CENTURI Hackathon

CENTURI Hackathon

For quantitative biology

June 24 - 26, 2022 -  CIRM, at the Luminy campus (Marseille, France)

What is the CENTURI Hackhaton?

The CENTURI Hackathon is a fast-paced weekend of coding, engineering and idea-sharing to drive innovations at the interface of Computer Science and  Life Sciences. The event is aimed at curious and creative minds interested in improving their coding skills through collaborative projects. The event is open to students, postdocs, developers and researchers.

Experts in biological and biomedical topics as well as mathematicians and non-scientific developers are encouraged to apply and lend their perspective to the project teams.

The goal of our Hackathon is to computationally unlock technological bottlenecks arising from the study of Living Systems. Our event is aimed at everyone with experience in coding and with a keen interest in problem solving in big data, computer vision or modeling. Experts in connex fields such as biology, mathematics and non-scientific developers are encouraged to apply!





What types of projects will participants be working on ?

Projects will strive to solve key technological bottlenecks in a variety of topics, such as Data visualization and interactions, Computer vision, Data mining, Robotics & Computer assisted microscopy, Modeling, etc.


Participants will work on big data projects for living systems, with projects from academic labs in CENTURI and elsewhere.

CENTURI Hackathon will welcome a maximum of 80 participants. Applicants should have some experience with coding.

Participants will work in groups of 6-8 people on various projects  in a variety of topics:

  • Data visualization and interactions
  • Computer vision
  • Data mining
  • Robotics & Computer assisted microscopy
  • Modelling
