The MIT App Inventor Summit is the annual gathering of the world-wide App Inventor community. Hosted by the MIT Center for Mobile Learning and the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), this summit brings together a diverse range of individuals, including: research scientists; educators from formal and informal settings; NGO staff members; computer scientists; representatives from industry; entrepreneurs; and others. The intimate size, exhilarating program, and accomplished attendees make the MIT App Inventor Summit the ideal opportunity to share current work, form new collaborations, and stay abreast of the latest developments within the MIT App Inventor community.
The theme of this Summit is MAKE! The three days will consist of workshops, DIY, and hackathons where participants will get their hands dirty by learning new skills and creating apps. The Summit will be organized into tracks. Two tracks identified thus far are Education and Health/Medicine. The final day will include a keynote address, poster presentations and sessions, and a showcase for the projects worked on the previous 2 days.
MAKE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT!
We are excited to include Expedition_Hack: The Environment as part of the Summit. On Wednesday, June 22, Summit attendees can choose to participate in a day-long hackathon with the environment as the theme. Apps created during the hackathon will be showcased on Friday.
Posters provide an interactive forum in which authors can present their work to attendees. We especially encourage students to submit their work-in-progress projects related to App Inventor. The poster sessions will be conducted on the last day of the summit.
