SciTS is a rapidly growing cross-disciplinary field of study that aims to build an evidence-base and to develop translational applications to help maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of team based research.
The 2006 National Institutes of Health SciTS Conference<http://cancercontrol.cancer.gov/brp/scienceteam/index.html> was key to launching the SciTS field. Nearly 10 years later, the 2015 NIH SciTS 2015 Conference is positioned to review the current state of knowledge in the SciTS field, highlight applications for enhancing team science, and discuss future directions for advancing SciTS to improve the global scientific enterprise.
The NIH SciTS 2015 Conference (http://www.scienceofteamscience.org) will bring together thought leaders in the SciTS field, scientists engaged in team-based research, institutional leaders who promote collaborative research, policy makers, and federal agency representatives.
With this year’s conference located in the Washington DC, metro area, a range of federal agencies will be participating, creating a unique focus on effective practices and policies, translational applications of SciTS scholarship, and approaches to evaluation.
This year’s conference will also highlight the interface of the SciTS field with current hot topics and emerging trends, including diversity in science teams, big data, citizen science, open data, and research networking. The conference will feature invited speakers in addition to submitted panels, papers, and posters.
A registration site will be available in January. All attendees must register, though there will be NO REGISTRATION FEE for the conference!
Call for abstracts – Submission Deadline: February 12, 2015
