The fourth annual HUBweek takes place Oct. 8–14 in locations around Boston and MIT campus, and similar to HUBweeks past, the festival will feature a strong MIT contingent.
More than 60 Institute community members and MIT-connected start-ups will present their work and research at HUBweek, the Greater Boston area’s annual “festival of the future.” MIT alumni and researchers will present on an array of topics and ideas, with session titles like Lunch with Robots (Joseph Jones ’75, SM ’77), the Intelligent Heated Jacket (Gihan Amarasiriwardena ’11), and Technology and the Movement of Food (Knight Science Journalism Fellow Cynthia Graber). See the full HUBweek schedule of nearly 250 events.

According to MIT News, the Kendall Square neighborhood will serve as a key area during HUBweek and will be the site of the all-day Innovation Playground on Oct. 9, which will feature a range of exhibits and activities that include the groundbreaking ceremony for the new location of the MIT Museum.
All MIT alumni and friends are invited to celebrate HUBweek. Some events are specially designed for the Institute community, including events in Kendall Square and at the HUB, HUBweek’s central location in Boston’s Government Center. (The MIT-connected events below require the free HUBweek general admission pass for entry.)
