Call for Presenters: Society Seminar Series
2022 is just around the corner and we’re scheduling Seminars for the first semester of the year. We’ve been experimenting with different settings such as presentations, panels, hands-on webinars, and roundtables. These seminars are our most popular events and range from 60 (at roundtables) to 560 attendees (at free hands-on seminars).
Send us your seminar proposal today!
Present your work, run a workshop, do a hands-on practice session, or start a discussion about a topic!
The Society Seminar Series consists of periodic online meetings on topics of interest to the systems thinking and System Dynamics communities. These virtual activities cover a wide range of topics that cross many domains while bringing together academics, practitioners, and students together for learning and lively discussion.
Our seminars aim to:
- Promote systems thinking and System Dynamics
- Develop skills to effectively apply the approach
- Generate discussions and connections worldwide
- Gather our community together to strengthen the field
- Showcase high-quality practitioners and academic work
Learn more about our type of Seminars and submit your proposal:
Single Presentation: for practitioners and academics who want to showcase their work to our community. We’re looking for high-quality work, especially work with positive outcomes applying System Dynamics and/or systems thinking for better decision-making. For example, Andrew Jones shared his valuable Top 10 Tips to Engage People With a System Dynamics Model for over 250 participants.
Panel: formed by two or more presenters about a single topic aiming at a discussion and exchange of ideas. This format is great to demonstrate the adaptability of System Dynamics in solving complex problems. The System Dynamics for Climate Change Mitigation panel gathered together presenters with different perspectives from Climate Interactive, Millenium Institute, and The Climate Initiative at Umass Lowell .
Workshop: help our community to develop specific skills and engage in intensive discussion on a particular subject. At the beginning of 2021, we had a workshop on Group Model Building Online where a group of researchers shared their experience and materials.
Hands-on Practice: guide our audience on a step-by-step practice. Help them develop specific skills such as basics of System Dynamics modeling, Causal Loop Diagramming, use of software features, and much more. With over 560 attendees, the Introduction to Modelling Process seminar allowed participants to take their first steps on System Dynamics modeling.
Roundtable: we want to hear the opinion of our members on several topics. The roundtable setting helps us give voice to all attendees and to hone our efforts on what’s most important for our community. With help of facilitators and the Miro platform, we were able to gather opinions on How to Get System Dynamics into Universities Programs.
