The ACDH (Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities) is organizing a second virtual CLARIN-DARIAH Hackathon in February-March 2020. In the course of this Hackathon, participants will be offered an Open Dataset to work on (text data and corresponding metadata). They will be given a specific programming task to solve using this dataset. Submitted results must be Open Source and thus contribute to the Digital Humanities code landscape.
The dataset and task will be published on 28 February 2020. Participants will have one month (until 31 March) to develop innovative and creative solutions. An international panel of judges will examine the submissions and choose the winners. The three best submissions will be awarded cash prizes and will be invited to present their projects at the DHA 2020 conference (23-25 September, Vienna); travel expenses of up to 500 € per team will be covered.
Registration for participants is open until 21 February; individuals as well as teams of up to three members can participate.
