FAQ

At Hannover Messe 2018 (HM18), Siemens is hosting an international developers challenge, in which you and your team can work on real customers’ tasks ("Initiators’ Cases“). The best solutions will be presented in a live pitch at HM18.

The MindSphere Open Space Challenge is open for all data-science-enthusiasts and developers of age, predominantly addressing students, start-ups, teams and partner companies with a strong interest and (ideally) experience in the development of applications in industry verticals.

Please apply exclusively online via https://mindsphere-openspace.io. If you are applying as a team, each team member must submit an individual registration and agree with Terms & Conditions.  After the registration you will be given access to the initiators’ cases. It is up to you which and how many cases you choose to work on. If you decide to discontinue your participation, please send a cancellation notification to contact@mindsphere-openspace.io.
No access to the MindSphere platform is granted in the framework of this challenge; it is not necessary to fulfil the conceptual tasks. Please find more information and inspiration about MindSphere at:

We look forward to anything: from a creative idea, an innovative concept, up to an initial prototype. We certainly don’t expect a market-ready app.

It is up to you to decide how far you will push the development of your thoughts and ingenuity. It’s the idea that will get us hooked. Plus: The more details you deliver in the first step, the clearer you make your vision.

Grab the chance to take part in our open in-depth Q&A telephone sessions, and we will answer all questions about the use cases.

The submitted content ("Entries”) and technical data formats do not underlie any restrictions. We appreciate everything, from a concept approach to a prototype to a complete programming. If you are invited to participate in the finale, please prepare an approx. 10-15-minute presentation to be held in front of the jury and the live audience. 
A jury will assess all entries, from which the best four applications per category (max.12) will be chosen for HM18. The application criteria include the following specifications: 

  • Adequate understanding of the task
  • Creativity of the idea
  • Feasibility of the idea
  • Presentation formats
  • Personal presentation 

More on entries, jury and criteria under „Terms & Conditions” 

The latest application deadline is 16 April 2018, 20.00 pm CET.

We have established a forum at the MindSphere Developer Community for exchange and the option to submit questions to the administrator.

Four pre-selected candidates / teams will present their solutions during the pitch at the Siemens booth at HM18. The winners are selected through a vote by the experts jury, by online users in the live-stream and the trade fair audience.

Finalists get the chance to present their solution to a top-level experts’ jury represented by Siemens MindSphere experts and executive-level challenge initiators. In addition, all finalists will be present at HM18 for one day to benefit from prime networking options with the industry audience. Please go to "Terms & Conditions” and "Ready für Resolutions” on this website to get more information on further benefits for finalists and winners. No legal right to benefits and prizes shall be constituted from participating in this challenge.

To apply at https://mindsphere-openspace.io is free of charge. We will not reimburse any costs for equipment, technology and other resources to work on and submit the documents. Finalists onsite will receive a € 500,- (per team) expense allotment. In general it is possible to plan your travel as a one-day trip to Hanover, especially, when you travel within Germany. Please make your own travel and accommodation arrangements if needed. Please note: due to the trade fair, hotel rooms are rare and expensive. Provisions during the event day will be provided at the Siemens HM18 booth. The organizers will contact all finalists prior to the pitch to make final arrangements.
