UK Chapter of the International System Dynamics Society
Joint meeting with the OR Society SD+ Study group

Annual Gathering - 7th & 8th February 2008

You are invited to register now for this event, get your registration
form here
http://www.gsdoffice.co.uk/uksd/Meeting ... n-form.pdf

valid to 31 December and that as the event is being held in London this
year accommodation is booked separately, see registration form for
details and prices. If you need additional information please contact
Theodora Kennedy at conference@systemdynamics.org.uk
<mailto:conference@systemdynamics.org.uk>

This year's theme is 'SD-plus', and is being run in collaboration with
the UK Operational Research Society's system dynamics study group. The
theme means that we will be looking at the opportunity to connect with
other approaches. Speakers this year are:

* John Morecroft and Stewart Robinson: Comparing SD and DES:
lessons from fisheries
* Colin Eden: Combining Problem Structuring and SD Group
Modelling: experiences and prospects
* Jim Lyneis: Integrating SD Models With Other Tools and
Approaches: Insights from 25 Years of Consulting

Benefits of attending:

* Hear from experts the complementary perspectives provided by
system dynamics and discrete-event simulation [DES]
* Learn about the ways in which related approaches are used to
tackle strategic issues
* ... and on the second day explore with colleagues how
discrete-event simulation complements system dynamics

As in previous years, it will be a great pleasure to share in the award
of the Chapter's student prize for an outstanding piece of system
dynamics work. Following this award on the morning of the second day
will be a PhD colloquium at which students will have a chance to share
their work. For more information on this please contact Mike Quigley
m.quigley@salford.ac.uk <mailto:m.quigley@salford.ac.uk>

In addition, we will be delighted to be awarding a new prize, sponsored
by transport planning consultancy Steer Davies Gleave, for outstanding
professional work that has promoted the use of System Dynamics to
address real and significant problems of public interest.

Lastly, if you have benefited from the society, please do consider
putting yourself forward for the committee - or just as an occasional
helper. The group is run on an entirely voluntary basis and any
contribution would be welcome. Reply to this email in the first instance
if you are able to help.

We look forward to seeing you at the gathering!

Susan Howick (President) and all the Policy Council.
