The 1st Datathon of the AKPIK (Working Group on Physics, Modern IT and Artificial Intelligence) will take place on Sunday, 19 March 2023, before the Spring Meeting of the Matter and Cosmos Section (SMuK), from 10:00 to 16:00 in the Recknagel building at the TU Dresden (Haeckelstraße 3, 01069 Dresden) in room REC/C213/H (and possibly other rooms).

Within this Datathon, teams of two to five persons will work on solving an interesting and challenging task on a given data set. Although the results will be inspected by jury, the performance of the results is not the only criterion and a special award will be given to the group with the most creative approach.

The AKPIK Dathathon is intended for younger members of the German Physical Society (DPG) and offers an exciting challenge, as well as the possibility for networking in relaxed atmosphere during coffee breaks. A comprehensive knowledge on Data Science is not required for participation. The participation is free of charge.
