A team leader is responsible for proposing a project for the event and having a clear vision for developing a solution. To accomplish their goal the team leader is responsible for leading their team of 5-6 individuals at the event - this means clearly defining and delegating tasks, incorporating team members’ ideas to accomplish the goal at stake, and ensuring success of the team. Great team leaders will understand the science involved in their project and, if a software prototype is involved, will also be able to manage its development. Not all projects have to be software oriented - anything that might benefit from the efforts of a group of talented people collaborating is welcome.
Important things to keep in mind if you are interested:
- The software you utilize, integrate, or produce must be open source or at least open-use and your source should be kept on GitHub.
- A manuscript, white paper, or other publication is encouraged from each team.
- Team leaders are responsible for delegating tasks to their team members and ensuring the proposed project gets completed.
