This is the Splashdown 2014 registration page for external (non-Orbital student) guests. Welcome!
Make sure to scroll all the way down to select your ticket type! For first-year students who learned about Orbital during Freshmen Orientation Week and activities, please register using the corresponding ticket category below.
For all others, please make sure to choose the correct ticket category.
You don’t need to provide any evidence of registration for the event, so there’s no need to print or email the registration before coming. Your registrations help us better understand how our attendance breaks down. Thanks very much for your cooperation!
For current Orbital students who are presenting, you should not register — you’re automatically registered; since your attendance is mandatory. If you invite friends or other students, please do have them register on this page. Orbital students who did not complete the programme but whom wish to come to Splashdown, please do register as a guest. If you’re looking for the detailed Splashdown page with instructions for your (Orbital student) participation, use the Splashdown navigation menu item above.
Please ensure you provide a valid email address. We’ll be using this to provide you with a code for voting for best project for each level of achievement. Best projects at each of the three levels of achievement will win a team prize sponsored by Google!
How does Splashdown work? Splashdown is the closing event for the self-study Orbital module in the School of Computing. Students have been working throughout the summer to learn and create an IT product (often a web application) of their own inspiration. You will see the projects that they have created during this showcase and hear about how the industrial world and SoC work together to help students help themselves to level up in their programming and developer talents!
What’s the agenda like? Well, here’s the rundown about the event for the night of the 22nd:
6:00-6:45: first poster session
6:45-7:05: first oral session
7:05-7:50: second poster session
7:50-8:30: second oral session
8:30-9:00: prize ceremony and closing
Do we have to stay for the whole event? Students in Orbital are required to stay for the whole session. Other guests, please feel free to boost the teams you know and stick around to hear the oral sessions but you are welcomed to come and go as you please. There are two separate poster sessions with entirely different projects and teams, so do try to see both sessions!
Bookings are closed for this event.
