Abstract for: Student Chapter Poster Presentation

The Student Chapter of the System Dynamics Society aims at building a network of students who are interested in system dynamics. The objective of the chapter is to foster the exchange of ideas among new and more advanced students, and to provide help with concerns and questions regarding student research. For the past ten years (2000-2009), the Student Chapter has organized the Ph.D. Colloquium at the International System Dynamics Conference. On the Sunday before the conference, students have the opportunity to present their work in its current state and receive feedback from other students, practitioners, and professors in a constructive and pleasant atmosphere.
