Call for Symposia 2014 (closed)
39 suggestions for Symposia were received. Together with the proposers we designed the programme. There are Symposia that launched a call for papers (see below). Other proposals are Demonstrations (look at the EMCSR programme site).
Calls for Papers 2014 (closed)
Usually, you will be prompted to submit a 3-pages extended abstract. The closing date is 28 February 2014. You will be notified of acceptance or rejection before 14 March 2014.
The overall theme of the EMCSR 2014 is broken down into 3 subthemes:
I. Sustainability and Development
II. Emergence and Design
III. Complexity and Strategy
The overall focus of the EMCSR 2014 is broken down into 3 subfoci:
A. Applications (systems praxis)
B. Bridges (linking systems praxis to systems thinking by feedback and feed forward)
C. Concepts (systems thinking: theoretical and methodological foundations of systems praxis)
Each Symposium can thus be identified by its location in the matrix built by themes and foci:
Symposium [ROMAN NUMERALS INDICATING THE THEME].[CAPITAL LETTER INDICATING THE FOCUS].[RUNNING NUMBER WITHIN MATRIX BOX]
EXAMPLE: “Symposium I.A.1” signifies the first symposium that deals with applications in sustainability and development.
The Calls for Papers are listed according to the identifier.
Positioning in the programme
The final incorporation of symposia in the programme is dependent on the number of accepted abstracts and is subject to further adaptations.
