Networking Events

Three or four times a year, the chapter organises an informal evening “networking” event in London where you can meet SD practitioners and members of the policy council.  Such events often include short presentations by anyone with anything interesting to say!

Upcoming Events..

THEME : Building resilient cities through simulation (including System Dynamics)

VENUE: THINKLab pod, University of Salford, 7th Floor Maxwell Building, The Crescent, Salford, Greater Manchester, M5 4WT

DATE:     Thursday 6th July 2017

TIME:     1:30 to 5:00pm


Salford will be sharing some of the research being conducted at the centre and believe that it will generate an interesting discussion on simulation modelling in disaster management and associated public policy. Salford are also hoping to form a working group on this topic in the future and welcome your participation. Policy Council members from the UK Chapter of the System Dynamics Society will be present to answer your questions at this event.

Event Objectives:

  • To provide an interdisciplinary opportunity for discussing the application of System Dynamics to a significant challenge facing our cities;
  •  To provide a networking opportunity for those in Manchester, and wider afield, with an interest in System Dynamics
  • To provide an opportunity for people to find out more about System Dynamics and its Applications.
