Why should you care about having your submission accepted for the Tomorrow Project Seattle?
1. Honor and recognition: Your work will appear in a printed anthology by University of Washington, of which Intel is a sponsor.

4. You advance thinking in emerging technology areas like robotics and autonomous vehicles.
5. You have creator rights: Intel will not sell or license your work to others for money, or charge others money to read your Work. You’re free to exercise your rights as an owner of the work, including enforcing your rights and making money from your work. You retain rights to your work.
Science fiction matters to the progress of science fact, as Intel futurist Brian David Johnson knows. Brian’s job is to help develop a practical vision for computers and gadgets in the year 2020 for Intel. He’s the author of “Science Fiction Prototyping: Designing the Future with Science Fiction,” as well as serving as the Intel mentor to Tomorrow Project Seattle with University of Washington Assistant Professor, Department of Human Centered Design Sarah Perez-Kriz. “Science Fiction Prototyping” intersects with Tomorrow Project Seattle by promoting more informed conversations about the future with science luminaries.
Will you be among the luminaries? Tomorrow may never know, but the Tomorrow Project Seattle does. The Dreaded Deadline Doom approaches.
