The aim and topic of the conference is to focus on the epistemological theoretical, methodological, technical and practical contributions of the systemic approach throughout each disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspective rooted in the systemic approach (sociology, management, engineering, biology, economics, mathematics, etc.) to shape a scientific and globally-focused policy agenda to face the energy challenges of our times.

The official language of the conference is English ,and the conference structure is articulated into four panels each  lasting 3 hours divided among the panel Chairperson and the speakers (maximum 10 per panel, about 20 minutes per presentation so that the panel time allows both the chairperson comments and a “round-table debate” among the speakers and with the public).  All the speakers of the WCSA conference have to be WCSA members. It will be possible to join WCSA as a member directly at the membership desk outside the conference room.

The conference will be structured into four panels:

2-Sept. 26: 2 p.m. - 6 p.m., Panel II - A Systemic Toolkit in the Knowledge Based World Society to Face the Energy Challenges
