This volume was published jointly by the Polish Operational and System Research Society and the Systems Research Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences together with The Interfaces Institute on behalf of MODEST.

Elaboration of the volume was made possible owing to the funding from the EU CompEcs Human Capital and Mobility project, carried out under the European contracts ERBCHRXCT930231 (for the years 1993-1995) and ERBCIPDCT940015 (for the years 1994-1996), and headed by Professor Lionello F. Punzo of the University of Siena.

Research results reported in the book and the international cooperation behind these results are also largely attributable to the activities of and funding within the above project.

The papers here contained have either been presented at the second annual meeting in September 1996 in Jabłonna or are the result of collaboration within the MODEST network, aiming at bringing adequate rationality and quality to the representation, analysis, as well as, potentially, design, for the transformation processes.

The generic, albeit not exclusive, paradigm that we refer to is the systemic one, involving a possibly holistic and multiaspect view of reality. The paradigm includes also the conviction that the rationality mentioned is closely related to the possibility and effectiveness of formal representation of the real structures and processes. This whole set of prerequisites was also the basis for the selection of papers to this volume. It was also the basis for the Editor's Comments to the volume's papers, given at the end of the volume.
