Framing Session: Two Keynote Lectures

The framing session sets the stage for the conference. It reflects on the current revival of systems thinking; highlights the major new challenges for systems analysis that require methodological advances; showcases a recent application of systems analysis that has been enabled by methodological advances; and discusses the plurality of contemporary systems-analysis approaches among disciplines and along the traditional continuum between reductionism and holism.
