This year Bio-IT World (23-25 May 2017, Boston) will host its first hackathon. The hackathon will focus on FAIR Data, data that are Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable.
One of the organizers, Belgian company Ontoforce, has reached out to the FAIR Data team to deliver the content for the three-day hands-on session. Erik Schultes (CSO FAIR Data) will lead the hackathon and present an overview of the FAIR data approach & the GO FAIR initiative, whereas Nuno Nunes and Shamanou van Leeuwen (FAIR Data engineers) will offer several tutorials and demo’s.
A five judge jury will score the results of the hackathon, and select the top three FAIRification projects based on their criteria.
NB: A GO FAIR metrics group is collaborating with a broad set of stakeholders to define metrics enabling both qualitative and quantitative assessment of the degree to which online resources comply with the 15 Principles of FAIR Data as they were originally stated in the “The FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship“.
