You are invited to submit an abstract to the sixth RSD symposium on the theme of the ongoing renaissance of systems thinking in the design field. Since 2012 the Systemic Design Research Network has initiated and hosted the RSD symposia within which a new dialogue and emerging practices of Systemic Design have developed. We believe that design, architecture and urban planning/design now demand enhanced capabilities to cope with the hypercomplex problems faced by modern, developed and developing societies. We find systemic design can play a role within and across many fields and can do much better in navigating our relationship to the natural environment and common governance. In these days of sociopolitical unrest, with the increasing uncertainty of sustaining historical institutions, we urge the design community to step up to use its competence for better and deeper impact.

Systems thinking has long been a part of design, and has also had impact on architecture and urban design, but it has been the interest of the specialists and scholars. The new wave of Systemic Design is concerned with creating new synergetic relations between systems thinking and design. We think this coupling is potentially very powerful as an approach to improve many of the problems we are facing today.

This symposium invites thoughtful participants from all disciplines, from across societies and cultures to contribute. We call for researchers and serious practitioners from design disciplines, systems and cybernetics, social sciences, ecological and economic sciences, architecture and urban design, other fields and inter- and transdisciplinary teams. From praxis we invite civic leaders, entrepreneurs and business leaders, policymakers and democracy advocates, and especially practicing designers from all fields to participate.

Call for Abstracts Deadline May 1st, unrestricted format, extended abstract between 500 to 1000 words. Forms of presentation include the oral presentation of a research paper, a poster or GIGAmap, a curated panel session, and other proposals will be considered.
