A review of journals in the field(s) of Foresight and Futures Studies point to a tension in the relationship between Foresight and Futures theory and practice. Whether to treat “Foresight studies” and “Futures studies” as two different fields, or to treat them as one field and write “Foresight and Futures Studies” is probably a matter of debate among the researchers. Interested individuals from academic (economics, management, political science, engineering) and business worlds are invited to come together to discuss and communicate on challenging problems related to theory building in Foresight and Future Studies within the historic and mystic environment of Istanbul.
The Yeditepe International Research Conference on Foresight and Futures takes place from August 24 to 26, 2011.
