Submissions
Paper Submissions

Submit papers and supporting materials to conference.systemdynamics.org.

Papers may be submitted from February 2, 2015 to March 18, 2015. They will undergo a double-blind review and must be in sufficient detail for the referees to judge their meaning and value. Submissions must be in English, should be 5-30 pages in length (maximum 2 MB file size), and follow the submission requirements on the conference website. Abstracts are not accepted!

Provision of models (maximum 2 MB file size in addition to the paper) and other supporting materials to aid the review process is strongly encouraged and will be a factor in paper evaluation.

The Program Committee selects papers for inclusion in the program and determines the form of presentation (though authors may request presentation as a poster at the time of submission). Acceptance notices will be sent by May 7, 2015.

Authors retain the copyright to all submitted work and, by submitting, grant permission for inclusion of their title and abstract in the conference record. Each paper must have a designated presenter and one individual can be a designated presenter for at most two works. Presenters not registered by June 2, 2015 will have their papers automatically removed from the schedule. All attendees, whether presenting or not, must register for the conference.

Workshop/Special Proposals

Proposals for workshops and tutorials are welcome and can be submitted online between February 2, 2015 and March 18, 2015.

Special proposals for plenary or parallel sessions, panel discussions, roundtables, and other pre- or post-conference activities are encouraged. Please provide a clear description and, when appropriate, include the names of speakers and the titles of papers that would be part of the session. Proposals should be sent to progchair@systemdynamics.org.

Good work in System Dynamics is often relevant to multiple communities. The conference promotes the diffusion of knowledge generally and System Dynamics particularly. Work that has been submitted to, accepted for, or already presented at another conference, or accepted but not yet published in a journal, will be considered. An article already published in a journal in English should not be submitted.

Real-World Practice

System Dynamics is aimed at solving important practical problems. We welcome people interested in such real-world applications. If you have ideas for sessions and workshops focused on addressing practical issues in specific commercial or scientific fields, please contact us.

Important Guidelines for Conference Web Proceedings

Please keep in mind the following important guidelines for our Conference Proceedings.

Conference papers and presentations are a networking tool for members of the Society and those who attend a conference. The Conference provides a venue for presenting work and receiving comments that can strengthen the work and help to prepare it for wider distribution.

The Society will produce and maintain Web Proceedings of abstracts and papers to provide a complete record of presentations at the Conference. The Web Proceedings are not intended to be a substitute for publishing in peer-reviewed journals.

The strength of the field requires publishing good work, to reach audiences beyond those attending our conferences. Consult with highly experienced professional system dynamics colleagues for suggestions on making your work ready for publication and for suggestions of where to publish.

Abbreviating your paper for the Web proceedings is a good idea if you intend to publish it after the conference, as many journals will refuse to publish the same paper that has appeared elsewhere, including conference proceedings.
