The next EMCSR is scheduled for 22-25 April 2014. As always, it will take place in Vienna hosted by the University of Vienna.
As in 2012, the USP of the meeting is the self-reflection of the field, that is, the provision of a European hub for the discussion of the foundations of systems disciplines and the societal impact of the systems movement.
This time, however, the focus is on the performance of systems disciplines in the face of global challenges. We want the meeting revolve around systemic contributions to the technological, ecological and social aspects of necessary change.
Civilisation at the Crossroads – Response and Responsibility of the Systems Sciences is the common theme. Thereby “Systems Sciences” is meant to include every scientific approach – be it in engineering sciences, real-world sciences, formal sciences or philosophy – that uses the notion of systems.
You are called upon to participate and shape the set of the meeting by suggesting topics you would like to share under the common theme. You are called upon to draft your own symposia. The Call for Symposia is out now. Please go to http://www.emcsr.net/call-for-symposia-2014/ for details.
