The IVP 2017 is a retro and demoscene event held since 2003, mostly in Krakow, sometimes in Zywiec. The party usually is a ZX Spectrum and Sinclair meeting. From time to time it has its Multiplatform Edition, although even then it's strongly focused on Spectrum. IVP is a small event but this time there came 20 people in total; dudes comin' from PL, UK, DE, FR. Mostly Sinclair and BEEPER scene members but also Atari 8bit and Atari 16/32bit users. (Plus Topaz the Dog). We had presentation made by Utz / Irrlicht Project (DE) about modern BEEPER engines for ZX Spectrum and a presentation by Pin & Mono (PL) about emulating ZX Spectrum on expanded Atari XL/XE monster-machines. We had a long Friday excursion within Krakow's Old Town parts and Krakow's pubs. Lots of vodka, lots of beer. We also had a LO-FI graphic compo for standard, monochrome, Z80-based Texas Instruments graphing calculators (TI-82, TI-83, TI-83 Plus, TI-84 Plus, and compatible models). Works were submitted as 96x64 pixel, 2-color (black/white) *.bmp files. Entries have been converted into the TI format by the compo organizers. (Maximum of two works per author).
