14:38:19@SolarDrew:matrix.orgSolarDrew Afternoon all. If anyone is interested in being on the SOC for Python in Astronomy next year, please fill in this form and we'll get back to you in a few weeks 🙂

08:39:15@dstansby:matrix.orgdstansby SolarDrew: is there an indication/decision on which continent it's on next year?
08:39:43@cadair:cadair.comCadairThis one I believe
08:40:17* @cadair:cadair.comCadair needs to get on with that
09:40:28@SolarDrew:matrix.orgSolarDrewNo final decision, but yes most likely Europe
18:01:57@namurphy:matrix.orgNick MurphyWe're just starting the PyHC community meeting now. Here's the zoom link: https://slack-redir.net/link?url=https%3A%2F%2Fcuboulder.zoom.us%2Fj%2F900372182
18:05:03@namurphy:matrix.orgNick MurphyHere's the link to the draft agenda that Alex just shared on Zoom: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1C3xSfbOwKbAq-PSkGwfaMojC9hKclpfHNX9R1d4qf1o/edit?usp=sharing
20:02:06@juliebarnum:matrix.orgjuliebarnumHere's the link to the Tutorial, Hackathon, and Unconference topics that've been brainstormed so far: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1qNpz1lhExrflt6z4KTAd6SassS8uWH7uTXghZpH5xyc/edit#gid=0 Could use a couple more volunteers to give a tutorial on one of those topics, or one of your choosing. :) The tutorials at the Fall meeting will given Wednesday morning.

19:16:58@namurphy:matrix.orgNick Murphy I just had a conversation with Gene Avrett about preserving the Pandora software package and documentation on Zenodo, which is important since Pandora has been used to calculate several of the most widely used (VAL) model atmospheres of the solar chromosphere using non-LTE radiative transfer. One of the tricky aspects is that Pandora has been developed over several decades and is difficult for newcomers to modify, but it's important that it be openly archived given how influential the model atmospheres have been. This got me to thinking that 1D non-LTE radiative transfer of stellar atmospheres would be an important capability within the PyHC ecosystem, and I'm not aware of any other openly available programs that have this functionality.
20:39:05@wtbarnes:matrix.orgwtbarnes Nick Murphy: 👍️
20:39:29@wtbarnes:matrix.orgwtbarnesThat'd be a really nice capability
20:49:43@namurphy:matrix.orgNick MurphyIt really would! That would probably be reasonable for a HDEE proposal the next time around, though my guess is that it would take at least six months of effort so it'd need to be larger than what the limit was this last time around.
20:51:14@namurphy:matrix.orgNick MurphyI'm going to be talking with the librarian here at the CfA soon to figure out a way to preserve the 25 notebooks of handwritten notes and printouts that contain the equivalents of the software requirements specification, use cases, technical notes, and git log.

18:16:38@juliebarnum:matrix.orgjuliebarnumGot an email yesterday from Ben Brown, who is a tenure-track faculty member at LASP, about presenting at our meeting what he and his fellow coworkers here at LASP have been working on (I'll put his description below - seems pretty interesting w.r.t. what we do here in PyHC). I went ahead and gave him the Monday, Nov 4, 11:30 - 12:30 slot to do so. Do we know yet about anyone from specutils or AIDA coming and presenting? We do still have the Tuesday, Nov 5 11:30 - 12:30 slot open, and could find another time to open up if both groups end up having someone available.
18:16:51@juliebarnum:matrix.orgjuliebarnumBen's research synopsis: 'We do an interesting form of python-enabled heliophysics research. We do high performance computing, using the open source Dedalus framework, on problems related to the interior of the Sun. This is numerical simulation, rather than data analysis, running on NASA's Pleiades super computer. Dedalus itself is written entirely in python as are many of it's dependencies. I'm part of the development team, and if it was interesting to the PyHC community, I'd be happy to talk about the huge gains we've seen in scientific productivity from using python at scale throughout our simulation and analysis tool chain, rather than following a more traditional computing tool and workflow (e.g., Fortran for compute, IDL or python for analysis).'

18:23:24@cadair:cadair.comCadairI know that nobody from specutils can attend but they might be able to present remotely (although I would guess unlikely)
18:31:27@namurphy:matrix.orgNick Murphy Having Ben Brown present on Dedalus sounds great to me!
18:31:51@namurphy:matrix.orgNick MurphyI emailed Giovanni Lapenta again yesterday, but haven't heard back yet.
18:33:08@namurphy:matrix.orgNick Murphy (Giovanni would be presenting on the AIDA project.)
11 Oct 2019
15:18:00@namurphy:matrix.orgNick MurphyI just heard back from Giovanni Lapenta about a presentation on AIDA at the Nov meeting. Giovanni will not be able to come due to a prior commitment, but he asked Romain Dupuis to give the presentation.
15:19:14@juliebarnum:matrix.orgjuliebarnumAlrighty, can Romain do Tuesday at 1140 am mt?
15:19:28@juliebarnum:matrix.orgjuliebarnum1130 sorry
15:20:46@namurphy:matrix.orgNick MurphyGiovanni was still waiting to get confirmation from Romain (who happens to be in Japan awaiting a typhoon), but I'll pass along the time. Giovanni also said that he is encouraging the whole AIDA consortium to come. Are we still planning on an hour? (if I remember the agenda correctly)
15:21:28@namurphy:matrix.orgNick Murphy(I'm looking forward to our meeting! They're among the most fun meetings that I go to.)
15:22:25@juliebarnum:matrix.orgjuliebarnumYes, it will be an hour from 1130 to 1230. :)
15:22:56@juliebarnum:matrix.orgjuliebarnumAlso, yay on more atendees!!!
15:23:19@juliebarnum:matrix.orgjuliebarnumAlso also, I have similar sentiments about our meeting. :)
14 Oct 2019
18:43:18@juliebarnum:matrix.orgjuliebarnumHello all - I'll send an email reminder later in the week, but we do have a telecon coming up next Monday morning. So far the only thing on the agenda is finalizing the Fall meeting agenda... anyone have anything else they'd like to bring up and discuss during the telecon? :)
