On December 4, 2014, the Brazilian Chapter of the System Dynamics Society held a one-day symposium in São Paulo. Three of the presentations are now available (video & slides) at the Chapter webpage
- by Kim Warren, on "Agile System Dynamics: Fast, Effective, Reliable"
- by Khalid Saeed, on "Economic Development, Creative Destruction and Urban Dynamics: Proposal for Rethinking Developmental Agendas"
- by Andrew Ford, on "Energy Market Dynamics: Lessons from the Case Study of Energy Storage for the Ontario Power System"
The Brazil Chapter welcomes everyone who may be interested in these topics to visit their webpage and to benefit from the availability of these materials, thanks to the generosity of our colleagues Kim, Khalid and Andy. These presentations were possible thanks to the initiative and technology provided by Karim Chichakly, of isee systems. The symposium was organized by our Chapter President Marciano Morozowski and hosted by Edmilson Moraes, at FEI University. Fifty participants attended in person. Local presenters were Edmilson Moraes, Newton Bueno, João Arantes and Rudolf Flunger.
The Chapter leadership has decided to expand the symposium this year (2015), to include not only presentations but also posters (on October 2), and workshops (on October 3). The event will once again be hosted by Edmilson Moraes at FEI University, in São Paulo. Marciano Morozowski and Karim Chichakly have agreed to serve as Program and Workshop Chairs, respectively. A call for papers is being prepared and key deadlines will be announced soon.
