The Leibniz Sozietät der Wissenschaften zu Berlin e.V. (LS) hosted the first meeting of the group as Arbeitskreis (working group) of the LS “Emergente Systeme, Information und Gesellschaft” (the German translation of the group name). It took place on 10 December 2015, in the Rathaus Tiergarten (see photo) in Berlin. The motto was the dictum of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz “Theoria cum praxi et commune bonum”. In the context of the group it meant: theory (systems theory) intertwined with praxis (informatics) for the common good (a global sustainable information society).
