What is Bits On Our Minds '02? 

It's a fair that showcases student efforts and creativity in digital technology and applications. We will be using previous BOOM events as prototypes, but will be including many other disciplines throughout the University.  BOOM '02 is being held via two mediums--the web, and a poster session.  All projects are required to have a URL or an abstract giving a summary of the project.  If you have an exciting student project in this area, please use this great opportunity to show off your work. For more information, email:  
The BOOM '02 Committee will select outstanding projects for display in the Upson Hall 3rd floor display cases.

Submit a Project

Any Cornell student or group of students may enter a project. No faculty sponsorship is required. 

In order to submit a project a FORM* describing the title of each project must be submitted at our website. The projects will each be displayed by putting a description on the web and at an afternoon poster/demo session. One member of the team should be on hand at all times to describe the poster. It will be possible to bring in a computer to demonstrate the projects.
