About OceanHackWeek#

OUR MISSION is to meet, collaborate, and learn at the intersection of ocean and data sciences. We create vibrant, diverse, and inclusive communities that push the future of open science.

OHW21 in person and on Zoom

OceanHackWeek (OHW) is a 5-day collaborative learning experience aimed at exploring, creating and promoting effective computation and analysis workflows for large and complex oceanographic data. It includes tutorials, data exploration, software development, collaborative projects and community networking. Its objectives are to:

  • Promote data and software proficiency in ocean scientists: Provide participants with computational and data science skills that can advance oceanography research, which often requires the integration and manipulation of diverse sources of data and models.

  • Facilitate inclusive community building: Connect oceanographers across disciplines and career stages and cultivate an open science and a sharing culture.

Participant Quotes

My experience at the Oceanhackweek 2019 was in a few words a once in a lifetime learning experience. The people involved were amazing, from the organization group to all the participants. The project group I joined was extremely democratic and involved. I learned not only from more advanced researchers but also telling what I knew to my group partners. I definitely recommend this event for everyone that is eager to learn.

It is sometimes hard to predict whether a given conference, training or hack-a-thon might be worth your time. […] The real challenge, of course, is to find a group of like minded people that want to expand their horizons and learn together, and that is just what I found when I attended Ocean Hackweek.
