The 2nd International Conference on Complexity, Cybernetics, and Informing Science and Engineering
Complexity, Cybernetics, and Informing Science/Engineering are increasingly being related on the conceptual, methodological, and practical dimensions. T. Grandon Gill’s book (Informing Business: Research and Education on a Rugged Landscape) shows the strong and important relationships between Complexity and Informing Science (specifically academic informing), and the potentiality of these relationships in supporting the integration of academic activities: Research, Education, and Consulting or real Life Problem Solving. On the other hand, the concepts and tools of Cybernetics (Communication and Control) are providing an increasingly effective support for more adequate integrative processes in the context of Informing Science and Engineering, as well as in the context of relating academic activities, more effective and synergistically, among themselves and with professional practice and Society at large.
The purpose of the International Conference on Complexity, Cybernetics, and Informing Science and Engineering (CCISE 2014) is to bring together scholars and professionals from the three fields: Complexity, Cybernetics, and Informing Science/Engineering (including scholars/professionals in their supporting tools and technologies) in order to promote and foster inter-disciplinary communication and interactions among them; oriented to foster the formation of the intellectual humus required for inter-disciplinary synergies, inter-domain cross-fertilization, and the production of creative analogies. Consequently, formal disciplinary oriented breakout sessions will be complemented with interdisciplinary presentations and informal conversational sessions.
