When location matters in the every day life of the Danube region countries
Join the second Danube Open (Geo) Data, Citizens Science & INSPIRE Hackathon
in Bratislava, Slovakia
Date of the event: 12th - 13th of December 2016
Venue: ImpacHub Bratislava
REGISTRATION IS OPEN by 07th of December 2016!
After the initial experience from DanubeHack 2015, we believe it still make sense to create the space, where where people can present what can be done with the open (where relevant geo) data resources, technologies and share ideas, experience and knowledge. With that in mind, DanubeHack 2.0 aims to:
To proof that there is potential, present what’s behind you and your mates! Identify the possibilities, pitch ideas, promote your data, re-use available open data & software technologies to create new data, software, apps, or visualisations! And last but not least meet new people and spent two days in Bratislava close to the Danube river.
Initial list of application domains:

He has extensive software development experience as a developer, architect, project manager and has been involved with the development and implementation of numerous IT infrastructures using a variety of technologies on multiple platforms. Dirk is is a member of the advisory board of the Industrial Industry Fund (university of Ghent) and part of the "geospatial datainfrastructure" (GDI) advisory board of Flanders. Dirk is an OSGeo member since 2007, became a charter member in 2013 and is since January 2016 vice president of OSGeo.
Tomáš is a researcher who has been working in several European, regional and local projects focusing on geospatial resources discovery, management and sharing with main focus on data and metadata workflows automation. He recently finished the postdoctoral position funded by the NEWFELPRO program implementing Bolegweb project.
Codrina is a technical geographer, an open source GIS user, with research interests in data interoperability in hydrogeology, an active advocate and supporter for the open data initiative. Looking into data policies, as well.
Olav Peeters develops and maintains the spatial data infrastructure of the Belgian Interregional Environment Agency (IRCEL-CELINE) including public (real-time) data endpoints, clients for analysing and visualising the data and e-reporting of air quality data. He is also involved in the development of hi-resolution air quality models (RIO-IFDM) and implementing (new) air quality measuring techniques (low cost sensors, woodburn, quality assessment/control).
Kathi is a specialist for the provision of observational and measurement data within INSPIRE. She coordinated the guidelines for the provision of O&M data in INSPIRE, and developed the European Air Quality reporting data models. She has now founded a startup datacove.eu.
Brooke is a remote sensing scientist turned entrepreneur and drone pilot. She specialises is remotely sensed & GIS data for policy surrport and community development. She currently provides support to various European Commission projects.
It’s not about winning - it’s about learning and making contacts, friends and networks (so everyone’s a winner!).
A panel of skilled judges will select the best outcomes.
INSPIRE Award: Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 10 LTE 32GB Ebony + cover with keyboard

This single sessions hackathon event will be combined with the set of Lightning talks addressing various topics. DanubeHack 2.0 will provide the space as for developing new apps, services and data as well as session offering knowledge sharing via workshops, including the provision of space for discussions on relevant topics.
Warm up, by presenting the aim of the event, input data and technology as well as participants. Pitching the ideas into the projects and setting up the project teams, side activities, midhack.
Day 1 follow up, presentation of the projects outcomes, evaluation and awarding of the best ones and the outlook for the future possible activities.

DanubeHack 2.0 is the second edition of the Hackathon organised in Bratislava (Slovakia) as follow up of the DanubeHack taking place in 2015. Main aim of the DanubeHack 2.0 is to create the space, where those with the interest in potential of Open (Geo) Data can meet, present their ideas, knowledge a discuss the possible ways of further cooperation or project ideas.
Danube hack will last 2 days, starting on the Monday morning (12th of December 2016) and will last till Tuesday evening (13th of December 2016). For more detailed roadmap and updates in agenda, check regularly this website.
Any enthusiasts willing to show, what can be done with available data and technologies as well as anybody with the interest in improvement or sharing the knowledge with related topics are more than welcome. The same applies for those willing to present available Open Data. Anyway, because of capacity limitations, organisers will evaluate the registration proposals in order to cover thematic and geographical scope of the event.
Main motivation to consider your participation should be the willingness to explore or demonstrate the potential of the Open (Geo) Data added value as well as share and collect related information, knowledge and experience. Data produces can also advertise their Open Data and get direct feedback from their users. Geo data by its nature provides spatial delineation for any phenomena we are facing these days. Therefore, despite the primary geodata focus any non - spatial data which can have direct on indirect linkage to location and space will be in scope, independently of their origin. The same will be applied for technology part of the event, where any perspective software platforms, solutions as well as approaches and methodologies will be more than welcome. Initial List of resources (covering identified data, catalogues and related tools) has been made available and will be updated by the organizers, supporters including input received from you. Registration is possible via registration form.
Hackathon will be primarily focused on implementation of the ideas presented and supported by the teams created from the participants at the beginning. Lightning talks will provide the small enrichment of the event with the short inspirative contributions for the relevant topics.
The success and quality of the event is closely linked with the received support and sponsoring. Event can provide unique opportunity to trigger promising ideas, gain new knowledge or uncover smart experts. Therefore, various modules of event supporters/sponsors have been identified:
Participation is free of charge, based on the registration. Because of the capacity limitations, organisers will evaluate the registration proposals in order to cover thematic and geographical scope of the event. Selected participants will be contacted with further details.
Watch this space regularly, or follow the latest updates via Facebook .
To provide the support for the hackathon participants, group of mentors with expertise from wide set of domains will be on place to provide the guidance, where needed. Evaluation of the outcomes from the projects established during the hackathon will be undertaken by the panel of skilled judges.
There will be prepared essential set of foods and drinks for the whole event, including connection to the electric and internet networks. Hackathon participants shall bring their tools and enthusiasm.
No. When the Hackathon kicks off, you’ll have the chance to pitch your idea to all participants, or to join a team you find interesting. Teams may combine or split up according to their interests and goals.
Hackathon will take place in ImpactHub located in the Bratislava centre. Transport options:
