Dear SciTS Colleagues – If you have not already seen, registration is open for the 13th Annual International Science of Team Science Conference.  You can find the relevant information at this link.  Also, for those who submitted to the conference, we’ve sent out acceptance notifications to a majority of the submissions.  If you have not yet received yours, we hope to get that out to you shortly.  

We'd also like to thank those of you who attended our first Summer of Team Science event last week, “Future Directions in Team Science:  Exploring the Role of Big Data and Data Analytics”. These events are designed to prime people for the conference, and to augment what INSciTS can do for its community.  We had nearly 100 people in attendance with a stimulating discussion during the seminar.  Due to a number of requests, we also recorded the seminar, and we will be posting that to the website.  In the next week, we hope to be sending out information on our next summer seminar prior to the conference.

If you have any questions on the conference or registration, please feel free to contact our Event Coordinator, Christi Rich (

Thank you,
Stephen M. Fiore, Conference Chair & Heather Billings, Conference Co-Chair

13th Annual International Science of Team Science Conference

Virtual Conference

July 31-August 3, 2022 

SciTS is the flagship event of the International Network for the Science of Team Science (INSciTS). As the premier annual gathering of scholars, practitioners, and providers in the field of team science, we bring together a range of disciplines to share and advance the latest evidence-based methods in team collaboration and transdisciplinary research.  Speakers and attendees include investigators, administrators, students, funders, and policymakers. Our community includes academia, government, industry, and other sectors, and spans a multitude of knowledge domain spaces.  And we offer a full day of workshops free for conference attendees as our way of providing professional development for our stakeholders.  Anyone interested in improving collaborative research and discovery is welcome!
