Open Space

A fun and informal session where less experienced participants get a chance to talk about their work (successes and challenges) and any System Dynamics related topics while gaining a perspective from more experienced (senior, mentor) system dynamicists. Participants engage in smaller break-out groups and get an opportunity to set an agenda of topics they’d like to discuss as a group in the allotted time.


Keynote: An experienced system dynamicist will give a keynote address about their journey in system dynamics and how System Dynamics relates to this year’s Student-Organized Colloquium theme.

Student Presentations: Based on a competitive review process, two to three students will be chosen to present a 20-minute oral paper presentation of their work.

Poster Session

Participants can interact with one another whilst viewing the varied selection of posters presented by less experienced system dynamicists. 

Angel Advising Session

During this time, poster presenters can meet with their Angel Advisors to receive dedicated feedback on their work.
