The annual System Dynamics conference brings together people from around the world to share research and application results and to build the community of those active in the fi eld. The conference theme is “Black Swans and Black Lies: System Dynamics in the Context of Randomness and Political Power-play.” System Dynamics has proven useful to analyze dynamically complex economic, social, and environmental issues. It is an effective methodology for designing robust systems and policies.

We hope to challenge this usefulness in two areas: fi rst, when systems are prone to be affected by random events that we were not able to include in our models; second, when System Dynamics models are not used in a fair or transparent way. An example for the former is our tendency to model averages that fail to account for unlikely but important outlier effects that can both boom or bust an organization. An example of the latter is the intentional ignorance of modeling results that limit a negotiator’s power in bargaining processes.

With a focus on how System Dynamics modeling can be used to understand resilience against shocks and to support implementation of policies, we address major epistemological and teleological questions. There will be plenary presentations showcasing important work in the fi eld, along with parallel and poster sessions, making available the most current research, applications, and work in progress.

There is a full day of skill-building workshops covering a range of topics from basic software use to advanced analysis techniques. In addition, there will be interest group sessions, student colloquia, the modeling assistance workshop, vendor displays, demonstrations, and more. The conference schedule will provide time for social and professional interaction
