Scientific Python Working Group Charter

Purpose & Common Goals

This working group shall draw on the expertise of the broader scientific Python community, to select the best use of its budgeted funds to advance the scope, breadth, and utility of Python for scientific work.  In essence, the purpose of the group is to grant funds allocated to it by the PSF towards conferences, user groups, educational, and development efforts.

Active Time

This working group shall stay in existence indefinitely.

Core Values & Internal Governance

This working group shall issue public statements at the time that any grants are made by it. These statements shall explain the perceived value and significance of the project(s) to which grants have been given.  In the case of conferences or other public events, we may give grants in the form of sponsorships that will increase publicity and public recognition of the PSF (e.g. via have booths, banners, or pamphlets for these groups available at those events as a benefit of sponsorship).
