Focus Period Lund 2022

Cancer immunotherapy hackathon

April 20 – May 3, 2022

With Sonja Aits and Laurent-Philippe Albou

This hackathon is arranged as a part of the ELLIIT focus period in Data-driven modelling and learning for cancer immunotherapy.


About the hackathon

The hackathon will be a chance for workshop participants and guest researchers to work together on real cancer immunology datasets and analysis challenges over several days. Participants will work in interdisciplinary teams, from their homes or on-site in Lund, and we will have tight interactions between the teams to exchange ideas and give feedback. This hands-on activity should generate new analysis approaches and cancer immunology insights and build bridges between the cancer immunology and technical communities. Thus, it will also be an excellent way to get inspiration for new projects and form new collaborations that will continue beyond this focus period. And of course it will be fun!

For questions, please contact Sonja Aits.


The hackathon takes part in the first half of the ELLIIT focus period from April 20 to May 3 and is open to all researchers. Participants will work in interdisciplinary groups. Attendance is flexible, meaning that participants do not attend all hackathon days but can instead work when it suits them within this period. There is no collision between the hackathon events and the visiting scholar seminars and activities. We encourage you to attend both.
