Posters provide an interactive forum in which authors can present their work to attendees during poster sessions. We especially encourage students to submit their work-in-progress projects related to App Inventor. The poster sessions will be held over lunch and during coffee breaks. Posters provide an opportunity to describe new work or work that is still in progress using App Inventor.
