    • You must show up for the mandatory Check-In Period

ATTITUDE

    • Be long on flexibility and organization and short on entitlement
    • Maintain a sense of humor. No matter what happens, it'll be alright in the end
    • Plan more time than you think you need
    • Keep contact with teachers and staff; things change quickly
    • The show is an excellent opportunity to get user feedback from people who don’t share your background or assumptions. If possible, design your work to encourage unguided feedback from the audience. Use it wisely. Don’t disagree with visitors, take note of what they don’t understand or don’t respond to in your work. 
    • Get proper sleep, and nutrition
    • Maintain concern for your fellow students, staff and faculty; we'll need each other's support to make the show work. The show is a privilege, not a right. Anyone exhibiting rude behavior during the show process may be removed from the show.

SHOW QUESTIONS

WHO ARE THE PRODUCERS OF THE SHOW?

The Faculty Producers of the show are: Gabe Barcio-Colombo email me and Luisa Pereira Hors email me

The Technical Producer for the show is: Rob Ryan rob.ryan@nyu.edu

The Student Producers for the Show are: Tushar Goyal and Ivy Huang



WHEN DO I NEED TO SIGN UP BY?

Submissions begin on Wednesday, November 28


Submission Deadline: 11:59PM Sunday, May 5  


At any time before the deadline, you can fill in or modify the information about your project and your space and equipment needs. Be sure to associate it with the Spring Show 2019 venue. The equipment and space are not allotted on a first come, first serve basis but you might as well get it started early.



HOW ARE PROJECTS SELECTED FOR THE SHOW?

Space and equipment will be in high demand and it will not be possible to take all submissions, so projects are judged by the following criteria:

    • Project is from a class in the current semester
    • How well will the project show in this venue. Not too big (space), not too long (time), not too much equipment.
    • How far along is the project, is it finished and ready for presentation?
    • Video Demo URL

You must provide a 30-second video prior to the deadline on Sunday, May 5 that shows us what your project is and how you will talk about it with visitors, convey it's meaning and demonstrate that it's working or will be working.  Please show us the project in action if it's a physical interactive. If it’s still under construction, give us a visual explanation of what the user will experience and evidence that you have the construction under control. You can edit the URL and swap out another video as you make progress, and we encourage you to put in a final video demonstration of the project in action once the website goes dynamic. 


GROUP PROJECTS - WHAT'S REQUIRED? What is a point person?

I'm in a group project; who should sign up?

Your group must select a point-person to be the primary contact responsible for the show.

This person should:

    1. answer all equipment and space questions
    2. sign up in the online signup, and
    3. stay with the project through the entire show

HOW MANY PROJECTS CAN I HAVE IN THE SHOW?

Every project should have ONLY ONE point person who is principally responsible for it. That means you will be with it all the way, all through the show, to demonstrate it, answer questions from guests, make sure it's working, and see to it that it's cleaned up at the end. You can't be point for two projects, so if you have two projects, make sure someone else in your group project has it as their main responsibility. Whoever that person is must know how to operate, explain, and fix (if needed) the project on their own.

If you are submitting a solo project to the show, you do so with the understanding that you will not be able to have any other solo projects in the show, nor act as point on any other group projects.


HOW ARE EQUIPMENT AND SPACE ALLOCATED?

    • Equipment is dispensed from ITPs resources pulled from the labs, gallery and equipment room
    • In general, you will need to supply your own computer for the project - ITP is in a better position to assist with peripherals like displays, projectors, speakers, Kinects, etc.
    • If you have a special need and you want to communicate the need or problem, email the help desk at itp.helpdesk@nyu.edu -- Rob can let you know if what you need is feasible
    • Equipment is allocated based on your project submission so make sure to add equipment and space requirements by clicking on add/edit equipment in the Projects Database - additional instructions down further
    • Do not use the notes sections to itemize your equipment needs - use those areas for technical and setup notes to the producers
    • If you are looking for staging space before the show please contact: itp.helpdesk@nyu.edu


HOW MANY PROJECTS ARE THERE IN THE SHOW?

As many as the floor can fit. Typically the floor can fit about 70 projects comfortably, 80 if we're stuffed to the gills.


I'VE GOT A PROJECT THAT I WANT TO PUT IN THE STAIRWELL/LOBBY/ROOF/MARS. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

The building management staff, who would make that decision, frowns on us putting projects in odd places. We can ask, but your chances are slim. Blocking the stairwells is illegal, for example, and putting things in the elevator blocks traffic and introduces a security risk. If you're planning anything off the floor, talk to the producing faculty before you start, at least one month in advance.

One place where projects are feasible is on the Waverly Street display screen on the corner of the building -- if your project utilizes this setup, please indicate this in the Student Notes of your submission!


WILL THERE BE SIGNS FOR THE PROJECTS?

We do generate signage for the Show. If you have additional posters or signage, please consider location and await space assignments first.

The signage will be located next to your project. It will be generated from the information you submit in the online signup, so make sure you fill it out in full in time!
