Have a question?

EPICENTER started out as a small lanparty and is today the largest and longest running gaming event in the region – now with its expansion with a hackathon and gamejam, it is set to become the largest technology festival in the country.

You can sign up by choosing the desired ticket (and options, if applies) in our webstore, which guides you through the whole process – entering your data, choosing the payment method and processing the payment through our processor Mollie. The webstore is available at the link below:  http://spid.si/shop

As long as you are a student (be it primary school, high school or university)  and you are interested by hackathons, we will be happy to accept you to the event. We also accept ex students, the only condition is that you finished your programme in the last couple of years.

If you are from Slovenia and studying in Slovenia, just visiting Slovenia, a part of an exchange program, or want to come just to attend our event from abroad – we will be happy to welcome you, if you are an active student at any school or university.

The maximum number of students per team is 4.

Don’t let that stop you. A lot of other students will come on their own as well. After the opening ceremony we will have team formations for everyone who doesn’t have a team.

You should definitely still attend, whether you’ve written tons of code or not a single line. We’re a very welcoming community and we encourage you to give it a try!

Yes. You can also always look at local hostels/hotels in the area to ensure a comfortable sleep. If resting at the venue, do not forget to bring a pillow and/or sleeping bag though.

Yes. There will be a lot of different challenges and thanks to our sponsors the winners or winning teams of each challenge will receive a prize.

No. Due to the GDPR regulation on personal data and privacy, each attendee has to sign up and accept our terms and conditions, privacy policy and other conditions of event attendance himself. This is the reason the webstore does not allow you to add more than one ticket of the same type in your basket. We apologize for the inconvenience.

You can pay for the signup fee with a variety of payment platforms (PayPal, Credit cards, Paysafecard, SEPA bank transfer, etc.) and in a variety of currencies. When completing the order, you will be redirected to our payment processor Mollie where you will be able to complete the purchase.

The signup fee can not be paid at the venue itself. Please see the list of the available payment methods at the question “How can I pay the signup fee?”

We do not return payments, except in the case that the event as a whole is cancelled, or as defined in the general terms and conditions of event attendance, which are agreed by every attendee when signing up.

The visitor entrance fee is 2€ per visitor. That includes unlimited access to the venue during the event. The fee is required because of the large amount of people attending the event and for additional security, for the competitors as well as visitors.

When you arrive at the venue, look for an information desk to go through the check-in process. There we verify that you are signed up and paid the entrance fee – then you take your place at the hackathon and the games begin following a short opening ceremony of the hackathon.

First but not least, a laptop and charger! We cannot provide computers so bring anything you’ll need to code. You can share equipment with a teammate. Here’s some other things you may want to consider: change of clothes, power extensions, any necessary adapters for connecting to HDMI or VGA screens, and plenty of enthusiasm!

The whole organisational team behind EPICENTER and EPICHACK works on the project on a volunteer basis. If you want to help out and in turn receive a memorable, fun and dynamic experience, contact our EPICHACK project lead – Tomaž Leopold ([email protected]).
