Science Hack Day Dublin will be taking place on March 3rd-4th 2012 in “The Hub” DCU. It is an all-day-all-night (36 hour) event that brings scientists, engineers, computer scientists and designers together to find solutions (hacks) to real-life problems and questions during a brief but intense period of collaboration. Starts at 9am Saturday, ends 6pm Sunday, with Hacking/sleeping overnight in the venue (optional).
I (David) am on the organising committee for this and I think it is going to be really great, we opened registeration last week and have a had a really great response.
Science Hack Days have become an international trend successfully bringing science and technology together by providing a platform for different types of creative and inquisitive minds to collaborate in the same physical space on focused tasks.Dublin will be the 6th city in the world to run a Science Hack Day after London, San Francisco, Mexico City. Cincinnati and Cape Town with another 24 planned to run throughout 2012.
Science Hack Day is for anyone with an interest in bringing science and technology together. If you’re a coder, designer, scientist, hacker, statistician or simply an enthusiastic person with good ideas, Science Hack Day is for you.
