Welcome to the March/April i2S News which provides updates on resources added to the Integration and Implementation Sciences website (, as well as a list of blog posts published on the Integration and Implementation Insights (i2Insights) blog (

You may recall from the January/February 2018 News that we’ve changed the way we present conferences. They now have a permanent presence on the i2S website: see They are still presented in the six categories below, and here we also report the number of conferences in each category in brackets:

  • Interdisciplinarity, transdisciplinarity and action research methods (6)
  • Systems, modelling and simulation (34)
  • Team science and project management (3)
  • Uncertainty, risk and decision making (8)
  • Bridging the gap from research to policy and practice (8)
  • Other (including sustainability science) (9)

We’ve now added all the conferences we know about to this list and we’d be pleased to hear about any we’ve missed. Selected conferences and relevant one-off conferences are featured in each News.
