The Student Chapter of the System Dynamics Society was established in 1999. We bring together all students who are involved in System Dynamics research and give them the opportunity to raise key questions and to discuss concerns related to their research in a constructive and enjoyable atmosphere. For this purpose, the Chapter manages a website, a list server, and a newsletter, and organizes a yearly PhD Colloquium held during the International Conference of the System Dynamics Society. The objectives of the Chapter are: (1) to extend and unify the knowledge of feedback systems among students all over the world, (2) to promote the development of System Dynamics and the interchange of knowledge and research, (3) to intensify the communication between and form a basis for cooperation amongst the graduate students in their researches, (4) to arouse interest among undergraduate students towards SD, (5) to promote the communication between the students of SD and the practitioners of the field, (6) to form a medium to help SD students to get into contact with field related graduate studies and job opportunities. It is also for these reasons that the Student Chapter organizes the now traditional PhD Colloquium. Check for more information.
