Symposium Poster Competition

Showcasing the Latest Research in AI, Machine Learning, and Advanced Analytics in Manufacturing and Operations

At each MIT MIMO Symposium, students from MIT present their research on the use of artificial intelligence, optimization, and advanced data analytics to benefit manufacturing and operations. These poster presentations feature cutting-edge applications of innovative technologies to real challenges in industry, offering attendees a chance to explore new methods for achieving intelligent operations. Participants are eligible for many different monetary prizes, which are awarded by academic and industry experts

2024 Poster Competition

MIT Machine Intelligence for Manufacturing and Operations (MIT MIMO) and MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (MIT CSAIL) are excited to announce the 3rd annual MIT MIMO Symposium, AI: Accelerate Impact. The Symposium will take place on April 30th and feature a poster session to showcase student research projects, which will be judged by a panel of academic and industry experts for $10k in cash prizes. If your work leverages data science, optimization, or AI to impact manufacturing or operations relating, we want you to enter in the competition! Special prizes will be awarded for projects relating to our theme for this year, Sustainability. Fill out this form and see below for next steps. 

  • Who: Poster session entrants will feature MIT students in CSAIL, the School of Engineering, Operations Research, Sloan, and more. The panel of judges will include MIT faculty and industry practitioners. A list of speakers for the general symposium can be found on the MIMO symposium website.  
  • What: We are looking for students conducting research in data science, optimization, analytics, machine learning, and/or AI with the intent of improving manufacturing and/or operations. Entrants will be expected to bring a poster for display and give a quick pitch to judges during the session.  
  • Where: All symposium activities will take place at the MIT Wong Auditorium.  
  • When: The poster session will start at approximately 5 PM on Tuesday, April 30th. Prize winners will be announced before 6:30 PM. Poster session entrants are encouraged to bring their posters by 9 AM and stay for the Symposium events. (Note: final schedule is still in work
  • Why: Students entering in the poster competition have a unique opportunity to network with faculty, industry practitioners, and other student, recruit with companies leading implementation of AI in manufacturing and operations, and win $10k in cash prizes.
  • How: Please fill out this form with your contact information and project description. The deadline for submissions will be Wednesday, April 17th, but projects/poster content does not need to be complete until the week before the event. We will send details on how to proceed after the poster session finalists are selected. Contact if interested.
