Required Elements your entry must contain all of the following required elements:
  • Your Team’s entry must address a social cause connected to the 2011 Theme: “Imagine a world where technology helps solve the toughest problems”.
  • Your Team’s application must run on the Microsoft .NET Framework. You may use any version of .NET.

Optional Elements
Your Team’s entry must utilize features of at least one (1) of the optional elements:
Judging Elements
  • 10% – Problem Definition: How precise and relevant is the real world problem? How interesting or difficult to resolve – functionally or technically – is the problem being challenged? For this criterion, we only focus on the problem challenged, not on the solution created to solve this problem. How well does the project adhere to the current Imagine Cup Theme?
  • 35% – Solution Design & Innovation: Does the application approach a new problem, or look at an old problem in a new way? Is the solution completely innovative or does it rely on an existing concept/technology? Does the application impact a large number of people very broadly, or impact a smaller number of people very deeply? To which degree does the application actually solve the current problem?
  • 30% – Technical Architecture & User Experience: Is the system architecture broken down into logical chunks and modules? Is the project technically open to some evolution? Is it only made with a monolithic bloc or does it present interfaces enabling extensions (SDKs or APIs)? To which degree are the HMI (Human Machine Interfaces) intuitive, ergonomic and user friendly? Does the application leverage the presence of fresh and updated data?
  • 15% – Business Viability: Is the application technically and economically viable? Is this solution only theoretical or does it have a realistic application for commercial purposes? (Not necessarily here and now, but eventually in the future and/or for certain markets).
  • 10% – Presentation: The judges will be looking for oral presentations that provide background and context to the project, explain why the problem is an interesting one,
    highlight how the system works, and include an insightful demonstration. Teams will also be evaluated on their ability to take questions from the judging panel.
(For Proposal Round, this 10% will be – Judge’s discretion).
