Summer 2022 Systems Conferences Debriefings
Let's meet in person for casual reflections on systems conferences that have happened in the early summer!
Allenna Leonard will lead reflections on the 14th Metaphorum Conference (2022) at Leuven, Belgium, 10-12 June.
David Ing will lead reflections on the 66th Annual Meeting of the International Society for the Systems Sciences, held online, 7-11 July.
Diligent attendees may listen in on a few of the recorded presentations below.
This meeting will occur outdoors. (Rescheduling may be sent to registrants, in the event of rain). For the no-host dinner that follow, we are looking into restaurants with outdoor patio seating.
Grange Park, Beverley Street south of Dundas Street.
Bring a folding chair, or a blanket to sit on the grass!
There are benches on the west side of the park, by Beverley Street. We prefer the shade under the trees, west of Large Two Forms sculpture by Henry Moore.
