But wait! What even is a hackathon?

Alright, fair point. You may not know what a hackathon is. It isn't some super scary thing that only the elite can participate in. Anyone can! You probably have a lot of questions too. Well, don't worry, we've got you covered. Read this little document we've prepared that will answer all your questions. And if you still have questions, email us at acm.svcecse@gmail.com.

Problem Domains

So you're in? What do you need to do? Well that's a secret. :P But these are the domains that you'll work on. We will give you a specific subdomain from these domains. For example, if the domain is Healthcare, your subdomain would be something like Healthcare from Home. If the domain was Energy, it could be Renewable Energy. Don't worry though, it'll be something you can work with for sure. :) Do check out our FAQs though. They should answer most of your questions.

Education

We're looking for innovative ways to make education better.

Governance

Security

They stole my Aadhar joke :(

People are getting hacked everyday. Halp pls.

Format

1. Online Screening Round

There's no special work needed for this round. Just fill in the registration form as usual. For the abstract, tell us about some ideas to make it safer for an individual in today's world. Note that this is not the actual problem domain. We will simply use this to judge your problem solving skills and creativity. Your Github links (Or GitLab, BitBucket or even HackerRank) will sell us on your coding proficiency. If you don't have one of those, link us to something else that you've made. Maybe an app or a website. Registrations close at 10 PM, 10th August 2018. So don't delay too much.

2. The 24-Hour Hackathon

This is the on-site hackathon taking place at Ascendas IT Park from 18th to 19th August 2018. We'll give you all the required information regarding this if you do get selected for the round. But check out our FAQ which should cover most of your questions. And remember, we'll be giving you the subdomains during the event . So don't start working on something right now. :P
