According to the AT&T contest website, the contest seeks to recognize innovative and creative mobile applications that enhance academic performance, build campus community, and help improve campus operations.

Yinlin placed 5th for his entry called “Academic Conference Finder” which is an iPhone/iPod Touch application for students, professors, and researchers retrieving information about international conferences, workshops, journals, and seminars in the Computer Science field. Yinlin’s application has been downloaded from 33 different countries around the world and is available in the iTunes store.

The top three winning entries, from Harvard, Ball State, and Northeastern, respectively were announced on: http://higheredcontest.wireless.att.com/
