The CSforALL Summit is a multi-day convening focused on rigorous, inclusive and sustainable computer science for all US students. There are audience-specific workshops and events for specific stakeholder groups, and a live-streamed plenary celebration open to all. Due to limited space and participant curation, registration is offered on an invitational basis for a number of the events.
