The PhD Colloquium is a whole day event for students to present and discuss their current research about foundations, techniques, and applications in the area of System Dynamics. Junior and senior System Dynamics practitioners and academics meet here every year to exchange ideas about studentsí projects in an inspiring, international, and open-minded atmosphere. Plenary presentations by students at the colloquium will identify common problems encountered by student researchers in their theses. Presentations are followed by a discussion session, providing a unique opportunity for learning among all attendants, and particularly for young researchers. Combined with keynote addresses, parallel and poster sessions, a social event and an annual group photograph, we expect the all-day colloquium to be an exciting and insightful event. Everyone is more than welcome to join the PhD Colloquium. It is a great opportunity to meet students from around the world and exchange ideas.
