Fall 2014 CIC Categories
GT’s Information Technology Group (ITG), a sponsor of this Fall’s CIC, provides a wide portfolio of services to the GT community including – Buzzcard, Parking & Transportation, Dining Services & Health Services. Entries in this category will work with the data made available by ITG’s services to build new and innovative solutions.
Classroom & Academics
Over 20,000 students attend class every day at Georgia Tech. In doing so, they utilize tools such as T-Square, Clicker and platforms such as Blackboard. In addition, they utilize GT services like Registrar, Scheduling etc. This category aims to produce innovative solutions to challenges faced by GT students, faculty and staff building towards better communication and collaboration in the classroom.
GT Community & beyond
Georgia Tech’s community is more than just the people in it. Our location in midtown Atlanta brings about myriad interactions with our city and our partners. This has led to many avenues for innovation – from transportation to security to retail to visitation. Entries in this categories will create solutions to enhance our interactions within our extended community.
The Convergence Innovation Competition (CIC) is a unique competition open to all Georgia Tech students and is run in both the Fall and Spring semesters. Each year the categories in the CIC are defined by our Industry partners who provide mentorship, judging, and category specific resources which are often available exclusively to CIC competitors. While the competition is not tied to any specific course, competitors are often able to take advantage of class partnerships where lecture and lab content, guest lectures, and projects are aligned with competition categories. CIC Competitors are supported by GT-RNOC research assistants who provide technical support and shepherd teams through the competition process. The overarching goal of the CIC is to create innovative and viable products and experiences including a strong user experience and a business case. Winning entries will include a working end-to-end prototype which operates on converged services, media, networks, services, and platforms. CIC winners go on to commercialization, other competitions, as well as internship and job opportunities strengthened by their competition experience. CIC is an annual event produced by GT-RNOC and the Institute for People and Technology (IPaT).
