The 27th International Conference of The System Dynamics Society
July 26 – 30, 2009 ---  Albuquerque, USA

Hosted by:
Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, New Mexico USA

Co-hosted by:
Argonne National Laboratory, Idaho National Laboratory, Paul Scherrer Institut

Conference Information: Call for Papers, Presentations, Workshops and Sessions

Join us in "The Land of Enchantment" for a unique combination of architecture, scenery, culture and history. Located at the foot of the Sandia Mountains in the Rio Grande Valley, Albuquerque is a bustling melting pot that retains the spirit of the Southwest. It is an attractive and affordable leisure destination with numerous museums, cultural and artistic centers, a zoo, a botanical garden, and an aquarium. The city is crisscrossed with bike paths, sprinkled with golf courses, and surrounded by Native American Pueblos and landmarks of ancient civilization.

Program: The 2009 program will emphasize high-impact applications and research on the difficult issues at the leading edges of the field. It will consist of invited and contributed sessions and workshops demonstrating the state of the art in the theory and application of system dynamics. We will also schedule exhibits, model-assistance workshops, panel discussions, special sessions, a student colloquium and the business meetings of the society. There will be time for social and professional interaction in a relaxed, historic setting. The bulk of the presentations will be based on full papers submitted through the regular process and placed in existing program threads.
