bitsxlaMarató: Hackathon for COVID-19

You are here

After last year's experience, we decided to repeat! We want a Hackathon full of solidarity, creativity, technology and health.

Once more the FIB, together with Hackers@UPC (organizers of HackUPC) and Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) sets up the bitsxlaMarató, a hackathon for COVID-19. We expect you form 18th to 20th December.

This year, but, the Hackathon will be held virtually. We are currently working for it to be successful.

To do so, we are counting on you! You can't miss it!

The Hackathon will include formative talks that you can not miss it! And we expect to have interesting guided activities! During the last day of the Hackathon teams will do their presentations, demonstrations and solution proposals obtained from the challenges exposed the first day.

We already have 3 challenges:

  • Searching for similar patients: AI Doctor House conquers hard COVID-19!
  • Cough COVID-19? Help us distinguish your cough
  • Clinical-microbiological caracterization of SARS-CoV-2 infection at pediatric age.

Participate! If you are a FIB student you'll be able to recognize up to 2 ECTS if you participate. Sign up


For sure! We are also looking for a donative! Before, during and after the Hackathon we are also looking to get donatives for "La Marató de TV3", from participants, sponsors and/or all UPC community!

We'll inform on how to participate with a donative later.
