The 2021 Conference of the System Dynamics Society
Conference works and presentations are a networking tool for members of the Society and those who attend a conference. The Conference provides a venue for presenting work and receiving comments that can strengthen the work and help to prepare it for wider distribution.
For all presented work, the title, abstract, and author link you provided during submission will be retained in the conference record. For some presentation types, there is also an option to include an extended abstract and supporting material for the conference record. These materials may be submitted anytime after May 13, 2021 and updated until September 7, 2021 and this material will be permanently archived as the conference record..
The Conference Record is not intended to be a substitute for publishing in peer-reviewed journals. The strength of the field requires publishing good work, to reach audiences beyond those attending our conferences. Consult with highly experienced professional System Dynamics colleagues for suggestions on making your work ready for publication and for suggestions of where to publish.
All material presented at the conference will have the title, authors, abstract, and a link to author information included as part of the Conference Record. Work accepted for Plenary, Parallel, and Poster sessions will optionally have an extended abstract or set of slides (for application presentations) included in the Conference Record. Work from these sessions may also include models and other supplementary material useful for understanding the results presented.
Use the Author Link to provide access to the published version of the paper or the most current working draft for work that is not yet published. This can be done for all presentation types.
Extended abstracts should be short (< 5 pages) and include a bibliography. Slide presentations should be 5-30 slides). An example showing suggested formatting for Extended Abstracts. The basic content and presentation should follow the guidelines in Writing Up Work.
