The annual System Dynamics conference brings together people from around the world to share important research and application results and to build the community of those active in the field. For 2013 we return to the Cambridge-Boston area, just minutes from MIT where Jay Forrester conducted his groundbreaking work.

Systems Thinking World Group Rules - http://bit.ly/yIbf3c
Periodically members of Systems Thinking World berate me because I won't approve their post for the discussion segment of the group or because I relegate their submitted post to the promotions tab. If they had read the Group Rules, http://bit.ly/yIbf3c , a link for which was in the welcome message they received when they joined the group, they would probably have submitted their entry in a slightly different form.
Every attempt has been made to ensure the interactions at Systems Thinking World remain consistent with the premise and purpose under which the group was formed.
Premise: We believe a systemic perspective provides the best foundation for creating effective approaches for dealing with challenges and shaping a better tomorrow.
Purpose: Create content and foster interactions which further understanding of the value of a systemic perspective and enables thinking and acting systemically.
And every attempt will be made to remain consistent with this premise and purpose in the future.
