Registration and a full run-down of the Challenge so far is at the link below, so please take a read through it:
While there are a few stages to this, the Open Data Challenge just requires an idea to get started - no need for a full design or a prototype. So if you would like to have a go, Farset Labs will be providing an opportunity to field questions about Open Data and the Challenge; to give some assistance with preparing an entry; and allow everyone to share their research on the Open Data that is out there today.
Even if you don't have an Open Data idea before you arrive, you should have the germ of one by the time you leave :D
