A calendar of lectures, seminars, conferences, workshops and other events sponsored by the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research.

Videocasts of OBSSR-sponsored lectures, seminars, conferences, and symposia. The BSSR Systems Science listserv is a communication tool for keeping members apprised of relevant news and events; it is not a discussion board. The messages disseminated on this list are focused on those related to the intersection of behavioral and social sciences with systems science, particularly as this intersection relates to matters of health. For example, the listserv is used to announce lectures of interest, training opportunities, and funding announcements. If you or a colleague would like to subscribe to this list, simply email Patty Mabry at with full contact info, including name, title, degree, institutional affiliation, department, discipline, email address, and phone number, and she will be happy to add you to the listserv.

Mailing List for Seminars and Lectures. To receive announcements of activities relevant to the behavioral and social sciences at the NIH (e.g., lectures, conferences, job opportunities), please join one of two electronic mailing lists (listserv). The BSSRIG-L list is only for NIH staff, and the BSSR-EVENTS-L is for all others (e.g., general community, staff at other government agencies). To join, send an email from the address at which you would like to receive announcements.
