70th Anniversary Student Challenge
Deadline to enter is 1 April 2016
Want some extra recognition for your school? Department? Program? Do you have students who would excel at this challenge?
If so, please pass this along and invite them to participate in the 70th Anniversary Student Challenge. The challenge invites all IEEE Computer Society student members across the globe to create a solution, based on the IEEE Computer Society 2022 Report, that will solve a real-world issue in a smart, fresh way.
Propose a solution to a real world-problem and exhibit your ingenuity! The winning submission may receive up to $1,500 and travel expenses to attend and be recognized publicly during the IEEE Computer Society Annual Awards Banquet in Atlanta, GA, USA on 8 June 2016.
To enter submit a PowerPoint presentation, a video or an Illustrated storyboard along with a supporting essay (maximum 1,000 words) on what technologies in the 2022 report are being utilized and why you think your solution will work. In the essay through a link please include a working prototype, demo, or code.
Time is running out! Deadline to enter is next week - Friday, 1 April!
