ADACS Hackastron is public hackathon taking place from 3rd – 5th November at Curtin University, WA. At this event scientists, coders, technologists and enthusiasts from academia and industry are invited to come together to access Astronomy data and work with challenges Australian Astronomers face.
ADACS invites all Australian Astronomers to submit a challenge for Hackastron 2017 by completing the form by following the link below before the deadline of 18th October 2017. A panel will select the successful challenges which will be advertised on the ADACS website after the 23rd October.
Expected participants will include data scientists and computer programmers from many fields. The event runs over a weekend and participants will tackle real life astronomy challenges in collaboration with Australian Astronomers. Thus your challenge will need to have a demonstrable outcome within 48 hours.
