How to Enter

To submit an entry for the art-in-science competition, first register for the symposium. After you register, login into your account and you'll be presented with options near the bottom of the page to submit image and/or video entries. Note entries must be submitted by no later than 5:00 PM on 24 February, 2017. For video entries, the system will attempt to extract a frame near the middle of the video for preview and prize puposes. If you would prefer a different frame be used for these purposes, please send it to the webmaster (leger.2@wright.edu) and be sure to include the DCASS abstract id assigned to your entry.


Winners are selected by a popular vote of DCASS attendees. First, second, and third place image entries will each win a free meal to the Spring Awards Banquet and will receive a framed print of their entry. Additionally, two video entries (one each for computational and experimental video categories) will win a free meal to the Spring Awards Banquet and a framed print of a still image from their entry.
