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.



Talks present participants with the opportunity to present their research, experience, projects or implementations of their App Inventor-related work. Each presentation will last no longer than 15 minutes with an extra 5 minutes specifically dedicated to questions. Authors who wish to submit possible topics to be considered for talk sessions at the App Inventor summit must submit a 2-3 page abstract following the talk formatting guidelines.

Posters provide an interactive forum in which authors can present their work to attendees during poster sessions. We especially encourage students to submit their work-in-progress projects related to App Inventor. The poster sessions will be held over lunch and during coffee breaks. Posters provide an opportunity to describe new work or work that is still in progress using App Inventor.

Google App Inventor

Today, almost 100 million people in the United States are using a smartphone, and the number is growing rapidly. These devices not only have put the Internet in our pockets, but also have altered our ideas of computers as static machines. One of the most important areas of research at MIT concerns ubiquitous computing. During a sabbatical year at Google, professor Hal Abelson invented software that would enable everyone to program an “app” for his or her phone. Google App Inventor (renamed the MIT App Inventor in late 2011 when Google stopped supporting the project) is new, but it represents a key philosophy espoused by Abelson: “If your phone is going to be an influential force in your life, then you should be able to shape it to suit your needs whether or not you have a degree in computer science or electrical engineering.”
