The CSforALL Summit is a multi-day convening focused on rigorous, inclusive and sustainable computer science for all US students. There will be two plenary sessions where you will hear from both local and national stakeholders impacting systems change within CS education and highlighting their 2019 commitments. We will also host mini plenary sessions where you will be able to dive deeper into the conversations. 

NEW this year we have added a number of topic specific breakout sessions, upon registering, you will have the option to select one session in the early afternoon and one in the late afternoon. Due to limited space and participant curation, registration is offered on a first come first serve basis.
