The fourteenth international conference of the System Dynamics Society will be held July 22-25,1996, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The conference will attract more than two hundred practitioners interested in policy studies based on systems thinking and computer simulation informed by a feedback perspective.
The conference will consist of plenary and parallel sessions with deliberate opportunities for relaxed social and professional interaction.
Plenary sessions will feature refereed presentations of current developments in system dynamics and exemplary applications of system dynamics and systems thinking. Parallel sessions will cover the range of work being done by system dynamics practitioners worldwide, including:
The program will include tutorial sessions and workshops led by senior people in the field to provide an introduction to system dynamics, facilitate moving from systems thinking to systems simulation, explore current software, and experience simulation-based flight simulators and learning laboratories.
