Subject: international conference on NEW ROLES OF SYSTEMS SCIENCES

Dear Sirs and Ladies,
we are proud to be able to help to sponsor the international conference on NEW ROLES OF SYSTEMS SCIENCES. Please find details below. Let us summarise very quickly: systems sciences are about holistic thinking, integration of knowledge and depth of insight. United Nations, European Union, many international opinion leaders find officially that mankind is in trouble because we specialists poorly combine our special knowledge with holistic thinking. This conference is supposed to help all of us find a new way out of the blind alley and survive as individuals, as society, mankind, and Planet Earth.
Please, join us!

Prof. Emeritus dr. Matjaz Mulej (systems and innovation theory), convention board member

Call for Papers

A knowledge-based, technology-supported society is the key to solving current problems of mankind. The ability to understand and manage a complex, dynamic knowledge society of the future and the overall systemic framework supporting it is vital. Systems Sciences carry the promise of promoting the creation, management, exchange, integration, and application of knowledge by applying holistic / systemic paradigms and principles. Systems Sciences provide a basis for balancing the divergent needs and interests between individuals and society worldwide, between ecology and economy, between nations of various levels of development and between differing worldviews. They enable us to understand the conflict potential, to search for suitable policies, to harness complexity, and to provide adequate methods and technological tools for their resolution. The guiding themes of this congress are the new directions, challenges and roles for Systems Sciences and their potential beneficial impact on an emerging knowledge society.
