RC51 SYMPOSION ON SOCIOCYBERNETICS
The 6th Congress of the European Systems Science Union will house a symposion on sociocybernetics, organized by the Research Committee 51 (RC51) of the International Sociological Association (ISA) (President: Bernd R. Hornung).
Social Complexities from the Individual to Cyberspace
This symposium intends to demonstrate the usefulness of sociocybernetics for analyzing the complex social world with its dynamics and problems on and across different levels, from the individual social actor to the global world and cyberspace. Of special interest will be how both science, as observer, and the social actors and systems being observed try to cope with complexity and manage or govern such systems. Particularly welcome are papers with an interdisciplinary orientation. However, papers have to fall clearly into the scope of sociocybernetics, i.e. systems science applied in the social sciences, in particular sociology. This includes the different systems approaches, first and second order cybernetics, and autopoietic theory, if applied to issues of the social sciences. Such issues may belong to any of the different areas of science, i.e. theory, epistemology, methodology, ethics and values, empirical and applied research.
