Benelux Chapter Conference, 29 January 2015​ in The Hague

Postby Roberta Spencer » Wed Dec 10, 2014 12:15 pm

The Benelux Chapter announces the conference on System Dynamics Cooperation in Practice with Policy Makers and Social Scientists. The conference is organized by the Benelux Chapter together with PBL and TNO. It will be held in The Hague on 29 January 2015. You are invited to send in abstracts for papers of your System Dynamics related work, proposals for workshops or sessions and proposals for parallel streams. The conference is particularly interested in successful examples of applied System Dynamics research. The theme of the conference is based on the growth of the System Dynamics field in Benelux. Hundreds of students with some degree of System Dynamics knowledge graduate annually from one of the universities. The conference organizers write “But, if we look at policy making, governance and social science, only a small group of SD practitioners are able to integrate these worlds. What are the main reasons for SD not being used to the fullest in other areas? Are problems in social science and policy too complex to model with SD? Or are SD models too complex for policy makers and social scientist to understand? Does a gap exist between what SD has to offer and other areas of research and policy makers demand? And how can we cope with the uncertainty existing in (global) politics? During this conference, we would like to invite everyone interested or active in System Dynamics or related fields – including policy makers and social scientists – to show, discuss and elaborate on how we can aid policy makers and social scientist in their occupation.” To learn more about submission details, due dates, registration, and contact information, please visit the Benelux LinkedIn page or contact Tom Logtens at
