The Social Media Lab at the Dalhousie School of Information Management invites you to attend the first ever Social Media Lab – Elsevier WebApp Concept Design Competition to be held in the Dalhousie University Student Union (6136 University Ave), Room 224 on Tuesday, October 25, 2011, 1-3pm.
Elsevier is offering $3,000 in prizes and challenging Dalhousie students to help more than 15 million researchers, medical professionals, librarians and students navigate scientific content, improve scientific search and discovery, visualize sophisticated data in more insightful and attractive ways and stimulate collaboration.
Since September, over 50 students in 19 teams from four different programs (Library and Information Science, Computer Science, Health Informatics, and Engineering) have been working on various ideas to design the next great web application for Elsevier’s new SciVerse search and discovery platform.
This event is organized as a poster presentation and is open to all members of the Dalhousie community. No registration is required to attend the presentation as a guest. Light beverage and snacks will be provided, courtesy of Elsevier
