10th Annual South African System Dynamics 

 

2022 Student-Organized Colloquium

The Student-Organized Colloquium is a free, one-day online and in-person event organized by the Student Chapter of the System Dynamics Society held on the first day of the International System Dynamics Conference (ISDC). The Student-Organized Colloquium promotes dialogue among system dynamicists of varying fields, levels of training and backgrounds and creates spaces to have meaningful conversations about the topics that we all care about so that everyone can share and receive feedback to improve their work.

The format of the event consists mainly of breakout sessions in which doctoral, masters and undergraduate students, as well as practitioners, professionals and academics in any field who are new to System Dynamics (less experienced, mentees, juniors) can discuss their ideas and concerns, and get mentored by more experienced system dynamicists (mentors, seniors).

For more information, please visit the Student-Organized Colloquium Webpage.

Don’t forget to submit your papers.

The ISDC2022 theme is “Diversity” and we embrace this theme in all its dimensions. Diversity in teams encourages innovation and enhances decision-making and problem-solving. Therefore, expect speakers from diverse backgrounds, submissions on topics such as gender, race or ethnicity, class, age and ability, etc., and submissions that demonstrate diverse ways of doing System Dynamics.

The 2022 Conference will take place at the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management. The campus offers excellent infrastructure to host the System Dynamics Society annual meeting. In addition, for those attending the Conference in Frankfurt, a one-week public transport pass is included in the ticket. The city offers a wide range of transport infrastructure and moving around is easy. For instance, the subway station Deutsche Nationalbibliothek is just a few minutes away from the main auditorium.

There are a limited number of accommodation options near the 2022 Conference site. However, we recommend staying near a subway station to make your commute easier.

Korean System Dynamics Conference

The Korean System Dynamics Conference for the first half of 2021 will be held on March 27 @ 10 am~6 pm KST(Korea Standard Time). The theme is “Pandemic and System Dynamics.” The SIR model is a long-standing and conventional topic of system dynamics. Therefore, System Dynamics is asked to take a role in the era of pandemic triggered by COVID19. 

At least one session will be organized with the non-Korean presenters, a milestone for international solidarity and co-research.  Also, this conference will be one sample trial for overcoming the language barrier. All non-Korean presenters are allowed to use mother-language under the guidance of translation as below. 

Process for the Non-Korean presenter:

  1. Submit a letter of intent to korean@systemdynamics.org titled “Non-Korean presenter” articulating the title of the presentation, and the information of the author(s), name, affiliation, nationality, and the verbal language for the presentation, by March 13
  2. Communicate with the assigned Korean assistant for the conference and could-be panelists for your presentation.
  3. Submit script file in English by March 19.  Your script will be translated into Korean. So, the script should be indexed page by page of the presentation file.
  4. Submit the presentation file in English by March 22. The presentation file should be written in English even though you may present it in another language.
  5. Practice rehearsing before the conference with the help of the Korean assistant.
