The Vision Statement
   The CSIDC will
       advance excellence in education by having
        undergraduate student teams design and
        implement computer-based solutions to
        real-world problems
       impact undergraduate curricula
   Establish a competition that is
    prestigious, technically substantive, and
    well worth the time and effort to
   Improve the dialogue between
    universities and colleges and
    professionals in industry and
The IEEE Computer Society

The Health Care Information
Appliance Project
   The Health Care Information-Appliance
    Project required the students to develop an
    informal functional specification and then
    design and implement a prototype
    Information Appliance (IA) aimed at
    improving public health by helping people
    become more directly involved in their own
    health care. The IA should allow a person to
    enter, access, display, store, and manipulate
    information about health related issues.
Evaluation of Submissions
               50 Project Submissions

       Each SET evaluates 5 submissions and
         identifies the top 2 projects of the 5

          The JP evaluated the 20 selected
        projects and identifies top 10 projects

               The top 10 projects are
         presented, demonstrated and judged
             at the CSIDC World Finals
