The Research Group Emergent Systems, Information and Society held a meeting in the framework of emcsr avantgarde 2016.

Hamid Ekbia, Associate Professor and Director of the Center for Research on Mediated Interaction at the University of Indiana in Bloomington, held a keynote on the most recent phase in the co-evolution of computing and capitalism.

About twenty people attended a workshop on Systems-of-Systems, a field of interest to the military sector, systems engineering, or organizational learning. The aim of the workshop was to critically discuss theoretical foundations of the concept and to analyse implications for different fields of application.

After the workshop the members of the group present in Vienna drafted a work plan for the years to come.
