"Jailbreaking the PDF" Hackathon

From Alexander Garcia and Alex Garcia-Castro

Montpellier, France  The upcoming "Jailbreaking the PDF" hackathon ( will be held Monday, May 27 in Montpellier, France at the Agence Bibliographique de l'enseignement Superieur (ABES):

Currently, the bulk of peer-reviewed scientific knowledge is locked up in PDF documents, which are difficult to get information.

We want to change that.

If you’re interested in hacking on PDFs and exploring ways to access scholarly data in modern ways, this hackathon is for you. There is no registration fee–the event is free.  Bring yourself your favorite laptop, and we'll supply the food, drinks wifi,

repository, and everything else necessary to hack away.

Future announcements will be posted at
