Hub Spotlight: Science & Technology hosted by Google

Yesterday we shared details around the People & Society Content Hub and provided specific ways for you or your organization to get involved. Today’s Hub Spotlight is focused on Science & Technology, which will be hosted by our friends at Google New York.


If you’re looking to gorge on the latest disruptive social technologies or explore the more academic side of the social and mobile media space, then Google’s Science & Technology Hub will be your home away from home during Social Media Week New York.

As you can imagine we are faced with a plethora of options in terms of specific topics to focus on.  The general ones we are looking at right now cover the following areas:

  • Behavioral Psychology
  • Behavioral Economics
  • Cognitive Sciences
  • Anthropology & Sociology

Technology wise, again, we’re not short of options.  Here are a few we’re thinking about:

  • Augmented Reality
  • Social Data
  • Mapping & GPS
  • Futurism
  • Open Source Movements
  • APIs & Open Standards

These are by no means comprehensive lists; however, they give you a flavor of what we’re considering prgrammingwise.  Tell us what else we should be thinking about.  Tell us what’s missing!

Specifically, if you or your organization is interested in curating a session and helping to shape the programming at the Science & Technology Hub, we would love to hear from you.  Sessions are typically two hours in length and can either be a series of talks, a panel, a workshop or seminar.  We encourage our guest curators to think creatively about their sessions and consider designing an experience that moves beyond traditional conference formats.

To submit a session idea, please visit the event registration page and reference which Hub you are interested in, in your application.

If you are interested in sponsorship or media partnership opportunities, we have some really exciting ways for brands to participate  in the experience and contribute to the programming. For more information please contact:

The Science & Technology Hub is brought to you by Social Media Week organizers Crowdcentric & Google.
