We are glad to have the chance to send this invitation to you and hope you can nominate your students and refer to the right contact persons for us. I was one of graduates in Computer Science and I understand the importance of having the chance to have exchange of our IT-related FYP among students among different institutions. Also, we can introduce both new technologies and our good students to the industry and general public. It is the 8th year for us and iProA to hold this meaningful event. On behalf of Internet Professional Association(iProA), we would like to invite you to nominate the best three IT-related final year projects (FYP) from your department/faculty to participate in the Pan-Pearl River Delta Region University IT Project Competition 2013 (http://www.strikingly.com/panprd2013). Outstanding FYPs will be selected to participate in an open exposition to be held on 8th June 2013(Sat) in the first round judging in Hong Kong.
The Competition is organized by the ShenZhen Computer Federation (深圳市計算機學會) with iProA as the co-organizer for the Hong Kong region.
This project aims to recognize the academic achievements of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) projects in the Pan-PRD region, including Fujian, Jiangxi, Hunan, Guangdong, Guangxi, Hainan, Sichuan, Guizhou andYunnan (nine provinces) in China, Hong Kong SAR, Macao SAR and Taiwan.
