Plenary VIII: Prospects for Scientific Systemic Synthesis

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Description: Recent times have seen the emergence of new theoretical insights that may help to establish the frameworks, theories and methodologies we need to understand, design, build, explain, communicate about, utilize or operate, maintain, and evolve resilient and sustainable socio-ecological systems.  In this panel we bring together experts to present on such emerging developments in the areas of engineering, science, research, practice and philosophy, and to reflect on how these different stands can contribute to the formation of a new systemic synthesis that will make the ‘whole systems perspective’ scientific and practical. The panel presentations will be delivered in the last plenary before lunch, and be followed by an open discussion between the panellists and audience in a break-out session immediately after lunch.    

Chair: *David Rousseau

Panelists:


  • Bill Shindel - The S* minimal general systems meta-model, and its prospects as a general modelling foundation for Systems Engineering.

  • Len Troncale - Systems Processes Theory (SPT) , and its prospects as a general theoretical core for a science of systems and sustainability.

  • John Kineman - The PAR/Holon Relational Framework, and its prospects as a general methodology for Systems Research

  • Jennifer Wilby - Systemic methodologies and the prospects for enhancing them on the basis of emerging general systems theories and models.

  • David Rousseau - Systems Philosophy and the prospects for employing scientific general systems principles as the foundation of a systems worldview.
