and area.


The hackathon will run fully online, and mostly asynchronously, between
September 27 and October 10, 2021. A detailed schedule of the event can be
found on the hackathon website

following options:

Hack ideas

For those who would like to join the hackathon but have not yet identified
what to work on, we recommend you to keep an eye on the list of hack ideas
that are being put forward. If anything catches your attention you can get
in touch with the proponent, start discussing it further and eventually
form a team. All collected ideas will be pitched by their proponent(s) on
the first day of the hackathon.

Best wishes,
Matteo Romanello and Pietro Liuzzo
