Conference NYU Social Media & Political Participation Conference (SMaPP)

By Invitation Only


Location NYU Abu Dhabi Saadiyat Campus Center

Hundreds of millions of people around the globe use social media every day as means of communication, information acquisition, opinion formation, and more. Given its ubiquity, this novel medium of interaction has drawn the interest of scholars in the social sciences and beyond. To that end, the SMaPP global group consists of scholars from the social sciences, statistics, data science, engineering, natural sciences, and industry who have come together to tackle and discuss novel ways of harnessing the wealth of data on social media usage and interaction for the study of behavior. In this conference, members of the SMaPP global group will present research and tools related to the extraction and analysis of social media data.
