Doctoral Colloquium


Monday, November 14, 2016

8:30 -  Welcome breakfast

9:00 - Conference welcome
Stephan Lukosch, Aleksandra Sarcevic

9:15 – Keynote Symposium
The opening Keynote of GROUP 2016 is a Symposium of people who work on systems. We chose the word "symposium" because we envision diverse perspectives, short position statements and discussion, but very little of the debate or competition of a panel. The aim is to reflect the diversity and the breadth of perspectives in the GROUP community. We will think together about the current state of the art and science in systems work, and the future of systems work.

Of course, there is no single endeavor called "systems," and there is no single genre for a "systems paper." (The same kind of statement can be made about quantitative work, qualitative work, theory work…) We hope that the Symposium will help all of us – "systems people" and others – to consider the different contributions that systems work has made to GROUP, and the possible future contributions. Moreover, we may find new ways in which our various research streams can interact, and inform one another.

The participants of the Symposium will present their position statement on five topics: Why do we build systems? What is the starting point for the systems work? What is the ending point? What does the reader get from a systems paper?
