The 33rd International Conference of the System Dynamics Society
July 19 – July 23, 2015
Massachusetts, USA

Overview 2015 The annual System Dynamics conference brings together people from around the world to share important research and application results and to build the community of those active in the field. For 2015 we return to Cambridge. The conference theme is “Reinventing Life on a Shrinking Earth.” While Earth has not changed size in absolute terms, it is definitely shrinking with respect to the activity it supports. We have all experienced the effects of the greater interconnectivity: global economic recession, global business competition, pandemics, crowding and congestion, depletion of natural resources, strategic acquisition of water supplies, rising health care costs and management, and rapid economic development in many nations, spurring resource depletion, pollution, and climate change. Complex business and societal challenges have arisen from the increasing activity on the globe that conventional institutional designs have failed to address. System Dynamics uniquely provides a strategic framework to explore the challenges of a shrinking Earth, giving a greater understanding and exposing counterintuitive insights that allow us to reinvent our institutions and our lives.
