On 5 June, 2014, Rainer E. Zimmermann was invited to give a special talk in the Lunchtime Scientific Series, organised by the HCI Group of the Institute for Design and Assessment of Technology at the Vienna University of Technology.

The talk gave a broad overview of philosophical considerations that are implied by system definitions.
