Theoria cum praxi et bonum commune: a colloquium of the Leibniz-Sozietät


The Leibniz-Sozietät der Wissenschaften zu Berlin e.V. (LS) invites the group “Emergent Systems, Information and Society” to present itself at a one-day colloquium of their two classes (Natur- und Technikwissenschaften; Sozial- und Geisteswissenschaften). That group was founded at the Summit 2015 as joint endeavour of the Arbeitskreis of the LS, the Research Group of the BCSSS and the Special Interest Group (SIG) of ISIS. The ISIS board confirmed only recently the establishment of that SIG. Its Chair is Wolfgang Hofkirchner, Co-Chair Hans-Jörg Kreowski, Secretary Rainer E. Zimmermann. Interested faculty is welcome to join the group.

The LS colloquium will be held in German on 10 December 2015 in Berlin, Rathaus Tiergarten. The entrance is free. See the programme here and the abstracts and cvs of the speakers here. The colloquium gets support from the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung according to the guidelines of the German Federal Agency for Civic Education.

The colloquium will comprise contributions that comply with the dictum of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in the following way: theory, that is, systems theory, with praxis, that is,informatics, and the common good, that is, a global sustainable information society.
