The QInF 2017 Finals will be held at Qualcomm headquarters in San Diego on April 5th and 6th, 2017.
The Finals presentations are a major part of the winner selection. Both members of each finalist team are expected to attend and present at the Finals.
About the Finals presentations
Prepare a 12 minute presentation (with an additional 3 min for questions). Please practice to ensure that you adhere to the time limit.
You must submit your presentation slides in PDF or PowerPoint format and poster in PDF only format by 11:00pm PST on Wednesday, March 22nd 2017.
The submission site will be open on March 1st, 2017. Details of the format of the slides and poster are below.
SUBMISSION SHOULD BE A SINGLE ZIP FILE CONTAINING THE THREE OR FOUR DOCUMENTS: PRESENTATION SLIDES, PDF OF SLIDES _FORPRINT, FIRST POSTER, AND OPTIONAL SECOND POSTER.
The presentations you submit will be preloaded on a computer provided by us for the Finals. Due to the presentation setup and to minimize the switching time between teams, you cannot use your own laptop for the presentation.
Students must use the submitted PowerPoint or PDF slides for their presentation.
The presentation schedule of the QInF Finals will be provided at registration on the first day.
About the slides
12-slides maximum, including the cover page. The presentation slides generally include:
- The idea
- The differentiating factors from state of the art
- The execution plan and strength of the team
We do not recommend adding slides with references. If you do, they would also count towards the 12-slide limit.
Please do not use animations purely to get around the 12-slide limit.
Please ensure that all external media is embedded in the PDF or PowerPoint file itself, e.g., videos. The PDF/PowerPoint file must be self-contained.
In addition to your presentation, please provide a for-print PDF (8.5" x 11" landscape) of your presentation (max. 12 pages). The name of the for-print PDF should end with "_forprint.pdf". It should have the same content (sans animations) as your presentation.
About the poster
Due to the tight program, we offer a poster session, where you have the opportunity for in-depth talks with the judges and Qualcomm engineers.
Each team may submit up to two posters (PDF format required, 24" x 36").
We will print the posters for you ahead of time and provide the easels at the poster sessions.
