This year, DESCON focuses on the impact of technology on the ENVIRONMENT and how we could better make sense of our natural and social environment. We look at how artists and scientists can help us create better narratives using data visualisation.
We invite you to join us in these discussions as we hear from exceptional contributors. You will have the opportunity to participate in a data hackathon, Capture the Flag challenge, and one of our three exciting hands-on workshops on data visualisation narrative, how to train your AI data sets, and how to assemble a Klimerko device.
DESCON is a free event.
In 2022, we’re switching our usual IoT hackathon to a datathon challenge. Participants and teams will work on new creative uses of environmental data sets.
We’ll share data available via the open-source citizen’s network Klimerko, any open portal data sets supplied by the Republic of Serbia, as well as any open data available in the neighbourhood that is scrapeable or free to download and use.
Projects such as Klimerko and the Vazduh Gradjanima initiative demonstrate how open environmental data and collaborative citizen measurement networks can benefit the environment: broad use of such data enables high-quality information in energy and other sectors and can, in some cases, help to spot environmental disasters.
We welcome you to submit your talk or project proposal by Tue, 24th May. If you’re selected, we will inform you within 3 days so that you have time to prepare.
DESCON is a non-profit event run by a small team. If you wish to help out during the weekend, let us know!
