Launch Date: 1st May 2017 Closing Date: 1st October 2017 Announcement of Winners: IEEE SSCI, Hawaii, NOVEMBER 27 to DECEMBER 1, at the Awards Ceremony Category 1: Best Video Category 2: Best Interactive Tutorial / Demo Prizes sponsored by the IEEE computational intelligence Society Prizes are for each category First Prize: $500 USD Second prize: $300 USD Third Prize: $200 USD Visit: http://cis.missouri.edu/CISStudentComp/
A core purpose of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of society and humanity. As student members of the Society, your research is fundamental to the future of technological developments that can make a difference to people’s lives. The IEEE Computational Intelligence Society invites you to tell your own research story using any type of artefact which must be accessible online i.e. (a short video presentation (max 5 minutes), an online game, an interactive piece of software which demos your work etc. The Artefact must be able to explain the main ideas to pupils aged 14 – 18 and convey why working in the field of computational intelligence is exciting, a part of our everyday lives and be used to inspire others.
To enter the competition: Students must submit an artefact about their own research in the field of computational intelligence using any type of artefact which must be accessible online i.e. (a short video presentation (max 5 minutes), an online game, an interactive piece of software which demos their work.
Students can submit to one Artefact to one category only. The Categories are
Category 1: Best Video
Category 2: Best Interactive Tutorial / Demo
Prizes will be awarded for each category.
The student must be an IEEE CIS student member.
Each student must register on the competition website. Registration will open soon.
The type of artefact and its category must be selected. One submission allowed per student.
Each student must submit:
A short report (max 2 pages) providing the following information
Name of Student, Educational Institution, Supervisory Team, Start and End Date of the research Project, Brief Summary of Research Project, Type of Artefact, Name of Artefact, brief description of artefact, A statement of how the research benefits society and humanity.
for web-based game/ interactive demos submissions: Submit a link (optionally encrypted by a password) to their web-based game or a web-based interactive demo. Web-based games should be able to be run in any browser.
A ZIP file containing all the files (including code) related to the web-based game or a web-based interactive demo.
A set of instructions on how to use the application / run the demo / play the game. This will include what programming platforms and languages were used for development.
All items should be submitted as a zip file.
For short video presentations (max 5 minutes in length), the video should be uploaded onto YouTube and a link should be submitted.
