About this event

A team hackathon attacking the problem of seismic resolution. We challenge you to build a web or mobile app to help understand, estimate, or increase seismic resolution through acquisition, processing, or analysis. If it means seeing or measuring smaller, thinner, subtler things in the subsurface, it's in!

Rules

It's your hackathon. You can work on anything you like, in any way you like. If you don't want to be part of the contest, that's 100% great. Please just come and hang out! Team size....

  1. It's your hackathon. You can work on anything you like, in any way you like. If you don't want to be part of the contest, that's 100% great. Please just come and hang out!
  2. Team size. Teams in the contest should have no more than 4 members.
  3. Fresh code. None of your code should exist before the hackathon, and the code must be developed on site. Teams may plan ahead of time, however.
  4. Frameworks. You can use any language, frameworks, platforms, or libraries you wish. You can build an iOS or Android mobile app or a web app, but not a desktop application.
  5. Publishing code. There will be extra credit for published, open source code — but this is at the team’s discretion. We’d love to see a new software company too!
  6. Schedule. We will start as soon after 9 am on Saturday as we can. We will finish all work at 4 pm sharp on Sunday, and commence with demos.
  7. Prize categories. There will be at least 3 categories, something but not exactly like this: Best overall, Best idea, and Best code. There will be prizes.
  8. Judging criteria. To compete, you must deliver a working app, and a 5 minute demo/presentation. You will be scored on originality, functionality, science, impact, and design.
  9. Small print. By taking part in the event, you agree to allow Agile Geoscience to include mention of your participation in the event, and to appear in photos and video of the event.
  10. Smaller print. Agile Geoscience makes no claim over intellectual property generated during the event. Your work belongs to you and your team.
  11. Smallest print. Agile Geoscience reserves the right to change the rules before the events starts, and to adapt to the situation on the weekend itself, and is the sole arbiter of rule interpretation should disputes arise. Which seems unlikely. Let's face it, none of this is serious in any way.
