Behaviourial Interventions: an introductions to the Multiphase Optimization Strategy (MOST) for engineering better behavioural interventions, led by Linda Collins, Pennsylvania State University. 
Behavioral interventions, for example, interventions aimed at helping people to quit using tobacco or other drugs, increase their physical activity, lose weight, or overcome depression, play an important role in public health. In this half-day workshop Linda Collins will describe an alternative framework for building and evaluating behavioral interventions.

Missing data: analysis and design, led by John W. Graham, Pennsylvania State University.
