Abstract for: China Chapter Annual Meeting
The first System Dynamics Academic Forum for Postgraduates was hosted by Shanghai University of International Business and Economics, Nov 1-2, 2013. About 80 postgraduate students and young scholars from more than 17 universities and institutes attended the forum. This forum brought the present members together with several keynote speeches and an academic salon. We believe that it has offered an extensive examination into the academics and application of SD. The second SD academic forum is offering on middle of November, 2014. Around 6 members of the China Chapter attended the 31st international conference of SDS where Qian Ying chaired the Chapter meeting.
