Vol 2, No 1 (2014)

With this issue we inaugurate our renaming to Systema and our new editorial positioning as announced in January 2014.

As this issue of Systema goes to press we are looking forward to the kick-off of the EMCSR 2014 in just three weeks’ time.  In anticipation we devote this issue to a special celebration of the previous EMCSR, by publishing selected keynote presentations, award winners, and papers from related symposia.
