Hacking the Smart City is a hackathon aimed at finding solutions to smart city challenges. Organised by the Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) at UCL and co-sponsored by the UK’s Ordnance Survey, this event is part of the ESRC's Festival of Social Science.

During the hackathon you will have access to CASA technologies and expertise in the areas of visual analytics, data sensing and extraction, crowdsourcing, digital social research and geospatial modelling as well as big data streams from Twitter, transport data from the city of London, weather data, air pollution, survey data from crowdsourcing, and more.

The event is free and we are looking for individuals with a range of different skills who want to experiment with the data, learn more about these innovative technologies and have some fun. We will provide food and drink throughout the event so just come with your laptops and loads of enthusiasm!

There will be an icebreaker social event on 7 Nov from 18.00 to 20.00 where the smart cities challenges will be introduced and teams will form. On 8 Nov (17.00 to 21.00) and 9 Nov (09.00 to 18.00), teams will work together on the challenges and CASA staff will give lightning presentations on different technologies and datasets as needed. Prizes will be awarded for the best ideas.
