We are coming up to the beginning of Relating Systems Thinking and Design (RSD11): Possibilities and Practices of Systemic Design hosted online and in person at the University of Brighton.
The overall programme has over 100 papers, over 30 workshops, and a number of other special interactive sessions and threads.
Overall, the theme of the event is to question the emerging shape of systemic design as it continues to develop.
The conference has been designed to be an even balance between online and in-person experiences, with almost all sessions available in both modes.
They have kept online registration fees in particular as low as possible (£85/£40), and there is still time to register. As well as the online ticket there are still a small number of in person tickets available (£330/£230) – please register as soon as possible to secure one of these.
Navigate to this link to register and for details of the programme, and follow the links at the top of the page: https://rsdsymposium.org/ this is also where you can request joining codes for the free sessions – see below.
They have kept this cost to a minimum because they recognise that attending online is often to attend only in part because of time zones and other commitments, and they want to price this so it is good value even if you are only able to attend particular sessions (and of course you can attend everything!). They have also made selected sessions available for free, without registering (see below).
There are several parts of the programme –
