ABOUT ICESat-2 Hackweek

The ICESat-2 Hackweek is a 5-day collaborative learning experience designed to coalesce people and resources around exploring, creating, and promoting effective computation and analysis workflows for the large and complex data returned by the ATLAS sensor on board NASA's ICESat-2 satellite. We will bring together data managers, maintainers, and users to teach each other about open science practices and software during tutorials and contribute to centrally accessible, shareable tools during project work. Our vision includes creating an inclusive, open space that fosters networking, innovation, and sharing ideas.

Information for Applicants

ICESat-2 Hackweek 2022 will take place in March 2022 (hybrid or in-person). Applications have not yet opened, but should be anticipated in November 2021. During the hackweek, we will explore ICESat-2 data and collaborative software infrastructure through tutorials and hands-on “hacking" projects. To best benefit from the program, participants are expected to have some experience with git/GitHub and Python/scientific programming or be prepared to participate in optional workshops in advance of the event to cultivate the technical skills to enhance participation during the event.
