Envisioning the Future of Computing Prize Workshops

Monday, January 30, 2023 at 2:30pm to 4:00pm


The Social and Ethical Responsibilities of Computing (SERC), a cross-cutting initiative within the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing, in collaboration with the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, invites MIT students to envision the future of computing.

We want to hear your ideas, aspirations, and vision for what you think the future holds. The winning entry of the Envisioning the Future of Computing competition will be awarded a $10K prize.

In preparation, a series of workshops will be held throughout IAP to teach students the skill of writing a technology impact paper and to offer help and advice on creating such a paper for the prize. Students interested in submitting an entry are highly encouraged to attend a workshop.

The first workshop will provide general information on the competition and guidelines on how to write this kind of paper (no sign up is necessary for this workshop). The next three workshops will provide opportunities for participants to present and get feedback on their work. Presentation slots are limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Friday, January 13, 3:00-4:00 pm in Room 4-145

  • Tuesday, January 17, 2:30–4:00 pm in Room 4-265

  • Wednesday January 25, 1:00–2:30 pm in Room 2-265

  • Monday, January 30, 2:30–4:00 pm in Room 2-132
