SPECs announced at SciPy 2021

Built on Python
Python is a powerful, general-purpose programming language. The scientific Python ecosystem provides the tools that make Python the premier language for scientific computing.

Open source
Distributed under unrestrictive open source licenses, projects are developed and maintained publicly and accessible to all.

Projects are developed by open communities composed primarily of the users of the software.

Extensive and high quality
The scientific Python ecosystem comprises performant, well-tested libraries providing tools for computing across all scientific domains.

Broadly applicable
The ecosystem is widely used in scientific research and teaching.

Coordinated, readable, reproducible
Projects in the ecosystem are completely interoperable, providing the basis for readable, reproducible scientific computation.
