Welcome to Open.Science.Hack, a 24-hour hackathon that is organised with open science as a theme.
A hackathon is an event where programmers meet to programme and to be inspired by each other. Sometimes under free forms, sometimes with specific themes or goals.
On 6-7 April, Open.Science.Hack is arranged at Linnaeus University by the Linnaeus University Centre for Data Intensive Sciences and Applications (DISA) and networks in the region, including Kodkollektivet, Spiik, WiTech and Vxodev. The theme of the hackathon is open science and the idea is that the different teams will address the challenges and data in different areas within DISA.
This hackathon is open to everyone – students, doctoral students, researchers, professionals etc – but the number of seats is limited to 100, so first come, first served. One goal of the hackathon is to encourage diversity, so the ambition is to create teams where at least one student, one professional (or researcher) and one woman are included. In order to facilitate this, a compulsory matchmaking is held on Friday 22 March at 4-6 pm, where the participants are divided into teams.
