2019 ISSS Conference: Nature's Enduring Patterns: A Path to Systems Literacy

Fri, 2019/06/28 - Tue, 2019/07/02
Corvallis, OR

Science searches for answers to the mysteries that confront us as living beings. For over 60 years, the work of ISSS in the ‘general systems’ field has been to encourage the development of theoretical systems which are applicable to more than one of the traditional departments of knowledge. 

Recognizing our embeddedness in nature provides ways to investigate the common patterns or ‘isomorphies’ of concepts, laws, and models in various fields, and to help in useful transfers from one field to another. 

Understanding and appreciating these patterns is key to the development of systems-literate people able to make robust decisions and act in complex situations, considering relationships and effects of systems of all kinds and at all levels. 

Participants at ISSS 2019 will 1) Share scientific results and engage in conversations across disciplines regarding Natures Enduring Patterns; and 2) Explore how to educate for, and what it means to create, a systems-literate society.
