Come join IEEE and TechXplore for NewHacks, targeted specifically at those who are new to hacking

Do you love coding? Have you always wanted to attend a hackathon, but felt like you had no chance against those with years of hacking experience? If so, then NewHacks is for you! Come join IEEE and TechXplore at this exciting hackathon, targeted specifically at those who are new to hacking.

View full rules


Teams should be made up exclusively of students (or recent graduates within one year of having graduated) who are not organizers, volunteers, judges, sponsors, or in any other privileged position at the event.


All work on a project should be done at the hackathon. We will verify it by your git repository.

The following ideas pertain to the requirements from the teams

  1. Teams can use an idea (but can not use materials-code from previous hackathons) they had before the event. Teams can work on an idea that they have worked on before (as long as they do not re-use code).
  2. Teams can use libraries, frameworks, or open-source code in their projects. Working on a project before the event and open-sourcing it for the sole purpose of using the code during the event is against the spirit of the rules and is not allowed.
