Yes. Here are the credentials:
If your university uses EduRoam you can use that as well.
Don't worry! At the end of our opening we will have a "match making" where you can find each other based on the idea you want to work on. We will explain it in detail on Saturday.
Or you can use the #matchmaking channel in our Slack channel already to pitch your idea and find team mates :)
Teams should have a size of not more than 3-4. You can have teams with up to 5 people but if you win we can only provide 4 items.
If you want to join the competition and win prizes you have to submit your project on our Devpost page until Sunday 11:17 am:

Keep in mind that we may have to adjust some of the times.
Think ahead 10-30 years – by then, the gadgets you are wearing now and their long line of successors will have amassed unbelievable amounts of data that need to be made assessable for an end user.
This leads to the problem of how to visualize the data for an end user and to the problem of how to store tons of data from different devices efficiently.
To solve the challenge, you should either come up with a visualization that allows users to get the whole picture but also seamlessly deep dive into specific periods. Alternatively, you should conceive a storage mechanism that reduces the overall data footprint, but still allows to investigate interesting events and time periods from a couple of years back.
Why is Germany still looking for its paper-based vaccination card in 2017? Your challenge is to come up with a simple, unobtrusive solution that shows how to collect and incorporate vaccination data and use its value throughout one’s life.
With connected health devices, continuously streaming data, context is crucial to understand deviations from normal values. Think about how a connected home device, such as Alexa, can be used to proactively collect this information from the user and combine it with the gathered sensor data. Your challenge is to find a way of capturing the information, keep in mind that it’s meant to be used for prolonged periods of time, so try to avoid the annoying “Clippy Effect” but also the feeling of being watched by “Big Brother”.

How can we improve the way children‘s growth is measured over time? Which solutions provide accurate measurements, documentation of the growth process and storage/sharing of information? How can these solutions motivate the parents to measure their children over a long period of time?
How can we build awareness of the benefits of vaccines? What are digital solutions that remind people to schedule vaccines and support their documentation?
How can we provide digital tools to assist caregivers (parents, partners, family members) during the treatment of the patient? Which solutions will help caregivers to support each other and share their experiences?
You are a patient at a local hospital where you received treatment for a broken ankle. The treatment goes well and you are released from the hospital soon after. The clerk reminds you that you have a right to receive all the documents created during your stay: some x-ray images, a medication plan and a comprehensive health record. The clerk offers to print the documents and burn the images to a CD, which sends you on a mental journey to a time where a computer was something that only people in lab coats used and if you had wanted to use your telephone on the road, you would have needed a pretty long wire. You start to wonder what a modern method for transmitting this sort of data would look like, something that would make it easy for patients while at the same time considering their privacy and need for data security. Your challenge is to design and implement a prototype that solves the outlined issue of transferring the data from the scattered doctors' offices, hospitals or other health providers into a centralised platform.
You may assume that there exists a cloud-based infrastructure – the Gesundheitscloud – capable of handling the data once transmitted as well as a set of mobile apps to be able to display the data back to the user. This system exposes a standard REST-based API, which your solution can connect to in order to exchange data.
A further set of apps exists in the ecosystem of the Gesundheitscloud that can be installed individually on the users' devices and connect to that same API in order to allow the user access to their app data as well.
Keep in mind however that there are various pitfalls such as privacy regulations by the state or technological stagnation in the hospitals. To address these, make sure your solution is safe to use and secures the data sufficiently and that it makes it easy for the healthcare providers to use it ideally without having to revamp entire systems.
Many doctors' practices do not connect their internal IT-Systems to the internet due to fears of malware and data theft. They rather rely on older, better understood methods for storing and transmitting data like printing a document and sending it via fax. Build a solution that fits within this space in order to reduce the efforts for rolling it out to the offices. Your solution could for example accept documents via fax and upload them into the user's account.
The best approach for ensuring data safety is making sure the data is unreadable to anyone without authorisation. Your solution could encrypt documents before uploading them in such a way that guarantees they are only readable by the user themselves.
Beyond these indications we are interested in any other approach or idea you might come up with that responds to the described scenario and problem.
