Emerging SystemsJuly 9-14, 2006 @ Sonoma State University. The 50th anniversary conference of the International Society for the Systems Sciences offers an opportunity to celebrate and reinvigorate a half-century of interdisciplinary collaboration and synthesis.

• Complex Systems and the Roots of Systems Thinking
What can the sciences of complexity teach us about social justice and sustainability?

• Self-Organization and Living Systems
What is the nature of the relationship between information and consciousness?

• Ecological Systems and Sustainability
How do we manage information in a way that fosters effective decision-making processes?

• Social Systems Design and Practice
How do we nurture organizational structures that serve human needs while also protecting our resources for future generations?
The International Society for the Systems Sciences (ISSS) is unique among systems-oriented institutions in the breadth of its scope, bringing together scholars and practitioners from academic, business, government, and non-profit communities to explore what Gregory Bateson has called the "pattern that connects."

These past fifty years have produced a tremendous richness and breadth of research into the nature of complexity, from the scientific study of complex systems to interactive approaches in management and community development. Building on this impressive heritage, the 50th annual meeting of the ISSS aims to convene leading thinkers and practitioners from across the spectrum of systems-related fields in order to nurture an ongoing synthesis of theory and practice, to cultivate a more integrated understanding of the challenges confronting humanity, and to envision possible paths toward solutions.

The theme for this anniversary conference, “Complexity, Democracy, and Sustainability,” is an attempt to capture some key dimensions in the broadly defined field of systems research. Following an opening keynote from Fritjof Capra on Sunday evening, July 9.

Both the American Society for Cybernetics (ASC), the Ackoff Center for Advancement of Systems Approaches (ACASA) and the International Conference on Systems Thinking in Management (ICSTM2006) will be holding annual meetings in partnership with the Sonoma conference; and representatives from other related organizations will be participating in the program, including the System Dynamics Group, the Santa Fe Institute, the New England Complex Systems Institute, the Institute for Intercultural Studies, the General Evolution Research Group, and the Center for Organizational Dynamics (University of Pennsylvania), among others.
