This is the eighth in a series of conferences with two major aims: first, to investigate those properties or characteristics that appear to be common to the very different complex systems now under study; and second, to encourage cross fertilization among the many disciplines involved.

The themes are emergence, complexity and information, dynamics and self organization, networks, and methodology.

Author and organizational change practitioner Peggy Holman will facilitate a session on Engaging Emergence: Working with Changing Social Systems in Complex, Volatile Times. This interactive session will employ conversations to explore patterns, practices, and principles for working with emergence. It is designed for people who want to understand change in organizations, communities, or other social systems such as health care or education. In her own words, the goal is to "take the emergency out of emergence."
