Please take a look to see the list of research topics and documented applications solving real world problems. To name a few, some plenary session titles include Award-Worthy System Dynamics Applications; Supply Lines and Resources; Methodology: Analysis and Data; and Governance.

Additionally, the Thursday Workshop Schedule is also available. All levels of workshops will be offered; enhance your skill set!

The Modeling Assistance Workshop, the Newcomer Orientation, and the Red Ribbon Event are perennial favorites, all returning to the Delft conference. Additionaly, building on the success of last year, the Model Expo will return to the schedule this year. Meet the sponsors and exhibitors to learn about their new products and developments.
