Faster and safer Labs: Labautomation Hackathon in Konstanz

D-Konstanz | BioLAGO in cooperation with SiLA welcomes you to our hackathon on laboratory automation in Konstanz, that actively addresses the needs of lab users. Increase actively the capabilities of technology and be part of a creative team that contributes to progress for lab automation!

Focus: Mobile Robotics, Smart Data Integration, Documenting, Planning, execution of lab workflows using open standards, Open Source SiLA & AnIML

Join now! „Don´t wait for opportunity. Create it!“

This event includes lab users who express their needs and challenges in the lab, as well as innovative companies who present best practice examples and share their experience. First day of the hackathon on 29 September includes inspiring presentations in the forenoon and in parallel innovative working groups who work on real lab challenges. It is not too late to join these working groups and to be part of the team. On 30 September we continue with the hackathon with working groups and present the results by the end of the event.

Take the chance and join the event in which innovative ideas and approaches to solutions for automation in the laboratory will be developed.

The target audience for the upcoming hackathons are experienced coders as well as lab users who wishes to exchange with top European experts in the field of automation and IT development and also robot vendors.

We cordially invite lab users, universities, interested students, companies, start ups and organisations from life science and clinics as well as programmers to join our event.

It is not too late to join a team that contributes to smarter, safer and faster labs.

Come together – Learn, network and be part of a progressive innovative group!

We are looking forward to hearing presentations of innovative Keynote Speakers such as:

  • Volkmar Czerwinski (Head of QC) and Philipp Seitz (Process Manager) - Vetter Pharma Fertigung GmbH & Co. KG
    "Pharmaceutical QC digitization and automation within Vetter; Planning, execution and documenting lab workflows as a specific challenge."
  • Ádám Wolf (PhD Student) - Takeda
    "Pick & place labware transportation with benchtop and mobile robots - Learn more about lab robot use cases and how to address them."
