emcsr avantgarde 2016

FutureVision?! Which life do we want?
Vienna, 30 March – 1 April, 2016

The upcoming European Meetings on Cybernetics and Systems Research will be held in Vienna from March 30 to April 1, 2016. It will be the first pop up conference meeting in the field of Systems Science and Systems Design, called emcsr avantgarde. The name reflects the vision and the core of the programme. We are looking forward to setting the stage for the contemporary avantgarde of Systems Science and Practice, connecting the achievements of the past with inspiring potentials for the future.

Get ready to engage with a vibrant community of researchers and innovators.

What can you expect?
We are rebooting the system with a brand new format. An international team will organize a new kind of scientific pop up event. It will design the contributions selection, the location, the experience, and the engaging interactions at the meetings to resample the gig in only three months. And this is the adventure of a pop up event: It is fast and it is the unexpected and unthinkable emerging into the current and future existence.

What are we looking for?
We want you. If you are an avant-gardist, conscious innovator, provocative thought leader,
researcher, engineer, geek, philosopher, designer, artist, activist, daring futurist, visionary …
If you are looking for and creating the next impactful advances in technology, social practice
or natural science, we would love to feature you, to connect you, to promote you.

In 2016 we call for contributions addressing: Future Vision!? Which life do we want?

What do you see? And what are we able to co-create, from our philosophical and social concepts, perceptions and practices to the developments in urban living, rural developments, economic alternatives, supply networks, energy, water, traffic and public transport, information technologies and telecommunications, health care, education, democracy, participation, governmental and governance systems for future oriented life concepts and thrivable ecologies?

Stay tuned!
More information will be available in real time.
