Science of Team Science (SciTS) 2019 Conference

The Science of Team Science (SciTS) field is building the evidence base for how to conduct, manage, and support effective and efficient team-based research and ultimately enhance the science it produces.

The SciTS conference is the annual international forum dedicated to SciTS, bringing together thought leaders from a broad range of disciplines and fields, including: communications, management, social and behavioral sciences, information technology, systems science, and translational research. It provides investigators, academic administrators, and funders with state-of-the-art knowledge, strategies, and connections. SciTS scholars, scientists engaged in team-based research, institutional leaders who promote collaborative research, policymakers, and federal agency representatives will be in attendance. 

The 2019 conference for the SciTS community will be hosted by Michigan State University in Lansing, Michigan.

Join an INSciTS Special Interest Group

INSciTS Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are member-led groups that provide a “home within a home” for INSciTS members to connect and collaborate with colleagues with shared interests in the SciTS field. SIGs help to build community around shared interests and aligned activities, enable collaboration throughout the year, advance key priority areas in the SciTS field, and create opportunities to engage with external groups. Currently active SIGs address: changing academic culture to foster team science (TS) success; creating incubator spaces for TS; training for TS; scientometrics, network analysis, and data visualization; and emerging careers.  To learn more, please click on the button below.
