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), MCS2013 (Machester, UK, a workshop at IEEE SMC 2013), and MCS2014 (Beijing). 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.
With the IEEE SMC 2015 theme on “Big Data Analytics for Human-Centric Systems”, MCS’2015 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.
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.
Intensive research has been engaged into meta-synthesis approach to complex system modeling with an interdisciplinary view together with more practice in both reality and the designed scenarios. In recent years, computational approaches have been greatly enhanced to explore knowledge-related technologies to mine more hidden patterns, tacit meanings from humans, which thus brings out many new foci on diverse topics. As new wicked problems, e.g. emergency management and terrorism, bring more troubles to the current world, similar systems thinkings like meta-synthesis have been of further exploration, such as the advanced concept group in Sandia National Laboratories. It is expected that the meta-synthesis system approach will be of more solid foundations and wide applications. MCS workshop aims to facilitate idea generation, knowledge sharing and scientific collaboration among those endeavors.
