IMAGINE CUP 2011 - Pakistan


The Software Design competition challenges students to explore their own creativity by using technology to solve what they consider to be the toughest problems facing the world today. The Imagine Cup provides the incentive, but the competitors provide the genius behind innovative, dynamic, and powerful software applications. Using Microsoft tools and technology, competitors can unleash their ideas and technical talent to create cutting edge software applications. Students will develop, test, and build their ideas into applications that can change the world.

In order to help better understand this year's theme – Imagine a world where technology helps solve the toughest problems" – we recommend familiarizing students with the eight United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The MDGs identify some of the toughest challenges in the world today. Learn more about the 2011 Theme.

If a student chooses to compete in this Competition, then he/she agree that his/her participation is subject to the following:

 The Imagine Cup Official Rules

 The Imagine Cup Software Design Competition Rules and Regulations described below

 Any applicable Imagine Cup Software Design Local Competition Rules posted on Imagine Cup Pakistan web site.

If there are any inconsistencies between the Imagine Cup Official Rules, the Imagine Cup Terms of Use, and/or the Imagine Cup Code of Conduct, the Imagine Cup Official Rules will govern.

Problem Definition
How precise and relevant is the real world problem? How interesting or difficult to resolve - functionally or technically - is the problem being challenged? For this criterion, we only focus on the problem challenged, not on the solution created to solve this problem. How well does the project adhere to the current 2011 Theme?

Solution Design & Innovation
Does the application approach a new problem, or look at an old problem in a new way? Is the solution completely innovative or does it rely on an existing concept/technology? Does the application impact a large number of people very broadly, or impact a smaller number of people very deeply? To which degree does the application actually solve the current problem?

Technical Architecture & User Experience
Is the system architecture broken down into logical chunks and modules? Is the project technically open to some evolution? Is it only made with a monolithic block or does it present interfaces enabling extensions (SDKs or APIs)? To which degree are the HMI (Human Machine Interfaces) intuitive, ergonomic and user friendly? Does the application leverage the presence of fresh and updated data?

Business Viability
Is the application technically and economically viable? Is this solution only theoretical or does it have a realistic application for commercial purposes? (Not necessarily here and now, but eventually in the future and/or for certain markets).

The judges will be looking for oral presentations that provide background and context to the project, explain why the problem is an interesting one, highlight how the system works, and include an insightful demonstration. Teams will also be evaluated on their ability to take questions from the judging panel.
