Computer simulations are not just for entertainment. Many industries such as engineering, architecture, health professions, and education, make use of high-end computer simulations for visualization and/or training. CSGC provides a platform for these rarely seen simulations a chance to be showcased to the public.

SUBMISSION OVERVIEW

The computer simulation showcase is designed to recognize and reward individuals/teams that have worked hard to produce a computer simulation that provides a visualization of a project or training procedure. Individuals or teams of up to 4 people can enter a computer simulations, using the simulation software of their choice (ie. Solidworks, AutoDesk applications, Adobe Captivate, Unity, Unreal, etc.). Computer simulations will be judged based on all aspects of the visualization of a real world project or procedure.

Presentation Video (3 to 5 MINUTE video)

All submissions must include a Presentation (Youtube video).
The game pitch should include the following information

  • Overview - overview of the the computer simulation
  • Context- who and what is the computer simulation intended to  be for and used for
  • Visualization - sample footage of the computer simulation
  • Development Team - who are the people who designed and developed this project
  • Project Summary - Provide a summary of your submission

Presentation video must be submitted via a public Youtube link 

  • Videos visibility settings must be set to public for viewing
  • When uploading the Youtube video (under details , tags) you must include the tag #CSGC2019

These videos will be aired throughout the day of competition on the main hall projector and CSGC will also reserve the right to publicly share these videos across our social channels.

 

EXHIBITION SET-UP

All submissions must be displayed during the exhibition day (April 13) of CSGC.  A maximum of one functional set-up for the submission is required. Entrants must bring their own equipment to display their computer simulations for judges and expo attendees during the event. See full competition rules and regulations for details about set-up and equipment.

JUDGING

Judges will review all submissions prior to the day of competition. All submissions must be submitted by April 7, 2019.  All submissions must be displayed by the entering team on April 13, 2019, for the entirety of the exhibition. Winners will be announced at the Award Ceremony following the exhibition; winners must be present to receive award.

Below are the judging criteria for the Computer Simulation Showcase

  1. Creativity -  Is the idea unique? Does it provide a new twist or an out of the box idea?
  2. Context - Does the computer simulation provide visualization for a concept, idea and or theory to be fully understood and assessed?
  3. Visualization - Are the visuals consistent and appealing? Has it been edited/staged with thought and intention?
  4. Technology -  Does it demonstrate a level of expertise in this medium? Does the submission make use of interesting or advance techniques and/or technology?
  5. Other - If present judges may take note of in additional feature such as interaction and animation.
