4. Purpose
The purpose of the symposium this year is to promote concept of “Translational Systems Science”. The concept of translational research originally comes from medical science for enhancing human health and well-being. Translational medical research is often labeled as “Bench to Bedside.” It places emphasis on translating the findings in basic research (at bench) more quickly and efficiently into medical practice (at bedside). At the same time, needs and demands from practice drive the development of new and innovative ideas and concepts. In this tightly coupled process it is essential to remove barriers to multi-disciplinary collaboration.
Translational Systems Science aims at cultivating a new frontier of systems sciences for contributing to the need for practical applications that benefit people. It attempts to bridge and integrate basic research founded in systems concepts, logic, theories and models with systems practices and methodologies, into a process of systems research. Since both bench and bedside involve diverse stakeholder groups, including researchers, practitioners and users, translational systems science works to create common platforms for language to activate the “bench to bedside” cycle.
To promote and share its idea, we decided to publish Translational Systems Science Book Series from Springer with serving as co-editors. So far we have published three volumes and more than ten volumes on the process since 2013.
In the symposium we invite some of the volume editors of the series to learn not only about frontiers of Translational Systems Science discussed his/her volume more intensively but also about the holistic picture of frontiers of Translational Systems Science.
Furthermore, because we have a plan of publishing a new “Handbook of Systems Sciences (tentative)” in a few years time, we want to discuss how we will achieve this big and long-term project to contribute to systems sciences.
