Re: Workshops and Courses

Postby Stefano Armenia » Fri May 09, 2014 4:56 am

Hi all,

this might be an additional nice opportunity to present some SD & ST related work here in Europe (I will be the Track Chair for the System Dynamics & Systems Thinking Track), which also preludes to the opportunity to publish the best track papers into a special issue (see details below and here: http://bslab-symposium.net/3rd-internat ... rtunities/) of the Int. J. of Applied Systemic Studies (IJASS), of which I will be the Guest Editor.

Please disseminate as most appropriately deemed.

Best regards,
Stefano Armenia
