Abstract for: Russian Chapter Poster Presentation

The Russian Chapter (SDRus) had another successful year. We launched a new website www.systemdynamics-russia.org, which is more interactive and user-friendly. In November of 2007 our chapter held a meeting at the Moscow State University. Eight members made reports at the meeting and we produced the plan of action for the upcoming year. Five new members joined SDRus recently. MSU hosted “The Winter School on Simulation Games and Modelling” in December of 2007. It was a very successful event attended by Russian and international participants. The goal of the winter school was to introduce participants to learning managerial processes through the use of simulation games. Another emphasis was on demonstrating capabilities of simulation games in teaching. The full report is published on our website. In May of 2008 system dynamics projects and papers have been presented at the annual MSU conference “State Management in the 21st Century”. One of our members is the chief editor of the Business Informatics Journal, published by the Higher School of Economics, Moscow. This publication welcomes SD articles in Russian and advertises upcoming events in system dynamics. Active work continues at MSU, State University of Management and other centres in Russia.
