This conference turned a Biennial conference to an annual conference, offering more opportunities of communication and presentation for scholars, researchers and students. More fresh academic works were demonstrated. This conference, we received 453 paper submissions. 240 papers were accepted, with an acceptance rate at 53%. More than 100 authors shared their research at the conference. The topics covered in this conference included system dynamics methodology and its application in business management, environment management and etc. In 2011, from Oct, 20th -22nd, we will have the 5th International Conference on Systems Science, Management Science & System Dynamics, together with the celebration of the 10-year anniversary of Tongji Development Institute. Tongji Development Institute is the leading institute for system dynamics research in China. 10 year ago, Professor Wang Qifan, together with other SD researchers, established this institute aiming at promoting system dynamics research in China. A gathering of system dynamics researchers will be held and together we will review our prior work and seek future development.
