This website is called the  Journal of the International Society for the Systems Sciences. 

The ISSN number for this journals site is 1999 6918   More information here https://portal.issn.org/resource/ISSN/1999-6918

It is hosted on software called "Open Journal System". 

This website purpose is to

1. contain the proceedings of the ISSS Annual Meetings from 2006, and

2. accept abstracts for the annual meeting and conference. 

In 2019 we moved this website from older servers to a new hosting arrangement with Simon Fraser University.  That has resulted in some changes to the look and feel and also the way the website is working. We are still adjusting to this new arrangement and ask for your patience as we adapt our abstract process to this new installation.
