Welcome to MCS2010

The serial International Workshop on Meta-Synthesis and Complex Systems is to facilitate the exchanges between scholars in the field of systems science and complex problem solving. After successful MCS2001(Beijing), MCS2002 (Shanghai, together with KSS2002), MCS2003 (Guangzhou, together with KSS2003), MCS2004 (Beijing), MCS2005 (Kobe, one workshop of IFSR2005), MCS2006 (Beijing, together with KSS2006) and MCS2007 (Beijing, one workshop of ICCS2007), MCS2008 (Singapore, a special track at IEEE SMC2008), MCS2009 (Chengdu, a workshop at MCDM2009), MCS serial workshops gain so much attention worldwide.

Formally proposed in 1990 by the famous Chinese system scientist Qian Xuesen (1911-2009) towards open complex giant systems, meta-synthesis approach emphasizes to make full use of cutting-edge information technologies and aims to achieve knowledge creation and wisdom emergence along complex problem solving process. Intensive research has been engaged into meta-synthesis approach to complex system modeling with an interdisciplinary view together with more practice in both reality and the designed scenarios. In recent years, computational approaches have been greatly enhanced to explore knowledge-related technologies to mine more hidden patterns, tacit meanings from humans, which thus brings out many new foci on diverse topics, such as knowledge creation and computerized support, knowledge network and knowledge community structure, agent-based modeling about social problems, etc. As new wicked problems, e.g. emergency management and terrorism, bring more troubles to the current world, similar concepts like meta-synthesis have been of discussion and exploration, such as the advanced concept group in Sandia National Laboratories. It is expected that the meta-synthesis system approach will be of more solid foundations and wide applications. MCS workshop aims to facilitate idea generation, knowledge sharing and scientific collaboration among those endeavors.

MCS workshop will be continuously held to provide opportunities for those researchers who are interested in systems sciences, complex problem solving and advanced modeling, meta-synthesis, artificial life, knowledge-oriented technology and integration, decision sciences and supporting technologies, etc. to facilitate interdisciplinary studies under the context of  the 2010 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent System (WI-IAT2010) held in Toronto.

Papers Submission

 

Prospective authors are welcome to use the WI-IAT2010 CyberChair system for on-line paper submission. Paper format guidelines (Word, Pdf, Ps) and the Latex formatting macros (Latex) are available on the WI-IAT2010 Web site. Accepted papers are to be 4 pages in length. A maximum of one additional page can be included, but is subject to a surcharge on the conference registration fee. All steps will strictly follow WI-IAT2010 requirements.  Please select The 10th International Workshop on Meta-Synthesis and Complex Systems (MCS) during your paper submission to MCS2010.

 

Each full-length paper will be under at least 3 anonymous reviewers.  All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance and clarity to MCS2010.
