Dear Science of Team Science Community,
We wanted to remind you that we are about a week out from the deadline for abstract
submissions (due on April 25th, 2022). For more information, see the conference
ts>. Note, though, that
abstract submissions are open, so you may submit your abstracts at any time at the
Second, as you may have seen, the call for workshops is also
ps>. The deadline for
workshop submissions is May 1st.
Third, we are pleased to announce that Dr. Margaret Palmer, director of the National
Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) at the University of Maryland will be
joining Dr. Wanda Ward, and Dr. Staša Milojević, as one of our invited speakers.
As you know, 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!
Recall that we are planning an in-person conference that is virtual attendee friendly. We
have designed a conference for both those who wish to return to the rich experience of
in-person conferences, as well as those who prefer virtual attendance while still
benefiting from the knowledge exchange. And the committee is working hard to ensure a
rewarding experience for our registrants.
You can always review the SciTS website for more information and if you have any
questions, please let us know. We look forward to seeing you this summer in Bethesda,

Science of Team Science 2022 Invited Speakers
* Dr. Margaret Palmer, Distinguished University Professor at the University of
Maryland, director of the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC). Dr.
Palmer is known for her work at the interface of science and policy and in bringing
together collaborative, cross-disciplinary research groups that work to identify
data-driven solutions to society’s most challenging and complex environmental problems and
ultimately inform decision makers.
* Dr. Staša Milojević, Associate Professor of Informatics in the Luddy School of
Informatics, Computing, and Engineering, and director of Center for Complex Networks and
Systems Research (CNetS). Dr. Milojević is a leader in the study of the dynamics of
research teams, collaborative networks, formation and evolution of scientific fields, and
research metrics. She is particularly interested in understanding how dramatic changes in
knowledge production, exemplified by a shift towards “team science”, interdisciplinarity,
and increased pressures on productivity impact the dynamics of scientific workforce and on
the overall pace of science.
* Dr. Wanda E. Ward, who is Executive Associate Chancellor for Public Engagement,
Office of the Chancellor, University of Illinois Urbana- Champaign. Dr. Ward is a leader
in science, with 26 years at the National Science Foundation, including positions such as
Senior Advisor to the Director and Head of the Office of International and Integrative
Activities. She has also served on the U.S. President's National Science and
Technology Council subcommittees and interagency working groups in the areas of the
social, behavioral and economic sciences, and science education and workforce
