Conference on System Dynamics in India

Post by bm@hijli.iitkgp.ernet.in » Mon Apr 06, 1998 9:44 am

The following conference on system dynamics will be held in India. Please
note that this is not the conference of the System Dynamics Society - that
conference is being held in Quebec City in July. The "System Dynamics
Society of India" has no formal relationship with the System Dynamics Society,
though there are some obvious intellectual ties.
