The nextGEM - Hackathon goes into the 2nd Cycle! This time it takes place Tue 28th of June until Sat 2nd of July in Vienna, hosted by Prof. Aiko Voigt from the University of Vienna - the opening and closing sessions will be streamed.

In the spirit of what was written in our proposal, participants will sit together in groups of 5-10 people working on a topic. The topics will be related to the four NextGEMS research themes, as well as to one wind energy challenge problem. It will explore those topics based on the new Cycle 2 simulations run by the IFS and ICON model, identify bugs and improvements, and ultimately prepare for the Cycle 3 runs.
If you havn’t been to a hackathon, have a look at the Cycle 1 hackathon video to get an impression of the atmosphere during the first Hackathon in October.


If you are interested in participating in the Hackathon, please register here.

There will be a limit of 80 people and will give priority to the core NextGEMS scientists and programmers. Nevertheless, hopefully this will leave enough space for friends and advisors of the project. External people will know by mid-April whether there is enough capacity to accommodate for their participation.

Sign up, bring your laptop, and dive in into the world of storms and eddies!
