Networking: Archived Webpage from the First i2S Conference

This is an archived page from the website of the 2013 First Global Conference on Research Integration and Implementation.
Please note that this is a copy of a page from the original conference website which was hosted elsewhere; some links (eg to the conference venue) have been removed and some of the material within the page refers to functionality that is no longer available (eg references to material in the right-hand column).
A full site map of the archived website shows all the pages and elements that were on the original conference website. 


Networking and participation – face-to-face or online – is built into every aspect of the First Global Conference on Research Integration and Implementation. The conference provides opportunities for systems thinkers to interact with transdisciplinarians, for project managers to compare notes with action researchers, for team science researchers to find common ground with implementation scientists and much more.

Virtual networking is available anytime, anywhere. If you have a LinkedIn profile you can add conference delegates to your network. We have an active LinkedIn group. Delegates can post comments for individual digital posters and participate in discussion streams. You can also follow us on Twitter or checkout the hashtag: #i2sconference.

At the on-site conference, we’ve scheduled ten hours for networking activities (see Canberra program), with additional time available in the evenings. This time includes opportunities for planned and spontaneous networking events led by delegates. We’ll begin with a “monster” networking event on Sunday September 8, 2013 (4-8pm) to set in train ways for delegates to find each other and interact.

Delegates – virtual and onsite – are invited to make videoclips of networking events related to the conference and we’ll compile and post them. There is a prize for the most effective networking event linking onsite and virtual delegates.


You can start online networking right now through LinkedIn and the LinkedIn group (Research Integration and Implementation Network). LinkedIn allows you to start connecting with many other conference participants leading up to the event and to continue those connections when the conference is over.

The LinkedIn group provides one way to:

  • Receive conference updates;
  • Read what other conference participants are saying;
  • Post a comment or link for discussion.


Commenting on Digital Posters

There are around 200 digital posters available for viewing and comment (click on the green VIEW DIGITAL POSTERS button in the upper right column).

Digital posters provide a great way to identify the work of most interest to you and to connect with the authors. Join in the discussion or be the first to start a discussion on the ones most pertinent to your work.


You can follow us on Twitter @i2sConference to get the latest conference updates. We are also using the hashtag: #i2sconference.

During the conference, there will be a Twitter moderator for the plenary sessions, who will direct selected questions and comments to the speakers.

Networking at the Canberra event

The onsite conference in Canberra has a range of formal and informal networking activities, especially the Sunday monster networking event, skills enhancing workshops, and networking lunches.

Virtual participation in the plenaries

You can send comments and questions to presenters through a moderator in real time and also at a later date through the commenting function which is part of the video viewing technology. Click on the purple LIVE & ON-DEMAND VIDEO button on the upper right hand side. (You can also interact using Twitter – see above.)

Networking at the co-conferences

We’re very excited about the co-conferences. If you cannot come to Canberra, see if you can make it to one of these other venues to follow the plenary presentations, join discussions about the digital posters and meet other participants ‘live’.
