November 19-20, 2016
EPFL, Switzerland

We'll be back next year!
In the meantime, check out the projects, and the photos from Saturday and Sunday.

We present the first edition of LauzHack, a student-run hackathon at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. Come and join over 200 like-minded student-hackers hacking together for 24 hours to make something amazing!

So, what's a hackathon? It's a creativity marathon, where attendees work in teams of up to four and put their ideas together to create something exciting in only 24 hours. It gives teams of hackers a chance to turn their ideas into reality.


This is the planned schedule. We will keep you up to date with any changes during the hackathon!
