Society for Social Management Systems
OverviewIn most countries, existing social systems do not function properly in response to the demands of the present era, such as the recent changes in social and economic structures, and the recent changes in societal values. Therefore, the structural reform of these social systems has become an urgent issue in many fields.Social system direct society and thus envelope many fields such as management for administration, regional socio-economical management, disaster management, infrastructure management and education management. In order to adapt current social systems to meet these new demands it is necessary to effectively and efficiently utilize hard and soft infrastructure, as well as human and financial resources. For this purpose, the collaboration of social scientists (sociology, psychology, economics, public administration etc.) and engineering scientists (civil engineering, architect, mechanics, information technology etc.) is essential. The mission of the Society for Social Management Systems is to make a practical contribution to the improvement of social systems.
