Papers may be submitted from September 1, 2016 to October 13, 2016. They will undergo a double-blind review and must be in sufficient detail for the referees to judge their meaning and value. Submissions must be in English, should be 5-30 pages in length (maximum 2 MB file size), and follow the submission requirements on the conference website. Abstracts are not sufficient for consideration! Here are two articles from long-time reviewer, Tom Fiddaman, with tips on writing good System Dynamics Conference papers. SDpaper-writing-tips1 and SDpaper-writing-tips2
Inclusion of models (maximum 2 MB file size in addition to the paper) and other supporting materials to aid the review process is strongly encouraged and may be a factor in paper evaluation.
The Program Committee selects papers for inclusion in the program and determines the form of presentation (though authors may request presentation as a poster at the time of submission). Acceptance notices will be sent by December 12, 2016.
Authors retain the copyright to all submitted work and, by submitting, grant permission for inclusion of their title and abstract in the conference record. Papers must be presented at the conference to be included in the proceedings. Each paper must have a designated presenter and normally one individual can be a designated presenter for at most two works. Presenters not registered by December 26, 2016 will have their papers automatically removed from the schedule. All attendees, whether presenting or not, must register for the conference.
Student Research Colloquium
The Student Research Colloquium is a half-day event devoted to students working on foundations, techniques, tools, and applications of the System Dynamics approach that includes oral and poster presentations. The main objective of the colloquium is to create an environment where the students can benefit from experience, discussion, and feedback provided by senior modellers, researchers, practitioners, and other students in the field. The colloquium will take place on February 19, the Sunday preceding the conference.
We warmly invite undergraduate, graduate, and PhD students to share their knowledge by attending the colloquium or by submitting their outstanding work. You will receive valuable feedback from experienced researchers and from fellow students. If you have any enquiries, please write to Huong Nguyen at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please click here to read the submission instructions.
We welcome proposals from individuals, institutions, and software vendors to offer workshops at the 2nd Asia-Pacific Region System Dynamics Conference. Software vendors are encouraged to propose workshops that will introduce conference attendees to the mechanics of their software and that will provide an opportunity for attendees to get hands-on experience with a demo version of their software. Introductory software workshops have received great reviews from attendees of prior International System Dynamics Conferences and we believe such workshops will prove to be extremely beneficial at this conference as well. Individuals and institutions who are interested in conducting workshops on specific topics—including real-world-application of System Dynamics, and innovative approaches to teaching System dynamics—are also welcome. Proposals to offer one or more workshops should include title, workshop description, and names of the facilitators that will deliver the workshop. If you have any enquiries, please write to John Ansah at email@example.com. Please click here to read the submission instructions.
