Purdue Systems Collaboratory to host systems science luncheon

The Purdue Systems Collaboratory will host a luncheon on Oct. 25 for faculty and staff who are interested in the field of systems science.

The event will focus on setting up a network of systems researchers and educators, as well as creating a platform that facilitates interaction among colleagues involved or interested in complex systems, integration, systems tools, convergence, human systems, natural systems, economic systems, political systems and more.

The forum will be open to different ideas as well as exploring the National Science Foundation’s Research Coordination Networks. A summary of PSC’s recent activities and achievements will also be presented, and lunch will be provided to those who attend.

PSC was established to disrupt the traditional, reductionist way of thinking, and to create a new paradigm that facilitates broad, cross-discipline investigation at the edges of systems interactions, the spaces between diverse and assumed unrelated systems and the after-effects of major system disruptions, says Afra Boshra, PSC research and education director. PSC contributes foundational systems-thinking principles to education, research and practice through value-added collaborative models. 

The luncheon will take place at 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. in Room 102 of Purdue’s Grissom Hall. RSVP by emailing Afra at afra@purdue.edu and make any dietary requirements known.
