What is InfoMatrix?

InfoMatrix is an international computer project competition, born from a desire to bring the world's best IT students together.

It is organized by Lumina Educational Institutions, the Ministry of National Education of Romania and Bucharest School Administration (ISMB) to encourage young people to apply their imagination, their passion, and their creativity to technology innovations that can make a difference in the world today.The competition is not just about promoting professional excellence; it also serves to promote intercultural dialogue and cooperation, through the involvement of students and teachers from many different countries.

This year, the competition would like to become more international in dimension and scope. To further this aim, pupils from any part of the world who meet the required skills will be invited to participate. This year we want to bring more quality to InfoMatrix and a larger participation. To fulfill this wish, are invited to talented students from all over the world.


Computer Art

Render Render Render...

Can you use digital image software or video editor?
How about 3D Design software? Are you able to turn a plain white background into a stunning display of creative talent? Or maybe make a short film from static 3D environments?
In this section you have to create 2D/3D images, animations, TV spots, videoclips or computer videos using whatever software can get the job done. 3DS Max, Maya, Adobe Photoshop, Flash, Sony Creative Software or any digital imaging product may be used as the developing platform.
"A picture is worth a thousand words" - so just think how much you could express with more pictures combined in a website


Harware Control

Build and program usefull machines...

Create a software controlling or cooperating with an electronic/mechanic device.
You are free to choose from anything! You should try to piece together your own original device, from whatever spare parts and tools you have at your disposal. However, it needs to have a software component which interacts with the hardware parts.
Creativity is as important as mechanical and programming skills in this section. Your only limit is your own imagination!



Write some code...

Create an application (i.e. Utility Programs, mobile application for Android or IOS, Edutainment and Entertainment applications, intranet and internet applications), GNU/Linux, FreeBSD or Apple MacOS X etc.
You may use any programming language (or scripting languages) you wish C++, C#, Java, Pascal, ASP, ASP.NET, PHP etc.) It is crucial that an application has usability and a proper easy-to-use interface as well as functionality. But of course, none of these matter if the key element is missing: a good idea.
If you think you're up to the challenge and are able to create a working program from top to bottom, you should definetly give it a try!
