The American Society for Cybernetics 2003 Conference was held in Vienna, Austria. It revolved about the two themes.

Part II. Knowledge-Organisation-Society (13-15 November). Heinz von Foerster and the Biological Computer Laboratory (University of Vienna and Austrian Society of Cognitive Science).
This was part of a “Heinz von Foerster week” – a weeklong event co-sponsored by the ASC, the Institute for Systemisches Coaching and Training (ISCT), the University of Vienna, The Austrian Society of Cognitive Science (ASOCS).
