Welcome to the INSciTS 2023 Annual
Conference Abstract Submission Platform

Deadline to Submit Workshops: May 1, 2023
EXTENDED: Deadline to Submit Paper & Poster Abstracts: May 18, 2023

The 2023 Science of Team Science Planning Committee is pleased to send out the call for abstracts for the 2023 INSciTS Conference, to be held in Bethesda, MD, USA, from July 24-26. We are planning an in-person conference for our stakeholders.

The INSciTS Annual Conference is the flagship event of the International Network for the Science of Team Science (INSciTS). It continues to be the premier annual gathering of scholars, practitioners, and providers in the field of Team Science, bringing together a broad range of disciplines to share and advance the latest evidence-based methods in team collaboration and transdisciplinary science. Speakers and attendees will include investigators, administrators, students, funders, and policymakers. Our community includes academia, government, industry, and many other sectors, and spans a multitude of knowledge domain spaces. Anyone interested in improving collaborative research and discovery is welcome!

INSciTS 2023 will take place in vibrant downtown Bethesda, MD, proximal to the nation’s leading universities and federal research sponsors, and a short subway ride to the world-famous museums and galleries of Washington, DC. 

We have worked hard to design a conference for both those who wish to return to the rich experience of in-person conferences. 

The INSciTS 2023 Conference Planning Committee welcomes abstracts for workshops, paper presentation, poster presentations, and panels.
