MIT Arab Science and Technology Conference
Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 8:00am to 5:00pm
This year, the Arab Students’ Organization has decided to take SCITECH in a whole new direction. With the purpose of making the annual event more engaging to the MIT undergraduate and graduate population, and the student and professional community in the greater Boston area, SCITECH has been reimagined in the format of a conference for the tech community, celebrating scientific excellence and offering members of the Arab community a platform to share their lifelong achievements.
The event is meant to not only celebrate and honor some of the leading industry/research figures in the Arab world but to also provide attendees with the unique opportunity to learn from their success stories and engage with them in enriching discussions about the challenges of our time. In this spirit, we plan to include the following elements:
Keynote speeches by industry and academic leaders about their work in their respective fields and the impact it has on our world
Panel discussions with the opportunity for Q&A’s to answer our attendee’s burning questions about modern issues facing the young Arab scientist/entrepreneur and the Arab world as a whole
Short TED-style talks that showcase some of the most interesting projects and ideas happening right now
- Conference Exhibition displaying some of the most exciting research projects / emerging startups in the Arab world and giving sponsoring companies a chance to network with attendees
