Aurora is essentially a Conference on Computer Science organized by the Society of Computer Science of University of Sri Jayewardenepura. Aimed at introducing IT careers to school students and also to improve their IT skills, Aurora also brings qualified professionals in the IT industry for a day of discussions and presentations.
This year, Aurora 2K17 will be held on the 17th of March 2017, at the University of Sri Jayewardenepura from 7.30 AM to 3.30 PM. The conference is aimed at both school students and undergraduates to give them practical exposure to popular industrial technologies. The conference will also be divided into two sections: the conference and a competition.
The focus topic for the conference would be Smart Technology. This is set to change our lifestyle in the not too distant future and future computer scientists will definitely take the lead in this revolution. As such, Aurora 2K17 aims to inspire these prospective minds to “Think Out of the Box” and innovate in this futuristic field.
The conference will consist of two guest lectures who are experienced industry professionals, a panel discussion and an exhibition to covering the main focus area of Aurora 2K17. These will be conducted by respected Scholars and experienced industrial professionals.
The competition is open to all school students. However, only one team can participate from each school. A total of 20 teams will be selected to take part. The structure of each team must be as follows:
The competition itself will be a two-part event.
The first part involves each member of the team facing an online questionnaire. The category of questions will range from graphic designing to programming to web designing and general ICT. From there, the top 10 teams with the highest average marks will qualify for the second round.
The second round again has two steps. Step one involves the top 10 teams designing a web page including home page and one more page that incorporates the ability accept and submit provided data. Guidelines for the page and internet access too will be provided.
Step two is where the participants have to enter data that has been previously provided into the for which they designed. From there, they would have to store the data in a database via the given web service. After all this is done, an oral presentation would have to be made in front of the board of judges within a period of 5 minutes.
Registrations end today and seating is limited so if you want to be a part of this, we suggest you make your move fast. You can click here to register and here to check out the event on their Facebook page.
As always, we at ReadMe will be there to bring you the latest and greatest as and when it happens so if you see us, do give us a wave.
To all those competing, may the odds be ever in your favor.
