ICSE 2015 Video contest

Florence is a city of art: by bringing ICSE 2015 to Florence we want to encourage a cultural blend between art and science. One way to express this blend is by participating in the ICSE 2015 video contest!

ICSE is also yours and we really want to see how you feel part of it! In this spirit, the ICSE 2015 Organizing committee invites you to submit your proposal for a promotional video, titled “The top three reasons I wouldn't miss ICSE 2015”. We then invite all to express their preference among the submitted videos.

We will select three finalists among the submitted videos based on a public vote. The winner will then be selected by a jury. The winning video will become the official promotional video for ICSE 2015 and will be featured on the ICSE web site and on social media channels. The author of the winning video will receive a complimentary registration for ICSE 2015's main conference.

All participants in the contest (who comply with the rules) will receive a free ICSE 2015 t-shirt.

Videos must not exceed 3 minutes in length and must be submitted from March 23 through April 18 May 4, 2014 (AoE).

Please read the submission guidelines and the official rules before submitting your videos!
