12-16 December 2022

BACKGROUND
In regards to the success of the BioHackathon Europe organized by ELIXIR Europe, ELIXIR Germany and de.NBI are planning to run a BioHackathon Germany 2022 in Lutherstadt Wittenberg at Leucorea (12-16.12.2022). We hope to encourage de.NBI / ELIXIR Germany and non-de.NBI / ELIXIR Germany participants to take part, as well as attracting industry engagement.
We are planning to hold the BioHackathon Germany with remote access - available for those that cannot attend the meeting in person. We believe this hybrid format will allow everyone to participate in the BioHackathon Germany and deliver optimized outcomes from the selected projects.
Seats are limited for face-to-face participation. The registration is based on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration will be opened after the project selection.

SCOPE
BioHackathon Germany activities are driven by dynamic sessions where life scientists gather, discuss, and implement ideas and projects during intensive and productive coding sessions. The selected topics will be aligned to challenges proposed by de.NBI / ELIXIR Germany and their service centers and units.

GOALS
- Engage technical people in the bioinformatics community inside and outside de.NBI / ELIXIR Germany to work together on topics of common interest aligned to de.NBI and ELIXIR Germany activities
- Strengthen the interactions with de.NBI / ELIXIR Germany service centers and units to establish and reinforce collaborations through hands-on programming activities.
