The International Society for the Systems Sciences Conference
July 2013 will be an exciting time in the history of the International Society for the Systems Sciences.
We warmly invite you to join us in a unique experience that will contribute significantly to making systems thinking more mainstream. The 57th Annual ISSS World Conference - Curating the Conditions for a Thrivable Planet: Systemic Leverage Points for Emerging a Global Eco-Civilization, Hai Phong City, Viet Nam — 14-19 July 2013, will provide you with an opportunity to contribute to a showcase of advances in systemic sustainability initiatives from around the world with hands-on experience in the UNESCO Cat Ba Biosphere Reserve and at Hai Phong City, the first city in the world to be managed using an integral systems approach.
The Conference Committee invites contributions from systems scholars and professionals — whether in the academic world, industry/commerce or professional practice — to engage with one another, to create a space where systems theory/modeling/simulation meets systems practice/living/being, to co-create a living network of institutions and individuals learning together how thrivability frameworks and practices help humanity tackle real world complex problems.
