July 8 – July 10, 2014 (arrival July 7; departure July 11 for 3 full days)

University of Missouri – Columbia, Columbia, MO

MOOCs, Education and learning; personal health and well-being; open innovation, 
eScience, and citizen science; co-production, open source, and new forms of work; 
cultural heritage and information access; energy management and climate change; 
civic hacking, engagement and government; disaster response; cybersecurity and 
privacy – these are just a few problem domains where effective design and robust 
understanding of complex sociotechnical systems is critical.  To meet these 
challenges a trans-disciplinary community  of scholars has come together from 
fields as wide ranging as CSCW, HCI, social computing, organization studies, 
information visualization, social informatics, sociology, information systems, 
medical informatics, computer science, ICT for development, education,  learning 
science, journalism, and political science.

Summer Institute, Captiva Island 2011

Through summer institutes (CSST), extended workshops (Social Webshop), 
preconference workshops at a wide variety of venues, and other activities (Digital 
Societies and Technology Research Coordination Network) this community of 
researchers from academia and industry has developed a strong focus on problems 
and opportunities arising from the interplay of social and technological systems 
which span individuals, groups, organizations, and societies.

The 2014 Summer Institute builds on this tradition to strengthen and expand this 
diverse community by bringing together graduate students, post doctoral students, 
faculty, and other researchers in four groups at the University of Missouri – 
Columbia on July 8 – 10, 2014:

Doctoral students, post doctoral students, pre-tenure faculty, and early career 
researchers – Through mentoring, peer networking, and skill-building tutorials, 
doctoral students, post doctoral students, pre-tenure faculty, and early career 
researchers will identify substantive ways that the theories, approaches, and tools 
within the larger community can advance their work with the design and study of 
sociotechnical systems.

Established researchers – Prior summer institute/workshop participants and 
established researchers will network with other researchers (senior and junior), 
explore ideas and new directions, shape emerging research agendas, articulate 
critical challenges, and share knowledge about practices, tools, and approaches 
which have the potential to advance the design and study of sociotechnical 
systems.

Emerging multi-disciplinary research teams – Nascent groups of researchers 
seeking to develop cross-disciplinary collaborations will work with peers and 
mentors to refine problem statements and research goals; connect with 
collaborators with complementary skills and interests; and create actionable 
research agendas and funding proposals.  Preference will be given to groups 
interested in designing and studying sociotechnical systems that address societal 
grand challenges such as (but not limited to) healthcare; energy management and 
climate change; cybersecurity and privacy; education and learning; disaster 
response; technology development and innovation; economic development and 
work; and civic engagement and participation.

Research infrastructure development teams – Groups of researchers interested in 
creating computational or analytic tools, data resources, training materials or other 
infrastructure to support the design and study of sociotechnical systems will work 
with one another, other Summer institute participants, and local developers.  These 
infrastructure “hackathon” sessions will result in the creation of use cases, 
prototypes, draft materials, and when possible deployable systems and resources.

Applying for DSST 2014
Applications are encouraged from all academic, industry, NGO, and public sector 
organizations worldwide.  To apply for the 2013 Summer Institute, select the group 
that best fits your needs and situation and send the appropriate materials to the 
Summer Institute co-coordinator (Sean Goggins) at [log in to unmask] by 
March 20, 2014:

Doctoral students, post doctoral students, pre-tenure faculty, and early career 
researchers should send their CV and a short (~ 1 page) response to: “How 
does/will your work advance our ability to design and understand critical 
sociotechnical systems?”  Several core references should be included to situate 
your work within the larger research community.  Doctoral students should also 
provide a letter of recommendation from their advisor/department chair indicating 
their expected graduation date.

Established researchers should send their CV and a short (~ 1 page) response to:  
“What are the most interesting challenges and opportunities related to the design 
and study of critical sociotechnical systems?  What activity (30 minutes to 4 hours 
long) could you run that would help the Summer Institute participants better 
engage these challenges and opportunities?”  Proposed activities can be for any (or 
all) Summer Institute participants and might include, but are not limited to: 
focused presentations; brainstorming sessions; in-depth problem descriptions; 
method, tool, or data tutorials; or research agenda setting exercises.

Emerging multi-disciplinary research teams should apply as a group, sending their 
CVs and a short (~ 1 page) response to:  “What is the research focus/problem 
domain?  What types of activities/studies are needed to engage that domain?  How 
will pursuing this agenda help advance our ability to design and understand critical 
sociotechnical systems?” References potential funding sources can be included, if 
known, to situate the proposal within the larger research community.  Groups 
invited to the Summer Institute will have between 4-6 people.  However, only 3 
individuals need to be part of an application for it to be considered (assistance will 
be provided prior to the Summer Institute to help invited teams recruit additional 
participants as needed).  Preference will be given to cross-institutional teams in 
which junior/mid-career researchers play significant leadership roles.

Research infrastructure development teams should apply as a group, sending their 
CVs and a short (~ 1 page) response to:   “What is the problem you are seeking to 
address?  What will you do to address that problem?  How will creating these 
technologies, tools, materials or infrastructure improve our ability to design and 
understand critical sociotechnical systems?” References to examples from other 
domains can be included to situate your proposal.  Teams invited for the Summer 
Institute will have between 4-6 people from multiple disciplines and institutions.  
However, only 3 individuals need to be part of an application to be considered 
(assistance will be provided prior to the Summer Institute to help invited teams 
recruit additional participants as needed).

Lodging, meals, and other onsite costs will be covered for all Summer Institute 
participants.  Limited travel support is available, if needed, for participants from US 
and Canadian institutions (with preference given to doctoral and post-doctoral 
students). Travel support may also be available for other Summer Institute 
participants. To be considered for all available financial support you should provide 
the following information when you apply:

What college or university do you attend?
What is your primary department affiliation?
If you are applying from a Canadian university, are you a member of the GRAND 
network?
Materials should be sent to Summer Institute co-coordinator (Sean Goggins) at 
[log in to unmask] by March 20th, 2014.  Applications will be reviewed by the 
Summer Institute Advisory Group beginning March 30th, 2013 using the following 
criteria:

Clear articulation of the hoped-for contribution to the theory, practice, or design of 
sociotechnical systems
Likelihood of Summer Institute participation providing significant practical benefit 
for the individual/team
Contribution to a balanced and diverse group of participants
The number of participants selected will depend on the available funding and the fit 
between applicants’ interests and goals. 

For more information about the Summer Institute, contact the Summer Institute 
co-coordinators, Sean Goggins ([log in to unmask]) and Diane Bailey 
([log in to unmask]).  For information about the broader community of 
researchers interested in design and study of sociotechnical systems, see:  CSST 
(www.sociotech.net), the “Researchers of the Socio-Technical” Facebook group, or
