The following are the complaints of the 3rd overseas Workshop on Human and computer notion held in Pavia, Italy, on September 14 -17, 1998. This variation has been below the auspices of 2 associations: the Cybernetic and Biophysics crew (GNCB) of the Italian nationwide study Council (CNR), the Centro Interdipartimentale di Scienze Cognitive, of Pavia college and the Centro Interdipartimentale Tecnologie della Conoscenza, of Palermo college. a large spectrum of issues is roofed during this sequence, starting from machine belief to psychology and body structure of notion, for analysing and evaluating organic and synthetic ways. The topic of this workshop used to be excited by "Emergence, consciousness and Creativity". The workshop constitution consisted of 5 modules each composed of 2 invited lectures (dealing with recommendations in nature and machines respectively) and a panel dialogue. The lectures taken with proposing the state of the art and outlining open questions. particularly, they sought to emphasize hyperlinks, suggesting attainable synergies among diversified cultural parts. The panel dialogue used to be conceived as a discussion board for an open debate, in brief brought by means of every one panellist, and ordinarily aimed toward deeper research for different techniques and strictly similar subject matters. The panellists have been requested to organize a couple of statements on hot-points, which have been added upfront to the contributors as a consultant for a professional discussion.

These cases take place when the observer looking at a structure whose elements are passive, attributes some capability to them and sees some new patterns emerge because of this capability. P. Mussio and P. Bottoni 26 A typical example occurs when experts in some field communicate and reason through multimedia documents. Experts generally develop a notation to express and support their reasoning and to describe the intermediate and final results of these activities. They use this notation to produce documents in which texts, pictures and graphs are organised and assume a meaning according to the conventions adopted by them.

Control in the classical sense is countreproductive. ) which encourage creativity and innovation in the system without prohibiting maturation of ideas. Some rules have been established for this purpose, such as the hierarchical selection scheme; but there are also open questions, such as how to find the political center between conservativism and permanent revolution, or how to facilitate the emergence of higher degree complexity.
