Conference Proceedings

conference record

The International System Dynamics Conference (ISDC) provides a venue for presenting work and receiving comments that can strengthen the work and help to prepare it for wider distribution. The materials archived in the Conference Record are networking tools for members of the Society, those who attended the conference, and the System Dynamics community more broadly. The Society’s Conference Record is published as web proceedings. All contributions to the Conference Record have abstracts, author information, and an optional hyperlink to additional information. Authors of work presented at Poster, Parallel, and Plenary sessions may contribute a paper file (extended abstract, full paper, or slides) and supplementary material for the Conference Record.
