8th Annual System Dynamics Conference in South Africa Integrated System Dynamics for Investing in the Future

November 18, 2020 - November 19, 2020

8th Annual System Dynamics Conference in South Africa

Integrated System Dynamics for Investing in the Future

18-19 November 2020

Archimedes Auditorium, Eskom Research Testing & Development, Johannesburg, South Africa

The South Africa System Dynamics Chapter (SASDC) aims to promote the interchange of learning, research and real-world application of systems thinking and system dynamics approaches in understanding and managing complex real world problems facing South Africa and Africa as a whole. The SASDC is hosting the 8th Annual System Dynamics Conference in South Africa (8ASDC) to create a networking platform for systems thinkers and system dynamicists to present novel work which contributes to systems thinking and system dynamics theory, methodology or empirics. Papers should contribute to the conference theme of Integrated System Dynamics for Investing in the Future. Due to the unforeseen impact of the COVID19 virus and various measures which have been put in place to prevent inadvertent spreading of the virus, this year our conference will be of a mixed virtual and physical participatory nature. Due to the numerous efforts on system dynamics modelling of the virus, one of the key tracks for the 2020 conference will be on Health Dynamics. Other themes include:

Political & organizational dimensions of sustainable prosperity / Humanitarian Dynamics/ Education/ Social and psychological understandings/ Transport and Mobility/ Natural Resource Management/ Transformative Technology/ Finance/ Governance Transitions
Papers must not be under submission elsewhere and will be included in accredited proceedings, which will be electronically available to all SASDC members.
