The issues motivating the conference and what we are hoping to achieve are explained in the 3.5 minute video in the right hand column (video on the conference aims and background).

In brief, this is a conference about methodology for enhancing research on complex real world problems. Specifically we are interested in ways of bringing together knowledge from various disciplines and practice areas, for dealing with unknowns, and for using research to improve policy and practice.

This is a conference for you if your research interests include:

  • using models and scenarios as ways to bring together various kinds of knowledge
  • developing new dialogue methods
  • finding ways to help research teams collaborate more effectively
  • supporting  policy and practice change
  • understanding how to deal with a problem as a system
  • avoiding unpleasant surprises and unintended consequences
  • and more…

Showcase your work:
Present your past achievements and current work using digital posters. You can submit digital posters now and digital posters are available for viewing as soon as accepted.
