This is a further update on the First Global Conference for Research Integration and Implementation.

The First Global Conference on Research Integration and Implementation (September 8-11, 2013) features digital posters as a new way to showcase your work. Use these brief PowerPoint presentations to advertise your past achievements and current projects in integration and implementation research and education. Digital posters become available for viewing and comment as soon as accepted, and those already online are receiving several views per day. The digital posters will form the basis of a comprehensive online repository after the conference.


Go to [LINK REMOVED] I2Sconference.org to submit a digital poster and to register for the conference.

The conference offers a world-first opportunity to interact with a wide range of leading experts in systems-based, action-oriented, inter- and trans-disciplinary investigations, to discover relevant new ideas and share your work with interested colleagues.

There are sixteen plenary talks, a plenary panel and a plenary debate including:

  • Julie Thompson Klein on “Interdisciplinarity Then, Now, and Into Networked Futures”
  • John Young on “Knowledge vs Politics: How Research can Contribute to Better Policy”
  • Michael Smithson on “Dealing with Unknowns”.

Trans-disciplinarity will be covered by Christian Pohl, Ulli Vilsmaier, Matthias Bergmann and Merritt Polk, action research by Hilary Bradbury-Huang, systems thinking by Gerald Midgley and George Richardson and there’s much more: see [LINK REMOVED] I2Sconference.org /program/plenary-talks/.

The conference will close with a plenary debate “That effective approaches to complex real-world problems need an underpinning discipline like Integration and Implementation Sciences”: see [LINK REMOVED] I2Sconference.org program/plenary-debate/.
