After our successful hackathon last year (https://www.aerzteblatt.de/archiv/185701/IT-Sicherheit-Wenn-Hacker-helfen), this year we want to spent again a weekend hacking away on a exciting challenge. This time it is going to be about lung infections and what important role computer simulations play in the research.
But we would not be the Health Hackers if we were not doing this in a fun and creative way. So, we decided to gamify the computer simulation model and to start developing a game around this serious topic. This new genre of games is called “serious game” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serious_game) and it was experienced to be both fun and helpful in research e.g. FoldiT https://fold.it/portal/.
