Greetings ISSS Members
 
I am so excited to alert you to the new 'season' of the Sat/Wed mini-symposia. We are launching the 2021-22 year with a series of mini-symposia aimed at broadening and deepening our shared understanding of what is possible in the world of systems thinking and doing. These will be held on-line starting September 4th with a talk by Charles Hall, a graduate student of our beloved 1991 president, Howard T. Odum regarding an update of the 50th anniversary of the Limits to Growth model and the role of energy in the development of our technological civilization.

The Springer Handbook of Systems Sciences will be ready in early 2021
Editors: Gary Metcalf, Professor Emeritus Kyoichi Kijima and Professor Hirsohi Deguchi
Gary says "Let me simply say that organizing the writing of 50 chapters into a book of over 1000 pages has been challenging. It has taken much longer than I expected, but we are now in the final phases". Well done Gary Jim and Hiroshi.
