The LAKathon 2021 is organised as an online multi-day event.
To overcome the time zone differences, the event will run asynchronously through the collaborative platform on the LAKathon website (www.lakathon.org).
Each proposed theme has a thematic group and a forum thread. The organisers will encourage subscribing to the platform and engaging in preliminary conversations before the event.
In addition, through a Call for Proposals, we encourage the LA community to propose additional themes with short submissions (2 pages) detailing research questions, associated datasets, linked to the LAKathon themes.
During the two days prior to LAK, there will be 3 synchronous online meetings (check-ins) at 3 different times to suit participants from around the globe.
The link-sharing and content management will be done via the platform and Git Repository. The progress and outcomes will be disseminated via the website blog and the Twitter hashtag: #LAKathon.
