UK System Dynamics Student Colloquium, Cardiff 2018

Celebrating excellence in System Dynamics

CALL FOR PAPERS

The UK System Dynamics Students Colloquium will take place on the 13th April 2018 (pm) in Cardiff (day 2 of our UK Conference), featuring:

  • A colloquium to support students interested in System Dynamics
  • Quality advice from experts and practitioners
  • A chance to interact with experts from industry and academia
  • An opportunity to attend the keynote sessions and engaged presentation

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

The UK System Dynamics Students Colloquium is now open for Abstract Submission. A short abstract (not exceeding 300 words) is invited for presentation or poster submission. Students who wish to be considered for the student prize must evidence their work with up to 20 pages of a research paper, inclusive of references, for review by a panel of leading system dynamists. All submissions must be made on or before the deadline. We thank you for your contribution to the UK Chapter of System Dynamics Society.

The Deadline for submitting extended abstracts and posters is 10th March 2018!

System Dynamics Colloquium, Reykjavik, 2018, Call for Papers

The System Dynamics Colloquium, previously known as the PhD colloquium will take place on the day before the System Dynamics Conference (August 6th), in Reykjavik, Iceland. The colloquium is meant to foster exchange amongst early career system dynamicists as well as exchange between them and those who are already established in the field.

We are encouraging  any early stage System Dynamics members of the UK Chapter to submit their work to the colloquium this year.

We would also like to draw your attention to the fact, that this year, scholarships will be available for application, for individuals that have submitted, and had their papers approved by the colloquium. This is an effort from our part, and the Student Chapter, to encourage participation from individuals using system dynamics from all over the world, and from a variety of fields.

Please find all of the information about the System Dynamics Colloquium in this brochure:

OR Society 9th Simulation Workshop

9th Simulation Workshop (SW18)

19 – 21 MARCH 2018

ETTINGTON CHASE HOTEL, STRATFORD, WORCESTERSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM CV37 7NZ

19th – 21st March 2018 sees the return of the OR Society’s biennial simulation workshop (SW18). The conference always boasts an excellent mix of delegates from the fields of simulation practice and research. The conference covers application and theoretical developments across all simulation methods, for example agent based simulation, system dynamics, discrete-event simulation and monte-carlo simulation. We have updated and refreshed the conference this year keeping the best of the original format and adding some exciting new elements.

Towards Smart Model-based Governance by Systems Thinking – Call for Papers

The aim of this Special Issue (SI) is to connect the two main topics towards which Kybernetes is currently steering its focus, Systems Thinking and Cybernetics, exploring their potential impacts in addressing and analysing complex issues in Social, Environmental and Economic domains,

The expected contributions to this Special Issue are related, but not limited, to the BSLab-SYDIC Workshop 2017 (http://bslab-symposium.net/BSLab-Sydic-2017/BSLAB-SYDIC-WS-Rome-2017.htm) whose attempt was to aggregate various issues from the wide topic of Smart Model-based Governance and its perspective of applications to the present and the future complex organisations.

The journal in which it will be published is KYBERNETES, Emerald Pub. (ISSN: 0368-492X)

Special Issue – The Use and Impact of Simulations in Management Education

This Special Issue aims to explore the use of simulations across different contexts within business and management education. Simulations have become increasingly important to academic programme activity within business and management schools. They are regarded as key tools for facilitating generative learning, allowing students to experience the excitement, challenge and operational reality of running a virtual organisation but in a safe, relatively risk-free environment. Whilst the benefits of simulations are often discussed in the literature, evidence regarding the impact of their use – in terms of attainment of learning outcomes, behavioral change, student experience or other measures – remains limited. A full understanding of whether the impact of simulations is consistently felt across different types of learner is also lacking. Additionally, further research on how the impact of simulation based learning might be enhanced is required.

Further details submission guidelines can be found here.
