Submission for the Fall 2017 CIC
You can submit your project entry at the Project Submission Page which is currently live.
The deadline for the Fall 2017 CIC submission is on November 12th (11:59PM Eastern Standard Time).
#1. Project Title / Team Name
Make sure you have a well represented title for your project or a team name that really summarizes what the project is about.
#2. Project Description
Quick description of what the project is about, what kind of problem you are trying to solve and who the potential users are. Give some thought on how you would say this to a person you just met in one minute.
#3. Team / Project Logo
This is the first visual of your project which could help the project to stand out more. It is a good practice to think about the brand and market of your product from its inception.
Note: Please make your logo available in a downloadable format with a high-resolution.
The video of your project is the first introduction to the judges which could really help for them to understand deeply about your project before meeting you face-to-face. It should be more about telling the story rather than just a rundown of the technology that you implemented. This is where you are able to demonstrate your work in action and be more creative in conveying the most important information about your project.
Make sure you allot plenty of time and thought in the creation of your video. Guidelines for the video are available here and you can take a look at some of the previous winner's project videos here as well.
Note: Please make your video available in your downloadable format or provide a link to Youtube or Vimeo.
The Live Judging and Demo Event is where you demonstrate the hard work and efforts you took on your projects to industry professionals, professors and your peers. For each finalists, we will be providing an allocated spot where you will be showcasing your project. And that is why having a poster provides the best chance to present your project in front of the judges and guests. Guidelines for the poster are available here.
Note:Please make sure to read the guidelines for the poster prior to designing it.
#6. Project Website (optional but recommended)
Although making a project website, showcasing the project idea and description is optional, it is highly recommended. It could be a single page which includes any relevant information on what the project is about, information about the teammates, what's your objective, technical specifications and more. Feel free to take time and check out other projects that were successful in past CIC events.
#7. Resume of Team Members (optional but recommended)
Please provide the most updated resume for your team members so that we can create booklets out of them. The booklets will be provided to the industry professionals who will be visiting or participate as judges in the main event..
