[xmca] FW: CFP - Science 2.0 and Expansion of Science

The term Science 2.0 has been used with different but related meanings. It
is usually related to Web 2.0-enabled scientific activities, specifically
Web 2.0[1], but it has also been related to the expansion of science by
means of new concepts and theories (Second Order Cybernetics[2], and the
Systems Approach), or new mode of producing knowledge[3].

The purpose of the Organizing Committee of the International Symposium on
Science 2.0 and Expansion of Science (S2ES 2010) is to bring together
researchers and designers from the three perspectives of the proposed New
Science in order 1) to share their reflections regarding each of these three
perspectives, 2) to analyze what is common among them, and 3) to identify
the ways how they complement each other.

Accordingly, the Organizing Committee is planning to include in the
symposium program 1) sessions with formal presentations, and/or 2) informal
conversational sessions, and/or 3) hybrid sessions, which will have formal
presentations first and informal conversations later.

S2ES 2010 (www.sysconfer.org/s2es) will be held in the context of The World
Multi-Conference on Systemics, Cybernetics, and Informatics: WMSCI 2010
(www.sysconfer.org/wmsci) in Orlando, Florida, USA on June 29th-July 2nd,

Papers/Abstracts Submissions and Invited Sessions Proposals: April 16th,
Authors Notifications: May 5th, 2010
Camera-ready, full papers: May 26th, 2010

Submissions for Face-to-Face or for Virtual Participation are both accepted.
Both kinds of submissions will have the same reviewing process and the
accepted papers will be included in the same proceedings.

Pre-Conference and Post-conference Virtual sessions (via electronic forums)
will be held for each session included in the conference program, so that
sessions papers can be read before the conference, and authors presenting at
the same session can interact during one week before and after the
conference. Authors can also participate in peer-to-peer reviewing in
virtual sessions.

All Submitted papers/abstracts will go through three reviewing processes:
(1) double-blind (at least three reviewers), (2) non-blind, and (3)
participative peer reviews. These three kinds of review will support the
selection process of those papers/abstracts that will be accepted for their
presentation at the conference, as well as those to be selected for their
publication in JSCI Journal.

Authors of accepted papers who registered in the conference can have access
to the evaluations and possible feedback provided by the reviewers who
recommended the acceptance of their papers/abstracts, so they can
accordingly improve the final version of their papers. Non-registered
authors will not have access to the reviews of their respective submissions.

Registration fees of an effective invited session organizer will be waived
according to the policy described in the web page  (click on 'Invited
Session', then on 'Benefits for the Organizers of Invited Sessions'), where
you can get information about the ten benefits for an invited session
organizer. For Invited Sessions Proposals, please visit the conference web
site, or directly to www.sysconfer.org/s2es/organizer.asp

Authors of the best 10%-20% of the papers presented at the conference
(included those virtually presented) will be invited to adapt their papers
for their publication in the Journal of Systemics, Cybernetics and

Best regards,

Conference Organizing Committee
