National Instruments India has announced VI Mantra 2008, an annual technical paper contest to nurture innovation and creativity in engineering education. VI Mantra is a national level competition for students and researchers in India to present their innovative applications in the field of graphical system-based design, control and test.

VI Mantra provides students and researchers the opportunity to showcase their work to the Indian academia and industry. They are encouraged to send in practical solutions to problems, their main projects and prototypes based on LabVIEW and the NI toolkits. A panel of judges including experts from the Industry and reputed academic institutes will shortlist the winners. The winner from each category along with his guide, will attend the worldwide conference on Virtual Instrumentation to be held during NIWeek 2009 in Austin, Texas.

Graphical programming has proven to nurture innovation and creativity in engineering education through collaborative project-based learning. NI provides a common graphical framework for academia, industry and research, which enables visualisation of truly multi-disciplinary engineering concepts and enables experiential engineering education. The experiential education approach works well for the industry and at the same time helps engineering students learn the concepts that work in the real world, thereby bridging the gap between industry and academic learning.

The contest has two categories: student and research scholar. To participate send a 200 word abstract of your project(s) in the stipulated format to NI will call for papers for the selected abstracts. The best 50 abstracts will be published and the top three entries will be rewarded. The last date for submission of abstracts is 20 Aug, 2008.
