This blog entry is a repost from Netvibes’ blog.

If you’re a fan of music, indie films and emerging technologies, Austin will definitely be the place to be in the forthcoming days. Between March 8 and 17, the capital of Texas will hold the famous South by Southwest (SXSW) conferences & festival. Fostering creative and professional growth alike, SXSW is the premier destination for discovery.

Can’t make it to Austin? Not a problem: we’ve got you covered. To make sure you won’t miss a thing, we’ve set up a comprehensive Live Dashboard gathering all the relevant info in one single place, including:

  • social networks monitoring (Twitter, Facebook, Google+ etc.)
  • blogs
  • movies & pictures
  • agenda
  • exhibitors and sponsors profiles
  • and more…

Like with every Live Dashboard, Netvibes will give you access to the advanced tools only available with our Premium Dashboards, like SmartFilters and Analytics. With our latest apps (like Social Search), easily keep up with all the news and announcements and don’t miss a single bit of info about SXSW. Follow the event from your desktop, on your mobile phone or in your couch.

Also featured on the Live Dashboard, you will find Dassault Systèmes’ contribution to SXSW through the Giza3D project demonstrating jointly with Harvard University how 3D Experiences are pushing their way into the classroom as a new kind of learning medium. If you will be attending SXSW, here is more details about the time and venue.

World-Changing Dreamer: Ismael Cendejas

IFWEFollowing our previous blog post on IF WE Challenge third winner Andjelic Zoran, the turn is now to our second prize winner Ismael Cendejas. Ismael is coming from Mexico, but has recently studied in University of Victoria, BC, Canada. His winning IF WE Dream was: “IF WE design more exoskeletons we can help more people with different capacity”.

As a matter of fact, Ismael is working on two projects in this domain:

I have two projects about Exoskeletons. The first is about the Design of an Exoskeleton for training people with Parkinson’s Disease, which is part of a thesis of a bachelor. The second one is a Design and Matlab simulation of a portable exoskeleton for hand rehabilitation. […] The most critical engineering discipline in these projects I think is Systems Engineering because all the diseases and patients are different, in that way they need to be treated personally, implying the necessity to develop a program for each one.

Ismael was kind enough to share the following pictures with us :)

Ismael has been using CATIA and SIMULIA for his project. As a winner of the second prize, we’re happy to provide Ismael with a high performance laptop (shown above) coming with 3DS software, thus adding our small contribution to this project with a great social impact potential.

Keep up the good work, Ismael!  :D
