emcsr avant garde

“The upcoming European Meetings on Cybernetics and Systems Research will be held in Vienna from March 30 to April 1, 2016.

It will be the first pop up conference meeting in the field of Systems Science and Systems Design, called emcsr avantgarde. The name reflects the vision and the core of the programme. We are looking forward to setting the stage for the contemporary avantgarde of Systems Science and Practice, connecting the achievements of the past with inspiring potentials for the future.

Thanks to the engaged emcsr 2016 selection committee a promising group of young researchers will present its ideas and will meet each other to get into conversations and to continue its trains of thought.”

Extract from the first chapter of the book

This booklet describes a candidate set of concepts for systems science, framed within what we call the Systems Tree. It is intended for systemists. We use this term for people who have the capabilities to understand complex situations, to cope with the unusual, to identify the right problem in order to solve it and who are able to take decisions keeping in mind a vision for the future. Systemists will, in the future, apply approaches based on system science to solve complex problems. Systemy is defined as the study of systems and a systemist is defined as a scientist trained in systemy.
