Caveats and Musts:
Before submitting your project for the Show, please consider these musts:
- You must meet the Production Deadlines outlined above
- You or a project representative must show up for the mandatory Check-In Period
- You must stay after the Show closes on the last night to help in restoring the floor
- Be long on flexibility and organization and short on entitlement
- Maintain a sense of humor. No matter what happens, it'll be alright in the end
- Plan more time than you think you nee
- Keep contact with teachers and staff; things change quickly
- Get proper sleep, and nutrition
- Maintain concern for your fellow students, staff and faculty; we'll need each other's support to make the show work. The show is a privilege, not a right. Anyone exhibiting rude behavior during the show process may be removed from the show.

Who are the producers of the show?
The Technical Producer for the show is: Rob Ryan firstname.lastname@example.org
When do I need to sign up by?
You need to sign up through the online signup by By 12PM NOON on Wednesday, May 1st. At any time before that date you can fill in/modify the information about your project and your space and equipment needs. Be sure to associate it with the Spring Show 2013 venue. The equipment and space is not allotted on a first come, first serve basis but you might as well get it started early.
How are projects selected for the show?
Space and equipment will be in high demand and it will not be possible to take all submissions, so projects are judged by the following criteria:
- Project is from a class in the current semester
- How well will the project show in this venue. Not too big (space), not too long (time), not too much equipment
- How far along is the project, is it likely to be finished?
Group Projects - What's Required?
I'm in a group project; who should sign up?
Your group should select a point-person to be the primary contact responsible for the show.
This person should:
- answer all equipment and space questions
- sign up in the online signup, and
- stay with the project through the entire show.
How many projects can I have in the show?
Every project should have one person who is principally responsible for it. That means you will be with it all the way all through the show, to demonstrate it, answer questions from guests, make sure it's working, and see to it that it's cleaned up at the end. You can't take prime responsibility for two projects, so if you have two projects, make sure someone else in your group project has it as their main responsibility.
How are Equipment and Space Allocated?
- Equipment is dispensed from ITPs resources pulled from the labs, gallery and equipment room
- If you have a special need and you want to communicate the need or problem, email the helpdesk at email@example.com -- Rob can let you know if what you need is feasible
- Equipment is allocated based on your project submission so make sure to add equipment and space requirements by clicking on add/edit equipment in the Projects Database - additional instructions down further
- Do not use the notes sections to itemize your equipment needs - use those areas for technical and setup notes to the producers
- If you are looking for staging space before the show please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
How many projects are there in the show?
As many as the floor can fit. Typically the floor can fit about 70 projects comfortably, 80 if we're stuffed to the gills.
I've got a project that I want to put in the stairwell/lobby/roof/mars. What do I need to do?
The building management staff, who would make that decision, frowns on us putting projects in odd places. We can ask, but your chances are slim. Blocking the stairwells is illegal, for example, and putting things in the elevator blocks traffic and introduces a security risk. If you're planning anything off the floor, talk to the producing faculty before you start, at least one month in advance.
One place where projects are feasible is on the Waverly Street display screen on the corner of the building -- if your project utilizes this setup, please indicate this in the Student Notes of your submission!
Will there be signs for the projects?
We do generate signage for the Show. If you have additional posters or signage, please consider location and await space assignments first.
The signage will be located next to your project. It will be generated from the information you submit in the online signup, so make sure you fill it out in full in time!
I want to include my thesis project in the show. What should I do?
Sign up like other projects. Add the venue "Spring Show 2013" to your project. Your project will be considered along with all the other projects submitted and weighed in an equal manner. Whether it's accepted or not will not reduce your responsibilities to your thesis class or thesis week.
You can Sign up for the Spring Show 2013 at any time before Noon on Wednesday, May 11st. This Venue is currently CLOSED to new submissions until it OPENS on Monday, April 22nd.

Adding Equipment and Space
