A panel will allow to look at Human-Systems Integration through the lens of Systems Thinking.

A holistic approach to health : one of the missions of Pierre Fabre Laboratories

Caring for the human being as a whole

In order to do this, we design and develop innovative solutions that contribute to people’s well-being, from health to beauty…/...” Pierre Fabre

“Health is a holistic concept.

It does not start where illness or disability ends : it also covers harmony and each person’s self-image. As the World Health Organization has expressed it, it is a state of complete well-being, both socially and mental by speaking. Our company (Pierre Fabre Laboratories) has set itself the goal of meeting the demand for health care by providing a comprehensive approach to health and beauty. As a result research focuses on the anticipation of new solutions in both the medical and the cosmetic fields. Pierre Fabre products are meant for everyone – whether they are sick or in good health, from birth to death, for men, women and children.” (Extract from Pierre Fabre’s website)

The South European Systems Engineering tour

The so called SESE 2016 is a joined project performed by the Italian chapter of INCOSE (AISE), the Swiss chapter of INCOSE (SSSE), the French chapter of INCOSE (AFIS) and the Spanish chapter of INCOSE (AEIS). They organize a series of events in Rome, Brugg-Windisch, Paris and Madrid. The purpose of these events is to promote Systems Engineering among practitioners and interested audience, and also to strengthen the links between the chapters. The format of the events is a lecture day at each venue. The intention is to have four talks that are repeated at each venue and complemented by a number of talks held locally at each venue.




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.”

How to get the book “Exploring the branches of the Systems Landscape”?

You can get the book by sending an e-mail to brigitte.daniel.allegro@gmail.com

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.

Exploring the branches of the Systems Landscape – A new publication

The authors, Brigitte Daniel-Allegro and Gary Robert Smith, invite the reader to develop a systemic attitude when facing the inexplicable.

The problem is not the problem; the problem is your attitude about the problem”.

They explore the branches of the systems landscape.

College Publications Systems Series

Systems Science, Systems Thinking, Systems and Software Engineering can, and need to be considered complementary in establishing the capability to individually and collectively “think” and“act” in terms of systems in order to the face of the complex multi-disciplinary challenges of modern systems. Publications providing perspectives on the Frontiers of all aspects of Systems as well as publications advancing the state of Practice and Education are provided in this Systems Series.”
