Description


Systemic Design for Social Complexity

Join us in Toronto on October 13-15, 2016 for the fifth Relating Systems Thinking and Design Symposium (RSD) hosted at OCAD University and MaRS Discovery District to accelerate the convergence of design, social and technology worlds in modes of systemic design for co-creating humanized services, societies and (eco)systems.

The theme of Systemic Design for Social Complexity represents our continuing development of advanced design for intelligent progress toward contemporary and anticipatory future societal concerns. RSD has aimed for several years to inform human-centred design with system-oriented methodologies sufficient to design interventions and social and policy responses understood within complex social and sociotechnical systems. We invite your participation in the conversations, to bring your stories, best cases, methods, hopes, trials and errors to Toronto for three days of engagement, learning and shared insight.

The RSD5 program is underway and the 2016 symposium promises astonishing keynotes, of-the-moment research, hands-on workshops, engaged thematic panels and a curated Gigamap/poster gallery.

Registration is now open for an event covering three days and two evenings (your Saturday in Toronto is at your leisure). Early-bird pricing is available until September 23.  For confirmed speakers and other details please visit http://www.rsd5.org/.

To keep up with RSD news, please join us on the SDRN LinkedIn site.
