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.

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.“
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.
