l  Date : Aug 24th(Mon) 2015 ~ 28th(Fri)

l  Location : HOTEL BÂREVE, Seogwipo, Jeju, Korea http://2015.okbqa.org/organization/venue


l   Purpose

Hackathon is a word combination of Hacking and Marathon, unlike the traditional conference where research papers are presented, developers cooperate and communicate for realistic know-hows for developing computer programs.

This is the natural step to adapt to the need of implementation as much as theory in terms of computer systems in the modern society. Hackathon has become an important event for building a real value to developers all over the world.

The OKBQA Hackathon will deal with Knowledge Base and Question-Answering systems and hope to build a world-wide cooperation between experts.

Especially, we are hoping to provide a special track for bio-medical area for knowledge bases and QA systems for infectious diseases and others.

We hope to introduce new trends and advanced techniques through the first days symposium and real development projects for the next 4 days in working groups.
