2015 Conference of the System Dynamics Society 23.07.2015 Rene Reiter

The annual System Dynamics conference brings together people from around the world to share important research and application results and to build the community of those active in the field. The 2015 conference theme is “Reinventing Life on a Shrinking Earth.” While Earth has not changed size in absolute terms, it is shrinking with respect to the activity it supports. Complex business and societal challenges have arisen from the increasing activity on the globe that conventional institutional designs have failed to address.
