Cognition is the annual technical festival organised at the SIES Graduate School of Technology. As one of the premier technical festivals in the city of Navi Mumbai, Cognition defines what it means to be a holistic collegiate festival - an amalgamation of stellar technical prowess and a creative ethos designed to entertain and enthral the wide range of audiences that attend this festival each year.
In the Era before discrete GPUs and teraflops of performance was a time of gaming simplicity. Electronics and Mechanics went hand in hand to produce a gaming environment that amused an entire generation and beyond. This ‘Age of the Arcade’ also laid the foundation for the modern gaming community that has gone from spanning a neighbourhood competing for high scores at the local arcade to a worldwide family of gamers.
To celebrate this golden age of gaming and the confluence of technologies, this year Cognition is themed after ‘Arcade’ - an homage to those games that defined our childhood, implemented with today’s tools and resources. Having made a flight into Space in 2015, and a venture into the Virtual World in 2016, experience the pleasures of Time Travel at Cognition 2017 as we revisit Arcade, games from days gone by.
