The Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), the Faculty of Computer Science of Barcelona (FIB), and the Hackers@UPC organize Bitsxlamarató, a three-day hackathon to collaborate with the Marató of TV3, which this year is dedicated to COVID-19.

After a first edition dedicated to minority diseases, the organizers of the BitsxlaMarató want to bring together the efforts of teachers, research staff and any professional from the fields of health and technology (but also from other areas), who will work online as a team, during 3 days, to seek and develop solutions to face all the challenges posed by COVID-19.

The hackathon will take place on December 18-20 virtually and will include training talks. Participants who request it, will be able to use the MareNostrum supercomputer, both the general-purpose cluster and the MNCTE POWER9 cluster, ideal for tasks related to Artificial Intelligence.
