EthERNet to host 2-week e-Research Hackfest in February in Addis Ababa




EthERNet will host a 2-week e-Research Hackfest in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to enable attendees acquire the necessary skills needed to support the promotion of open and reproducible scientific research,

The event is supported by the European Commission through EthERNet’s participation in the Ubuntunet Alliance that is partner in the Horizon 2020 Sci-GaIA project.

The main objective of the e-Research Hackfest is to integrate scientific use cases through a pervasive adoption of web technologies and standards and make them available to their end users through Science Gateways (entities connected to distributed computing, data and services of interest to the Community of Practice the end users belong to).

The past Sci-GaIA e-Research Summer Hackfest offers a first insight to the activities during the e-Research Hackfest to be held in Addis Ababa and what could be expected as outcomes from the participation in this venue.

The e-Research Hackfest will take place from February, 13 – 24  2017 at the premises of Ethiopian Education & Research Network (EthERNet) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Interested parties are encouraged to present use cases for adoption and integration into science gateways by applying for the event. The e-Research Hackfest will be conducted in English and the closing date for applications is January 16, 2017.  Successful applicants will be notified by January 24, 2017.

Participation in the e-Research Hackfest is by invitation, on the basis of proposed use cases. Those keen to attend the e-Research Hackfest in Addis Ababa need to submit their applications.
