Industry Invited to Submit Works to RTT Emerging Technology Contest 2008

Munich - Digital content creation, interfacing & interaction, and 3D visualization are on the rise; more and more colleges and universities now offer courses involving these subjects. To make sure that projects by young talents get seen outside the classroom, the Munich-based company Realtime Technology AG created the RTT Emerging Technology Contest.
For the second time, RTT will be honoring the most outstanding projects in this competition. Tertiary institutions and students are invited to submit their current projects by March 08, 2008. The winners will then have the opportunity to present their proposals at the 9th RTT Conference in the Hofburg Imperial Palace in Vienna on April 10 and 11, 2008.
The international competition offers ambitious 3D artists a platform to present their technical marvels to a wide audience. This enables young talents to demonstrate what virtual reality is capable of today. Tertiary institutions and students around the world are invited to submit current technological projects, or work that has been specially produced for the competition, to the RTT Emerging Technology Contest 2008. Prizes will be awarded to the best submissions in the categories of “Interfacing & Interaction,” “3D Rendering & Simulation Software Technologies,” and “3D Content Realtime.”
Participating students must submit a video and short description of the project. Judges will be looking for innovation, intuitive coherence, and user-friendly projects. The winners will be granted the opportunity to present their work at the 9th RTT Conference in Vienna, April 10 to 11, 2008.
The event brings together product designers, VR specialists, and marketing experts from the automotive, aviation, and consumer goods industries. 
One of the competition’s goals is to identify potential innovations that will be significant for the future. At the very first competition, the University of Bonn (Institute of Computer Science II) and the Korean institution KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) were among the winners.
Students and tertiary institutions can now submit their projects to RTT online: For questions and further details on the RTT Emerging Technology Contest 2008, contact:
