Publishing Assistance Workshop

At the Publishing Assistance Workshop, expert mentors will be available to offer guidance aimed at navigating the publishing process for those puzzled about how to get their System Dynamics research and applications papers published. Participants should each bring a paper with them and be ready to discuss their options and next steps. Sessions will be 20 minutes.


The Publishing Assistance Workshop will be held Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday during the lunch break. If you think you may be interested in receiving assistance on a publishing question at the conference, please write to George P. Richardson at [email protected]  in advance to schedule a session.
