All conference meetings take place in the IUC-building (300 meters North West to the main gate of the Old City at Frana Bulica 4; the large yellow three floor building); the exact room is announced at the entrance
The home-page for IUC is www.iuc.hr
The program is preliminary (some participants may need less and some more time). Presentations should be prepared (with paper, and or with power points, slides, or handouts); they should not endure more than 30 minutes and leave 30-45 minutes for discussions.
Preload: Sunday 13.9: 7 p.m. (19.00) - Sunday evening dinner in restaurant Orhan in the little harbor right north to the Main entrance to the Old City; Map: https://firstname.lastname@example.org,18.1048727,19z
Fee 40-45 Euros
In the InterUniversity Centre there is a good and cheap café to be used during the 15 minutes pause. During the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) there is an equally good café and actually quite good restaurant in front of the IUC. A computer room is at the second floor, next to the IUC secretariat.
NB in the airport 25 km South to Dubrovnik there is a Mister Cash for credit cards; one Croatian kuona is approximately = about 15 cents (0,15 Euros). A taxi costs about 30-35 euros, the bus is much cheaper; then, however you should change money immediately in the airport banking automats.
If you like to swim, it is a very good idea to bring adequate swimming cloathes with you since the Adriatic is about 25-26 Celcius and very good and close bathing possibilities are very nearby the centre. The normal weather in September is about 25-30 degrees max and evening about 20+. However, it can be recommended to take a raincoat in your luggage.

List of e-mail addresses to be used when you send your paper:
As an overall introduction to the theme of the conference it could be fortunate to have read the German or English, Italian, Danish or Spanish or a similar version of for instance Niklas Luhmann: Soziale Systeme, Frankfurt a.M.: Suhrkamp 1984, chapter 9, pp. 488 – 550.
The conference days are separated according to the abstracts proposed. They fit into a scheme of differentiated or separated powers: Communication Conflicts, Organisation Conflicts, Conflicts in Law, Political Conflicts, and Ecological Conflicts. Furthermore, we might have some second order observation from the perspective of art.
The present program is also sent to former participants from conferences about systems theory (in April 2007, September 2009, April 2011, September 2012, May 2014) to make it possible for those who could not participate to require information and papers from you.
