4th Annual Systems Modelling Conference 2020, UNSW Canberra
Systems thinking and modelling is the science of integration, where every system is conceptualised as a set of inter-related components. Systems thinking and systems modelling provides a problem-solving approach that helps us develop the capacity to understand and manage complexity in a systemic way and how to deal with it in multi-stakeholder situations. It enables researchers to answer several questions, such as how an assumedly pure-technical/infrastructural system co-evolves with the society and economy, how a system can result in unexpected behaviours in long-term, and how we should be prepared to deal with unexpected surprises and shocks.
The Capability Systems Centre runs one-day conference on the use of whole-systems approach to design and manage complex problem in socio-technical and socio-ecological systems. The daylong conference on September 10th will feature showcases on the use of systems thinking and systems modelling in a wide range of areas.
The event provides a platform for researchers and practitioners to communicate about scientific and practical aspects of real-world problems, receive feedback, and share learning lessons.
It also provides a unique networking opportunity among people from academia, industry and government for initiating future collaborations.
We invite you to join us!
