What is Sociocybernetics
The History of RC51
      After exchanging ideas with The Cybernetics Society (D.J. Stewart and Martin Smith), we consider useful to create this page. It gives links and information about societies, groups, scholars, journals, etc., which themselves have links to RC51 on Sociocybernetics, either on their websites, or taking some other form.

      More links can be found in the Links Library, which is opened to any suggestion or new information.
