Inaugural Dartmouth Innovation and Technology Festival set for May 12–14

You are invited to the Dartmouth Innovation and Technology Festival, where science, technology, energy, business, and the liberal arts intersect in the heart of the West End District, a new development on our historic campus.

The Dartmouth community, Upper Valley neighbors, and others are invited to join expert alumni, international thought leaders, scientists, engineers, technology visionaries, and entrepreneurs for three days dedicated to discussing big issues, asking big questions, and exploring the art of the possible, in the new West End District of campus, Thursday through Saturday, May 12–14.

The weekend will feature panel discussions on topics ranging from how cryptocurrencies affect the global economy to how space ice may help us understand the Earth's climate, the future of transportation, innovations in women's health, and more.

CS faculty and students will present their latest research at a poster session that will be held jointly with Dartmouth Engineering. Also scheduled is an open house, where department faculty and students will welcome visitors to the Engineering and Computer Science Center (ECSC) for a tour of research labs and maker spaces.

Other highlights include the dedication of the ECSC building; a Friday night street festival with a community light show; open houses and interactive programs showcasing collaborations among students and faculty across disciplines; a start-up competition hosted by the Magnuson Center; Formula Hybrid + Electric vehicle displays; a Saturday food truck festival; and more. Attendees are invited to tour the recently completed Engineering and Computer Science Center and the Arthur L. Irving Institute. All festival programs are free and open to the public.
