Dear Systems Science Working Group contributors and friends,

 

I am reaching out to begin planning the IW2021 sessions, as members of the SSWG distribution list, to request for presentations that contribute to the Systems Science working group purpose and objectives:

 

  • Our Purpose:
    • Promote the advancement and understanding of Systems Science and its application of Systems Theories to SE.
  • Our Objectives:
    • Encourage advancement of Systems Science principles and concepts as they apply to Systems Engineering.
    • Promote awareness of Systems Science as a foundation for SE.
    • Highlight linkages between Systems Science theories and empirical practices of Systems Engineering.

 

The proposed sessions should consider the following requirements:

  • Provide updates and/or advances in your research topics applicable to systems engineering
  • Present a new topic of interest to the systems engineering community
  • Consider a plan to disseminate the work presented at IW2021 (e.g. via video tutorial, white paper, blog, INCOSE INSIGHT Magazine, etc.) if applicable

 

Please consider the following items when preparing your proposals:

·       Format proposals in short abstract form (no more than 250 words)

·       Sessions should not exceed 2 hours

·       Specify preferred times and time zone (or zones in case you are interested in reaching a larger audience). While IW2021 will use as a base UTC+1 time zone, we have flexibility to schedule around the clock sessions to maximize reach.

 

 

Please send your proposals back to us, by replying to this email, by January 4th.

 

Javier, James, Swami, and Anh.

Chair and co-chairs, Systems Science Working Group

Javier, Swami, and Anh:

Concerning INCOSE IW virtual, I was not going to attend at all this year. But now there is the new position of ISSS-INCOSE Ambassadorship that has been raised for me to attend IW. Additionally, Peter Tuddenham started two projects with me recently that are very relevant to projects I once started, way back in the James Martin/Duane Hybertson period in 2010 on developing my SP3T for a foundation in systems engineering for SE education (as reflected in my course offered again beginning January 18, at my university, SE 5100, and in the past as IME 510 and CSA 300). These projects concern about a decade of posters by students attempting to apply SP3T to Sustainability and SE companies or tasks and my new Pamphlet Series (numbering 85) as intro and documentation of SP3T.

In terms of your request, please see the two abstracts attached. They will be slightly modified by reporting time. Each would require about less than one hour of your schedule. Important to include as PST time zone compatible. I usually provide hard copy hand outs at such a time (which are really useful for the participants), but do not know how to do that in a virtual meeting?

Otherwise, I have not registered for INCOSE-IW’21 virtual meeting at all. Nor has anyone else? What else do we need to do?

Luke, Richard, Peter, and Janet: This will also be a stimulus to get this done by the end of January. Peter, I have identified some concerns I will send to you via separate email.

Len

Hello Javier, James, Swami, and Ahn, 

Below and attached is a proposed paper and presentation for discussion. I thought it might be helpful to put together some data on the state of systems science now, starting with Wikipedia.  In the process of researching my book, I’m familiar with and caught up with the work at SFI and NECSI— the sources of complexity and complexity science, the journals Nature and Science, and the newest textbooks and most active groups. Adding the SSWG projects seems to be a logical step.

I’m on the list for the Systems of Systems Working Group and I see that they’re meeting with the Complex Systems Working Group on the “SoS Complexity Project” . The Natural Systems Working Group is meeting with the Complex Systems Working Group to work on emergence and the Social Science working group to work on resistance to change. 

It’s important to define exactly what different groups mean when they describe aspects of systems and what is systems science.  This project may help put that work into perspective. 


FYI, I’m still working on my book — The working title is now Systems Science: An Atlas. I gave a presentation at an ISSS Saturday Session in November and we discussed it for 2 hours. It was a great help and I made a few changes as a result.  I’m focusing on 14 systems processes. For example, 
Networks:  
  • definitions, 
  • an atlas definition, 
  • also called, 
  • examples in the various disciplines, 
  • network as structure
  • network as process/relationship to other systems processes
  • learn more about networks 
Each systems process can be modeled in NetLogo, which is fun. It took a couple of years of research and fooling around—with a pause when the world changed and all felt irrelevant and dated -- to get to this outline, which seems obvious now!  It’s a great deal of work but do-able and I’m probably half-way through it now. 

Thanks for all that you’re doing and looking forward to catching up!

Thanks, Jargal. I will keep you posted. 
I’m also following your Gund Investment website. You are doing exciting work in Mongolia!

Dear Lynn,
Thank you for your reply.  For your information, my team is collaborating with the INCOSE Smart city initiative group on developing a reference model of Smart city and we will be presenting at IW 2021. It could be an interesting opportunity for you guys to learn more about social system engineering tools that we developed and its potential application in various fields. If you have time and interest please join us at Smart city initiative group sessions late January. 
Best regards,
Jargal

Hello all, 

I was at a meeting of the Complex Systems Working Group last week and volunteered to help put together a resource/book list. Four others signed up. 
I said that I wanted to ask the SSWG to partner in this effort. 

Does the SSWG want to do this? Anyone want to help out?  By zoom the group can figure out what to include/how to list it/etc.  I’ll start a google spreadsheet and we can all fill in our recommendations.

Lynn
