Welcome to MCS2014
Activated with regular exchanges on complex system modeling mainly between Japanese
and Chinese scholars as well as a major project on meta-synthesis system research
(1999-2003) in China, the international workshop on meta-synthesis and complex
system became an annual event since 2001. After successful MCS2001(Beijing), MCS2002 (Shanghai, together with KSS2002), MCS2003 (Guangzhou, together with KSS2003), MCS2004 (Beijing), MCS2005 (Kobe, one workshop of IFSR2005), MCS2006 (Beijing,
together with KSS2006), MCS2007 (Beijing, one workshop of ICCS2007), MCS2008 (Singapore, a special track at IEEE SMC2008), MCS2009 (Chengdu,
a workshop at MCDM2009), MCS2010 (Toronto,
a workshop at WI-IAT2010), MCS2011(Lanzhou,
a workshop at BI2011), MCS2012 (Macau, a workshop of Active Media Technology 2012), and MCS2013 (Machester, UK, a workshop at IEEE SMC 2013). MCS is growing into a dedicated forum for complex system modeling and methodologies
to provide opportunities for those researchers who are interested in systems sciences,
complex problem solving and advanced modeling, knowledge-oriented technology and
integration, decision sciences and advancing support technologies, etc.
MCS'2014 aims to facilitate distributing new ideas and latest research results on
effective concepts, methodologies and advanced tools to tackle the wicked problems
on social, economic and environmental developments and exploring next-generation
knowledge intensive tools for complex system modeling and human decision making.
This workshop will cover a broad range of research topics in the fields of complex system modeling, systems science and knowledge science. The presentations and papers at MCS2014 are expected to cover but not limited to the following areas:
- Big data & social media based knowledge discovry & data mining, text mining, recommendation system, etc.
- Brain systems engineering
- Complex system analysis and modeling
- Computing methods for uncertainty modeling
- Consensus methods and technologies, e.g. voting model, MCDM, etc.
- Decision support systems
- Dynamic social network modeling and simulation
--Knowledge creation, creativity support, awareness support, etc.
--Knowledge systems engineering and knowledge management
--Meta-synthetic system modeling and advanced environment, e.g. risk crisis & emergency management, socioeconomic system, etc.
- Opinon Dynamics
- Problem structuring methods and system methodologies
More about meta-synthesis:
Originally proposed in 1990 by the famous Chinese system scientist Qian Xuesen (1911-2009) towards open complex giant systems, meta-synthesis approach emphasizes to make full use of cutting-edge information technologies and aims to achieve knowledge creation and wisdom emergence along human-machine collaborative complex problem solving process.
