What is BOOM?
It's a fair that showcases student efforts and creativity in digital
technology and applications. Participation is open to all Cornell
students, and attendance typically includes a diverse group from the greater Cornell community as well as many visitors. It's a great
opportunity to show off your work involving digital technology. It's also a great opportunity to broadly disseminate the results from your
independent research. Finally, it's a great way to find out about cutting edge work at Cornell involving digital technology.
This year, BOOM '04 is being held via two mediums--the web, and a poster session. All
projects will be showcased on the web, and a smaller set of outstanding projects chosen by the BOOM'04 Committee will be
displayed in the Upson Hall 3rd floor display cases. For more information, email:
The project might be theoretical in nature or involve an interesting program. It can be an
interesting extension/enhancement of a project turned in for a course or the result of an
independent research project. Especially encouraged: A project that does not fall within
the scope of any one course--e.g., a computer game that illustrates an interesting aspect
of some course, a novel tool for the web, a new tool for generating art, etc.
