Francisco Parra Luna’s Second Presidency

A new phase began that suggested a change of headquarters from Valencia to Madrid. Thanks to Rafael Rodriguez de Cora’s initiative, SESGE is making an effort to strengthen and update the three functions that have been developed in the Valencian phase: didactic (management is organizing a Master of Systems), investigation (the RIS continues to be associated with Valencia University), and international through the organizations that SESGE already has a relationship with.

Rafael Lostado’s Firs Presidency

Since the foundation of SESGE, it has developed its activities first in Madrid and later in Valencia. Since 1997 and under the aegis of Lorenzo Ferrer who, as a professor at the University of Valencia, created the School of Operational Research in which the closest members of SESGE developed an activity focused as much in teaching (Master in Systems); as in research (International Review of Systems); as in international relations consisting of participation in various conferences organized by the Union Européénne des Systémes, the International Society for the Systems Sciences and other systemic societies like French, Greek or British ones. During this time, apart from the invaluable work of Professor Lorenzo Ferrer, we must highlight the research and scientific work carried out by Antonio Caselles and Rafael Pla, not to mention Ignacio Martínez de Lejarza, Rodolfo Hernandez, Rafael Soler, and Rafael Lostado as its last president. All of them are owed explicit recognition for their work.
