Organized around the theme of Partnership for Impact, the 2023 Convening will explore how universities can partner with government, companies, universities and community organizations to foster public interest technology and address modern challenges. Topics from past Convenings, including data privacy, equitable design, cybersecurity, ethics in AI, public infrastructure, green technologies and more, will be discussed.
