Chairmain Speaks at SWIIS2012 Conference in Waterford, Ireland
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA & WATERFORD, IRELAND- Dr. David Martin presented this week at the SWIIS 2012, an international conference on sustainability. He discussed the cost of human nature and the fallacy of free.
The SWIIS2012 is a major international conference supported by IFAC on International Stability and Systems Engineering to be staged in WIT on 11 to 13th of June 2012. This conference is important because we have been witnessed to dramatic changes in international stability. The world has never seemed so unstable and uncertain and Ireland has been significantly impacted by these global system uncertainties. The application of global systems of information, finance, energy and other resources has both negative and positive consequences. We can think of the global uncertainty of financial systems, threats of terrorism through advanced systems intrusions, environmental instability such as recently witnessed in Japan which threatened catastrophic nuclear power-systems failure. What can systems engineering and information technology contribute to solving these problems? International Stability and Systems Engineering (SWIIS) 2012 is a major international event which brings together scientists and professionals from all over the world to address this question.
