We invited students from all over the planet. We advertised widely, and used various means of communication. The scoring system has been researched, and improved. We expanded our lists. We plan to continue with this important venue for the students worldwide with the 2016 theme, and encourage exploration of technological tools. We plan to advertise early, so students have enough time to develop challenging projects, and to alert more teachers and parents about this opportunity. The SPACE-Time Competition brings the following aspects to the conference:
- Provides a springboard for further technical and artistic efforts. It encourages students to challenge themselves, and become active. Students are invited despite of their major. This means students studying any direction related to technology have a chance to experience this challenge. This expands the role of an artist, and encourages art majors to take technological challenges seriously, and technically inclined students to expand their interests toward visual solutions.
- Provides service to some part of the SIGGRAPH technical community, and promotes SIGGRAPH and the conference among young specialists.
- Broadens participation geographically, and among under-represented members of the SIGGRAPH community.
