Sensors are becoming ubiquitous, measuring every aspect of today’s life while generating enormous amounts of data. Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 are just two of the buzz phrases used to describe the next revolution of our data driven society and our digitized industry.

Join us from 20st – 22nd July 2018 and be part of of a vibrant Hackathon! We are looking forward to turn data into knowledge, buzz into reality, technological advances into economic and social wealth.

The Sensors & {data} | Hackathon 2018 will bring together coders, makers, scientists, designers and business people to explore latest developments in sensor systems, networks, big data, machine learning and smart contracts. More than sixty participants will work on ten real-world challenges to improve our everyday life.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

(We are constantly adding to this section.)

Will I be able to sleet at the venue/work all night?

Due to security and insurance reasons, we will have to close the venue for a couple of hours every night. Please make sure that you have a place to rest for a couple of hours and take a shower. We will put recommendations of accommodation online soon.

How do you handle intellectual property (IP) generated during the event?

Short answer: We don’t.

Intellectual property (e.g. inventions, code, …) belongs to those who have created it, in accordance with German law. We will not ask you to sign a waiver or any other document regarding intellectual property.
