The Business Systems Laboratory International Symposia aim to address the global economic and social challenges of our times by systemic perspective; shedding the light on the several interactions between natural social and economic systems. The criticalities and the opportunities of our times are faced according to the cutting edge research and practice in social science.
This multidisciplinary perspective includes a wide range of fields such as: management, psychology, economics, engineering and sociology.
The Symposium is thought to create a friendly atmosphere among senior scholars, PhD students, researchers and business practitioners.
The Symposium 2019 will consider how, today, globalization is blurring the borders and the boundaries of any kind (eg. countries, markets, societies, cultures, organizations, …).
Like systems, borders are not “things out there” which exist independently by the perception of the observer. We make borders as we make systems in the attempt to simplify the interconnected complexity of reality.
Today borders still exists as the demarcation between two ideal spaces defined by the observers according to political, social, cultural and economic dimensions. Therefore we live in a world made of “borders without borders” and unlike in the past, we are now widely aware of this.
With this premise the Symposium 2019 focuses on the epistemological, theoretical, methodological, technical and practical contributions that can represent advancements in the theory and practice for sustainable well-being in the global era in and by different perspectives.
While focusing on the Systemic methodology the Symposium is also open to all the scientific approaches in order to foster constructive debates and confrontations to create new paths of research and practice.
The language of the B.S.Lab Symposia is English.
The Symposium 2019 will be structured in discussion panels and poster sessions.
The Symposium will start on Monday January 21 at 13,00 pm and end on Wednesday January 23 at 18,00 pm.
