Digital Societies and Social Technologies Summer Institute Helps to Bridge Common Interests Among Different Research Communities

The Digital Societies and Social Technologies (DSST) 2013 Summer Institute took place at the University of Maryland College Park, College of Information Studies from July 28-August 1.  It built on traditions established by the CSST (Consortium for the Science of Sociotechnical Systems) summer institutes and the Summer Social Webshops.  The focus was on bridging the “social” and the “technical” to address critical problems including disaster response, disease prevention, cybersecurity, and new product development.
