ignorance and uncertainty

All about unknowns and uncertainties

Digital “poster” and Integration and Implementation Sciences Conference

leave a comment »

I’ll indulge in a bit more shameless advertising here, but it’s directly relevant to this blog. First, I’m one among several plenary speakers at what’s billed as the First Global Conference on Research Integration and Implementation (8-11 September). As the entry webpage says, the main goal is bringing together everyone whose research interests include:

  • understanding problems as systems,
  • combining knowledge from various disciplines and practice areas,
  • dealing with unknowns to reduce risk, unpleasant surprises and adverse unintended consequences,
  • helping research teams collaborate more effectively, and
  • implementing evidence in improved policy and practice.

Although the physical conference takes place in Canberra, Australia, we have an extensive online conference setup and co-conferences taking place in Germany, The Netherlands, and Uruguay. Most of the conference will be broadcast live over the net.

In addition to the information about the program, participants, and events, you can get a fair idea of what the conference is about by browsing the digital posters. So this is where the shameless advert comes in. My digital poster is essentially a couple of slides of links describing my thinking about ignorance, uncertainty and the unknown over the past 25 years or so. The links go to my publications, posts on this blog, and works by others on this topic. You can get to my poster is by scrolling down this list and clicking the relevant link.
