Overview

Special Interest Groups bring together members of the System Dynamics Society with a shared interest in a topic area. They meet during the annual conference, and communicate on an ad-hoc basis during the rest of the year. Some maintain websites with more information. You can also send an email to the SIG representative for more information on activities and ongoing conversations.

SIG Community Forums can be found here!

The requirements for forming a Special Interest Group are modest, essentially six Society members need to petition the Policy Council for recognition. Details on this process are available at Formation of a Special Interest Group
