Hosted by Gallaudet’s CREST Network, a National Science Foundation-funded initiative, CREST Fest is free to students, researchers, academics and developers throughout the world.

The CREST Fest website has been updated with five new keynote lectures and two “open conversations,” with Dr. Richard Bowden and Dr. Jonathan Henner; and Myles de Bastion and Toby Fitch. Five more events are scheduled in the next four weeks; all are open for registration to anyone who is interested. For more information, visit the CREST Fest website.
