Call for Transparency in COVID-19 Modeling

The Society has joined the call in Science Magazine for transparency in COVID-19 modeling and encourages open sharing of models and assumptions that will help us through this pandemic.  A number of members and partners have answered this call and we have gathered their models and thoughts to share with the world.  Please explore these COVID-19 resources and critique, use, improve, and share them with proper attribution to those who provided them. 

 Take Our Society Culture Survey

The Society has developed this pulse check to better understand how the field and the Society are perceived by the community at large. Please take a few moments to complete the survey to help us understand where we can best intervene in the system. It should take no more than 15 minutes. Thank you in advance for your time.

Volunteer for the Society

The System Dynamics society is looking for volunteers! Our members have much to offer, and we want you to help us build the field and make the society valuable for its members. Volunteering can lead to leadership positions in the System Dynamics Society, and can help volunteers to build relationships, shape the future of the Society, and give back to the community.
