Each idea/pitch needs to be presented and registered by the evening of Tuesday 28 March 2017 to be officially part of the CW17 Hackday (HD). When registering your idea/pitch you will be asked about the team leader, details of what you plan and the category of your idea/pitch (e.g. Software and Credit, Data/Code Sharing, Reproducible Research, Bring-Your-Own-Data (BYOD), Collaborative working etc.) Note the ideas need not be about writing software: they could be standards related, paper hackathons or some other research software related activity.
Each idea will have a Team leader; the leader could be the idea owner, the pitch author/leader or someone who has decided to form a team around someone else’s idea/open data.
Each team can have a maximum of six people who are not Institute Staff in it. We recommend a minimum of two people in a team; we have a limit on the number of teams - if there are more than 15, preference will be given to the bigger teams (not who came first). If a team becomes too big we may ask you to become two teams but working on the same pitch/idea.
Once your team is formed towards the latter part of the evening of the 28nd March, we strongly suggest you have a free and frank discussion with your team about the licensing around the code and data…
