Imagine Cup 2010 Information Event at EPFL, 18. November 2009


Imagine Cup (www.imaginecup.com) is an annual worldwide student competition with categories ranging from digital arts to software design. More than 300 000 students from over 140 countries entered the competition in 2009. As with the Olympics, Imagine Cup finalists compete at the world finals, which are held in a different country each year.


 


For Imagine Cup 2010, programmers, artists and technologists aged from 16 years onwards are invited to submit innovative projects with important topic: “Imagine a world where technology helps solve the toughest problems facing us today” and to use United Nations Millennium Goals as a guiding light.
