Abstract for: Latin America Chapter Poster Presentation

The Latinamercian Chapter has the mission to help the SD-community grow in the spanish speaking countries. Founded in 2003, it has latinamerican members from Mexico to Chile, from Spain and a growing number of spanish speakers living in other countries. Since 2003, the annual meeting allows practitioners to gather and newcomers to get in to touch; we have been in Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Argentina so far. Since 2005, the spanish “Revista de Dinámica de Sistemas” publishes two numbers per year. The “sisTEMAS” newsletter and a mail list allow to keep in touch. During 2007, a joint effort lead to edit a book was undertaken. Also, a new textbook is to be released soon. For the future, the production of spanish language materials, the reinforcement of SD in education and the strive for high quality standards in applied work are our priorities.
