REGISTRATION CLOSED! – Cycle 3 Hackathon

14. February 2023

Hackathons are communal exploration, analysis and development activities – all various forms of ‘hacking’. They prioritize working together over lecturing one another. At NextGEMS meetings, our fingers will do the talking.”

Our nextGEMS Hackathon goes into the 3rd Cycle! This time it takes place in Madrid, from Mon, 29 May to Fri, 2 June 2023, and it is hosted by Prof. Elsa Mohino from Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

In the spirit of what was written in our proposal, participants will sit together in small groups working on a topic. The topics will be related to the four nextGEMS research themes, as well as to marine ecosystem and fisheries Challenge Problem. We will all explore those topics based on the new Cycle 3 simulations run by the IFS and ICON models, identify bugs and improvements, and ultimately prepare for the nextGEMS production runs. If you haven’t been to a hackathon, have a look at our Cycle 1 and Cycle 2 hackathons to get an impression of the atmosphere and collaboration.

Continuing the tradition of the previous hackathons, we are also opening a call for stipend applications to support the participation to the nextGEMS third hackathon. Go here for more details.

As a new feature compared to the first two hackathons and a pledge for wider community collaboration, this time we will welcome guests from partnering projects: WarmWorld, EERIE and Destination Earth.

If you are interested in participating in the Hackathon, please register here until the 3rd of April, 2023.

The event will charge a EUR 150 participation fee. Once your participation is confirms, you will also receive the instructions for the payment. We have a limit of 110 people and will give priority to the core nextGEMS scientists and programmers. Nevertheless, we hope that this will leave enough space for friends and advisors of the project and we explicitly invite everyone related to nextGEMS to register. We will let external people know by mid-April whether we have enough capacity to accommodate for their participation.
