2nd Annual IEEE Systems Modelling Conference 2018

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.

The Capability Systems Centre in partnership with IEEE runs a 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 October 4th will feature showcases on the use of systems thinking and systems modelling in a wide range of areas.

We invite you to join us!

The theme of the conference is on Leveraging the power of multi-methods in model-based decision analysis and problem solving. Systems modelling is a crucial approach for decision-making associated with real-world systems. The-state-of-the-art in systems modelling does not rely one dominant modelling technique, one group of analytical methods, one ultimate model, or one set of input data or parameters for an effective decision analysis and problem solving. Consequently, decision makers have available a wide range of modelling and analytical approaches that have differing strengths and limitations and can address some aspects of decision problems better than others.
