The Appathon works to educate the next generation of technologists, innovators, and leaders. From researchers to entrepreneurship trailblazers, this conference is a unique opportunity to interact with the leaders in the fields of AI and application development through workshops and panels. As part of this event, students will also have the chance to compete in a competition (ideathon), where they can submit business pitches and/or prototypes for an app that can have a real-world impact. However, if students wish to only attend events such as workshops and speaker events they may do so, as submitting a project is not required.

Reminder: Register here as well as through Devpost, and join our Discord.

Note: Submissions are done through this form, not Devpost.
