The International Development Design Summit (IDDS) 2008 will take place from July 14 through Aug. 8.
The inaugural IDDS occurred last summer, bringing students, mechanics, social workers, doctors, carpenters, farmers and professors from 18 countries together to collaborate and build technologies to improve the quality of life in the developing world. The summit is headed by MIT Senior Lecturer and MacArthur Fellow Amy Smith, and is organized by MIT, Caltech and Olin.
