The Stimulating Peripheral Activities to Relieve Conditions (SPARC) Data and Resource Center, with funding from the National Institutes of Health, is hosting an in-the-cloud codeathon from July 12-26, 2021. Submissions for project proposals are due May 10, 2021.
Eligibility: Competitors from the United States and abroad are eligible.
Prizes Available: Several prizes of up to US$10,000 each will be awarded.
In this codeathon, we are looking for exciting projects which use SPARC data and/or SPARC tools and resources in novel ways, particularly in enhancing, demonstrating, or measuring the findability, accessibility, interoperability, or reusability (FAIR) of the data.
Projects must 1) demonstrate the value of SPARC’s public data and/or 2) directly integrate into or with any of the following SPARC tools and resources to improve their existing capabilities via the various APIs and services available. Here are examples of codeathon projects that may be of interest to potential applicants.
Access to training and computational resources in the cloud will be available to turn your idea into a working prototype. Various SPARC experts will be available to help with technical advice as needed.
