Emergence of a multiplicity of behaviors in complex systems is a crucial
topic in modern science. It relates to many scientific issues like
complexity, the role of the observer, collective behaviors, the concept of
transformation (like in phase transitions), dynamic usage of models,
uncertainty principles, issues related to cognitive science and to
consciousness, to social systems in economics, ethics, education, and many
others listed in the topics of the conference. The conference then focuses
on "Systemics of emergence" in complex systems, based on tools and
approaches introduced in different disciplines, different from the original
one based on devices, archetypes, holism, and methodologies.
