This tenth anniversary edition is a hybrid event in many aspects. Already the hackathon is a multi disciplinary encounter, now taking place in both physical and virtual spaces, and to top that the main theme is hybrid futures.
29 – 30 May 2021
Inspired by the challenges we face in the 21st year of the 21st century, the venues where the hacking takes place are scattered in space and time. Part physical, part virtual, the science hackers are flying through various dimensions and realities.
Welcome to the metaverse playlist
The playlist of your experience will start with a maze of stories and views in the new world to discover. Next you are finding fellow travellers you can use to form a team. Soon you will be in a situation where you have to compete with other teams to survive. Finding a wormhole to the island of discovery makes you master the situation: here the invention of your team is taking shape, and morphing into reality. Bending and stretching the model you now have until a tangible prototype is leading to the final stage: showtime! Before a curious audience you present and defend your newborn. Don’t forget the selfie, and enjoy the ride!
Hybrid Future Challenge – what does the future look like, what mind blowing solutions can you think of – give us the best of both worlds…
