The annual American Society for Cybernetics (ASC) conference took place on 1-5 June 2016 in Olympia, WA, and was hosted by Evergreen State College. The proceedings from this conference are presented in this volume of Kybernetes, continuing a tradition that has seen this journal publish the proceedings of recent ASC conferences in Troy, NY (Glanville and Sweeting, 2011), Asilomar, CA (Glanville and Griffiths, 2013), Bolton, UK (Glanville et al., 2014), and Washington, DC (Baron et al., 2015), showing the support from both sides in the further dissemination of research in cybernetics. The aim of the conference was to bring together people from various disciplines providing cross-disciplinary and meta-disciplinary conversations and addressing the relationship between reflection and action. These systemically connected topics were explored from a variety of perspectives and from various contexts, highlighting the way that action and reflection unfold in individuals and groups. The theme complements that of the 2013 ASC conference in Bolton, which explored the cybernetic relationship between acting, learning and understanding (Glanville et al., 2014).
