Hackathon focusing on the development of innovative technical solutions to deal with earthquakes

12-10-2019

Seismic waves from the earthquake in Albania at 14: 04: 25.2 (UTC) on September 23rd , 2019 first arrived at the school seismograph in Igoumenitsa at 14: 04: 58.4 and after half a minute at the school seismograph in Athens at 14: 05: 36.0
  • Could Igoumenitsa’s school send a warning to the school in Athens before the earthquake arrived?
  • Could the Tirana school be the first to alert the two schools?
Grab the opportunity to attend a unique workshop for students, university students and teachers who love algorithm design and open source development for problem solving.
 
Recent seismic vibrations in the Eastern Mediterranean region – as recorded by the National Observatory Seismograph School Network – SNAC – will be available (in waveforms) to participants through the Hellenic Data Service HELIX  to develop algorithms that look forward to an early warning system for earthquakes.
 
The workshop will include problem presentation, analysis of parameters, presentation of examples and then implementation by designing and application of the participants’ suggestions, who will work in groups.
 
The winning team will receive a new generation school seismograph.
 
The workshop is organized by the Institute of Geodynamics, National Observatory of Athens, the Research Center "Athena", the EELLAK Organization and Ellinogermaniki Agogi in the framework of the SNAC, OPENAIRE and OSOS projects, which are co-funded by the European Union.
