COVID-19: Your health and safety are important to us. We plan for SSSI 2022 to take place in person at Washington University in St. Louis, MO. We will carefully monitor the cases in our region and follow University guidelines for holding this event.

NEW FOR 2022…our Systems Thinking track!

In this track, participants will learn about complex systems fundamentals through hands-on activities applying systems thinking to social and public health problems. Instructors will use interactive demonstrations and scenarios to consider how different systems science methods can be used to examine complex problems.

At the Systems Science for Social Impact (SSSI) 5-day Summer Training Institute, participants get a hands-on introduction to systems science methods that enhance the social impact of health and social science research. Led by experienced systems science scholars, this in-depth training institute features five major systems science tracks: Agent-based Modeling, Group Model Building, Social Network Analysis, System Dynamics, and Systems Thinking. Participants will revise the major concepts of their chosen track, learn analytic best practices, and apply the methods to real-world data.

The workshops are designed for faculty, advanced graduate students, recent graduates, and professionals from public health, social work, and social sciences.
