).
  • Code snippets should be formatted to fit inside a single column without overflow.
  • Avoid custom LaTeX markup where possible.

Other markup

Please refer to the example paper in papers/00_vanderwalt for examples of how to:

  • Label figures, equations and tables
  • Use math markup
  • Include code snippets


  • IEEETran and AMSmath LaTeX classes
  • docutils 0.8 or later
  • pygments for code highlighting
