Help us to close the information gap!
You, dear reader, are probably a competent specialist hoping to acquire an overview of the systems field. in our Newsletter we intend to inform you about exciting concepts and developments in the world of systems and about the role our members play in the global intellectual community. The “Newsletter” is not an academic journal, its content is of more general interests – but we don’t intend to reduce complex developments to simplistic and meaningless information fragments.
Our goal is to present the following items:
- Ongoing or proposed or recently completed studies
- Trends and tendencies in various areas of the systems field
- New ideas from conferences or journals
- Major book publications and new periodicals
- Aims and activities of our member societies
- Upcoming conferences and seminars
We feel that we have the right combination of experience and talents for undertaking this task. Gerhard Chroust is a professor of computer science, and an expert in desktop publishing. Stephen Sokoloff is a university lecturer in biology, and environmentalist, a multilingual journalist and an English native speaker.
But we won’t be able to do it all alone – we’ll need your research and project ideas, congress reports and your news articles – and it will be our policy to pay for longer items that we publish. The quality of the Newsletter ultimately hinges on your commitment, your interests, your involvement!
