CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 11-11-2012

Boğaziçi University invites all its management and computer engineering students to present their potentially marketable research ideas in a joint summit event. The event will take place on the 12 November 2012, Monday, as an extension of the AD 432 lecture at IB201, 17.30 - 19.00.

Each idea will be presented with a 5 minute pitch presentation. The students of the two departments can come together after the presentations and form teams for submitting business plans. Management students will prepare the business plan, supported by the computer engineering students. The submissions will be evaluated by a joint committee with professors from Management and Computer Engineering plus representatives of industry, and the best projects will be given support by the university to realize the business plan. Depending on the needs of the project, this support may include office space in university incubators, investment connections, patent support, and mentoring. 

We expect ALL CMPE 491/492 students to give a presentation.

ELIGIBILITY:

All CmpE students and Management students with an idea are eligible to make a presentation. If you are unsure whether your idea is marketable or not, go ahead and present it! Joint proposals are accepted.

 

DISCLAIMER AND RESERVED RIGHTS:

On account of the nature of the competition, members of the judging panel who are entrusted with the evaluation of business plans shall not be required to sign confidentiality or non-disclosure statements.

The University shall have non-exclusive rights to reproduce and make use of proposed business plans for educational and teaching purposes.

 

ADVICE CONCERNING THE PROTECTION OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS:

Intellectual property rights that may subsist in proposed business plans shall vest wholly in the participants. With respect to copyright  in particular, authorship shall vest jointly with the members of each  team, who will have collaboratively conceived of and developed the  business plan, unless an arrangement has been made otherwise (e.g. by  way of assignment) among the members of that team. Participants are, therefore, responsible for taking any necessary measures that they deem necessary to secure copyright protection. In this respect, it may be advisable for participants to seek appropriate independent legal advice or alternatively contact the University Patent Office on campus.

Participants are also advised to ensure that the rights of any third party (e.g. trade marks or patents) are not infringed in the process of the development of a business plan or computerised implementation thereof.
