Competition Information

The competition will comprise of two rounds:

Round 1 - On the Spot Competition:

  1. Here participants will be given a problem statement based on LabVIEW. This is a time based round.
  2. The Competition will involve both making and completing simulations using LabVIEW software.
  3. Sample Problem uploaded.
  4. Visit the SimCity resource page to download the sample Problems and reference manuals.

Model Presentation:

  1. Here Participants have to show there working models/simulations based on LabVIEW.
  2. Teams will be given a 10 minute time period prior to model presentation at the venue to connect and test the model. Here participants can do necessary changes to their code, hardware etc.
  3. During model presentation, Please note that your model must be functional throughout this time period, any repairs or additions will not be permitted. This will be a judging session.
  4. All teams are supposed to bring their own equipment to set up and present their models. No requests to the event managers shall be entertained in this regard.
  5. The entire model must be accommodated on a table of size 2 ft X 4 ft. No additional space will be provided for the circuit placement.

Abstract Details:

  1. All teams will have to submit an abstract of their model, not exceeding 1000 words explaining their model, by 15th January 2008. The abstract can be in doc/txt/pdf format and should be renamed as SSXXXX.ext, where XXXX stands for the registration number of the participants and ext id the extension of the file.
