TheATLAS Transdisciplinary-Transnational-Transcultural biennial meeting honoring Red McCombs was held at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas on May 23-28, 2010.

Plenary sessions and keynote panels were presented by prominent speakers. We were very happy to have many known researchers from transdisciplinarity community as plenary session speakers such as Dr. Basarab Nicolescu, Dr. Julie Thompson Klein and Dr. Christian Pohl and many others. May be for the first time, this conference brought researchers from social science, natural science, humanities and engineering to discuss and understand the complex issues related to development of global sustainable societies.
