The System Dynamics Society connects 1,400+ students, professionals, academics, and industry leaders who share research, ideas, and best practices in systems thinking and System Dynamics. Sponsorship allows us to better serve our membership and expand systems thinking globally while increasing your long-term exposure to those in the field.
For those who prefer to specify a project for their donation, we offer a opportunities to advance our Career Link, Mentorship Program, Seminar Series, Covid-19 Resource Page, Bibliography, Learning Resources, and Marketing the Field. Each project has been progressing, but will benefit from further funding to increase our capacity to deliver.
The Society invites you to become a University Partner. University Partners get special logo placement on our degree course listing and receive $5 discounts on membership for all current full-time students and recent graduates (those completing their degree in the last two years). Discount codes will be sent you shortly after payment.
Simply put, without our generous sponsors, our annual conference would not be affordable to the vast majority of the System Dynamics community. Your contribution allows us to reduce the cost while providing you an unparalleled opportunity to get your brand in front of those in the field interested in what you have to offer.
$1,500 - $6,000
As a thread sponsor, your organization can reach a targeted segment of our annual conference attendees by sponsoring one of our sixteen conference threads. In addition to powerful pre-event promotions and on-site exposure, this sponsorship provides opportunities for post-conference visibility for your organization.
Due to the generous support of sponsors, we were able to fund a record breaking 40 scholars who otherwise might not have been able to attend the 2020 conference. Join us in developing the future leaders of our field by making a contribution to sponsor 2021 conference attendance by scholars. Every contribution goes directly to a scholar.
