RSD12-Toronto is a pilot for SDA-Toronto and an opportunity to gauge interest in a collaborative network engaged in building the systemic design community.
Entangling and unravelling are complementary processes. Even the deepest entanglements eventually unravel, and every unravelling is an opportunity for new entanglements to emerge.
The RSD12 contributions include papers, interactive sessions, workshops, and panels.

The distribution of hubs is a unique opportunity to show the climate stripes as a reminder that sustainability is core to systemic design.
Please consider answering this very brief survey and sharing your thoughts about RSD.
Save the date. RSD12 is envisioned as a two-week programme, excluding weekends. The Georgetown proposal is a multi-event symposia concept, connecting systemic design hubs around the world in a sequence of in-person, online, and hybrid sessions. Hub symposia are augmented by a four-hour online program dedicated to full papers and emergent programming.
The Systemic Design Association and Georgetown University are ready to receive Expressions of Interest from partner organizations to host one or multiple days of RSD12 as part of the collaborative hub model envisioned for October 2023. Please submit your EoI before March 1, 2023.
RSD12 organising institution announced—Georgetown University, USA. This year, the RSD12 hub model invites multiple hosts to submit interest in presenting their chosen themes.
I want to take this opportunity to make a special wish for the new year that we continue to connect people with design and build a future of peace and friendship. The future is now, and we are responsible for designing a better world.
This year’s RSD contributions were dedicated to exploring possibilities for systemic design. A call went out to question systemic design’s emerging shape, and the growing, remarkably interdisciplinary systemic design community responded.
After a brief hiatus, it’s time to finalise RSD11 proceedings. As an RSD editor, I feel incredibly grateful to be able to revisit and review this work.
If designers are willing to articulate their mission of creating artifacts that do not already exist, they should find evidence for unused possibilities, not data from yesterday.
“… ecological design also includes the careful meshing of human purposes with the larger patterns and flows of the natural world”

Silvia Barbero, SDA Chair and Co-founder: Every year-end pushes us to evaluate what we have done and define higher and higher goals to reach in the next one.
RSD is off to the shores of Brighton in 2022. The University of Brighton’s School of Architecture, Technology and Engineering is the RSD11 host.
The Systemic Design Association (SDA) has taken a partnership approach to advance systemic design awareness and practice.
From November 2-6, 2021, RSD10 marked a decade of systemic design at TU Delft’s Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering, one of the world’s leading design schools.
Hosted online activities, a collaborative systems map, and social media streams for delegates
Unlike RSD’s peer-review process, the Top Ten for Ten is a listicle that’s based on a simple criterion: the sheer number of RSD contributions. You will likely recognise the top ten names because of their sustained commitment and dedication to establishing systemic design in academe and design practice.

The AMA is a unique online forum opportunity with Peter Jones and Birger Sevaldson, bringing them together as co-presenters once again so you can ask them, well, anything.
The RSD10 program represents 119 new contributions to systemic design, presented as keynote speeches, dialogues, practice case studies, gigamaps, and long and short papers.
TU Delft is the largest and oldest technical universities in the Netherlands. Industrieel Ontwerpen, the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering is one of the world’s leading design schools.

Nine chapters are drawn from authors presenting at RSD4, Banff Canada 2015. The edited volume is in the Springer Systems Science series (ed. K. Kijima) with chapters available to academic libraries online.
RSD7 publications document six inspiring keynote speakers, three plenary sessions, and 76 papers in downloadable formats.
RSD7 featured relaxed “learning-and-doing time”. At the end of each day, three decompressing “Books and Beers” events were hosted in the close venue of Eataly. Five recently published books were introduced to the audience and discussed in a more informal environment.
Carlo Vezzoli, Fabrizio Ceschin, Lilac Osanjo, Mugendi K. M’rithaa, and Richie Moalosi discuss the design approach and tools used by companies and practitioners. The book is of interest to professionals working in design, industry, government, NGO, and researchers.
Pier Paolo Peruccio looks back at an insufficiently investigated chapter in the history of Olivetti, founded more than 110 years ago in Ivrea, Italy.
Edited by Silvia Barbero, this guide looks to systemic design as a key methodology to establish sustainable regional action plans towards a circular economy.
Franco Fassio and Nadia Tecco present forty food sector case studies focused on circularity.
Editors Peter Jones and Kyoichi Kijima present the co-evolving fields of design-led systemics, referred to as systemic design, as distinguished from the engineering and hard science epistemologies of system design or systems engineering.
RSD6 Chair & Editor, Birger Sevaldson: The Flourishing Together theme encompassed the contexts for flourishing in democratic societies and explored the opportunities for systemic design.
RSD5 Chair & Editor, Peter Jones: Proceedings are the result of the dialogue and discursive process within the community of practice, and while it follows peer review within an extended reviewer panel, it differs from the traditional scientific publication process.
RSD4 Co-Chairs & Editors, Alex Ryan and Peter Jones: A range of compelling intellectual engagements, from Don Norman’s provocations to develop a design practice capable of dealing with significant complexity, to Lia Patricio’s resonant case study and model of integration in the Portuguese health records system, to AP-J’s cutting-edge architectural models.
RSD3 Chairs and Editors: Birger Sevaldson and Peter Jones: The emerging renaissance of systems thinking in design responds to the increasing complexity in all challenges faced by designers, strategists, and transdisciplinary innovators.
RSD2 Editors Birger Sevaldson and Peter Jones: What binds systems related theories and practices together with design approaches may be the desire to reintroduce systems approaches with design toward a more effective integrated praxis.
