Abstract for: United Kingdom Chapter Poster Presentation and Annual Meeting

The UK Chapter have regular meetings in the UK and annually at the international conference venue. (See www. systemdynamics.org.uk) This year we held our 11th Annual Gathering at London South Bank University. Co-hosted with the SD+ Study Group of the UK OR Society, it proved a great success (53 attendees). The theme was "System Dynamics: the client perspective." The first afternoon consisted of presentations with clients there to offer their views on SD as a method of policy analysis. The organisations involved were the Refrigeration Corporation of Cleveland (Ohio), Bristol Water and the Ministry of Justice. A buffet dinner followed in the evening. We held our 2nd PhD Colloquium on the following morning with a number of student poster presentations. Our evening networking events have continued. These are an informal means of renewing acquaintances as well as meeting new faces. This Spring we are planning one outside of London in the NW of England. If you are based in the UK and not already on our membership list (membership is free) then please do join us and see what we have to offer. There are between 80 and 100 members active in SD in the UK.
