A Program for Fostering Inter-Disciplinary Presentations
The International Institute of Informatics and Systemics is planning a program to foster and provide financial support (partially at least) to Inter-Disciplinary Communication.
In the first phase of this program, the IIIS will provide to some participants of the conferences it organizes the option of making an additional presentation at the conference for inter-disciplinary communication, with no additional cost. This presentation should be related to the content of the intra-disciplinary communication that they are scheduled to present, but towards non-disciplinary communication with non-disciplinary and non-technical terms, so conference participants from other disciplines can understand it. The multi-disciplinary forum of these conferences would be supporting the potential inter-disciplinary communication, which is one of the main purposes of the IIIS .
Those conference participants who take the above mentioned option would also have the additional option to send an invited paper, written for inter-disciplinary communication and associated to the verbal presentation that was made at the conference, also for inter-disciplinary communication. These invited papers would be included, as such, in the post-conference volume of the proceedings and should be sent no later than three weeks after the last day of the conference.
Periodically, a special publication will be made with the invited papers written for inter-disciplinary communication. It will provide links to the respective papers that were written for intra-disciplinary communication. This is one of the ways by which the IIIS would relate intra- and inter-disciplinary communications , which might generate cybernetic loops and potential synergies for the writer and the readers. These special publications of invited papers for inter-disciplinary communications will have special promotion via academic/professional social media as for example Academia.edu (a community of about 30.000.000 academics and researchers), LinkedIn, etc. Readers of any of these invited papers will also have a link to the peer-reviewed paper used for intra-disciplinary communication. This might certainly increase the readership of the paper and, hence, its potential impact.
Those participants whose regular (peer reviewed) presentations were already made in an inter-disciplinary field and oriented to inter-disciplinary communication have the option of working on an invited paper regarding the topic of inter-disciplinary research, education and/or communication (IDREC). Such invited papers might be oriented towards any of the following:
1. Why IDREC is important and necessary for the advancement of Science, real life problems solution, and/or technological innovations,
2. What is or might be IDREC: description of the related concepts supporting any of these three activities as well as the potential relationships and potential cybernetic loops among them and/or
3. How IDREC might be achieved. This issue might be addressed conceptually, via practice-based research and/or reflections, or presenting case studies which level of effectiveness has the potential of generating more similar practices and/or potentially more case studies on this issue._______________
