IEEEmadC starts on 15th February 2016

 

IEEEmadC (Mobile Applications Development Contest) is a new international contest organized by IEEE for all student members across the globe. The main goal of the IEEEmadC is to provide additional competitive activities for students in the scope of computer science. By competing, students would focus on developing their technical, social and team skills. In IEEEmadC, teams of up to three students are invited to devise and develop mobile applications that could contribute to the IEEE community or apply technology for humanity. IEEEmadC is organized in four main stages (Education, Idea, Development and Judging stage) within 5 months and the new edition of IEEEmadC 2016 will start on 15th February 2016. We invite all students to participate in this contest and win attractive prizes.
