-• the metaphysics of systems: ​ the conceptual scope, meanings of terms, and onto-epistemic foundations of systems thinking, theorising and practices; ​ 
-• systems cosmology: ​ the kinds of philosophies (worldviews) that result from applying systems perspectives,​ including views on the kinds of systems that exist in a concrete way, the systemic organisation of the concrete world, the evolution of kinds of systems, the capacities of kinds of systems, and the possibilities that exist for kinds of systems; 
-• applied systems philosophy: ​ systemic approaches to developing transdisciplinary tools, and to addressing the ‘Big Questions’,​ e.g. the nature of values, the nature of knowledge, the nature of the dialectic between the physical and social sciences. ​       
  
-For 2014 we are additionally inviting contributions that discuss ​the philosophical views of the ‘founders’ ​of the Systems Movement. ​ These papers should not only discuss such views but also the relevance and value of those views for current and/or future ​systemic ​thinking ​and practice.  ​+the systems lexicon: the conceptual scope of terms needed to describe and explain ​the nature, behaviour and potentials ​of systems; 
 +systems worldviews: ​the kinds of philosophies (worldviews) that result from applying systems perspectives,​ including ​views on the kinds of systems that does or could exist in a concrete way, the kinds of knowledge we can have about systems, the systemic ​organisation of the concrete world, the origin ​and evolution of kinds of systems, systemic perspectives on the nature of meanings, value, and purposes; 
 +applied systems philosophy: critical reflection using systemic approaches, the development of systemic transdisciplinarity,​ systems research addressing the ‘Big Questions’. 
 +You are cordially invited to contribute a paper relevant to any aspect of the scope outlined above.
