IFSR 2005
The New Roles of Systems Sciences

The First International Congress of the
International Federation for Systems Research

November 14- 17, 2005
International Conference Centre
Kobe, Japan

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.
