A short description of the contents and objectives of each session is available on the website.

Moreover, several pre-congress tutorials will possibly be organized. Please regularly consult our website


CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION:

For presenting a paper, membership both of RC 51 and of the ISA is mandatory. Both memberships can be obtained through the website of the ISA. The membership form for RC 51 is also available at our website: http://www.unizar.es/sociocybernetics/group/newmember.html.


ABSTRACTS AND THE REVIEW PROCESS:

Abstracts for papers have to be 500 to 1000 word detailed abstracts for the review process and the definite assignment to a particular session. At a later point in time 250 word regular abstracts are needed for publication on the Internet by the ISA. All abstracts should be sent to the RC 51 World Congress Programme Coordinator. On the basis of the abstracts the papers will be assigned either to the session requested by the author or to an appropriate session selected by the Programme Coordinator in consultation with the respective session organizer. In either case the session organizer will make a preliminary decision on acceptance of the paper for the particular session. Abstracts should preferably deal with one of the session subjects mentioned above, although papers dealing with other issues of sociocybernetics can also be accepted.
