  The international support of the European Meetings on Cybernetics
  and Systems Research held in Austria in 1972, 1974, 1976, 1978,
  1980, 1982, 1984, 1986, 1988, 1990, 1992, 1994, 1996, 1998, 2000,
  2002, 2004 and 2006 (when 500 scientists from more than 40
  countries from all continents, except the Antarctica, met to
  present, hear and discuss 137 papers) encouraged the Council
  of the Austrian Society for Cybernetic Studies (OSGK) to organize
  a similar meeting in 2008 to keep pace with continued rapid
  developments in related fields.
