Innovation Showcase

Building on the success of last year's Gaming Showcase, this year WSTS will feature an all-new Innovation Showcase dedicated to displaying many creative and impactful student projects from diverse disciplines across the UW System.

What can I present?

This special session is meant to showcase innovative, hands-on projects in any academic discipline. Students are invited to display their projects among their statewide colleagues in parallel with the Poster Symposium. Just as innovation can take on many forms, students' final, tangible products may be very diverse. Presenters are welcome to demonstrate their project using any of the following formats:

  • Poster
  • Prototype
  • Computer Display
  • Application Storyboard

This list is not exhaustive. Please list any special space requirements on your project submission.

How to submit a project

  1. Register for WSTS 2017
  2. On the registration form, indicate you would like to participate in the Innovation Showcase and upload a 1/2 page abstract briefly explaining your project
    • Please include the names of everyone who worked on the project, as well as your faculty mentor, in your registration. Each student who would like to present or attend WSTS should fill out a separate registration form, but only one student from each team should submit an Innovation Showcase project.
  3. Bring all physical aspects necessary to demonstrate your project with you to WSTS the morning of July 24, 2017.
