Abstract for: German Chapter Poster Presentation

The German Chapter advances networking and collaboration among system dynamicists in Germany. The Chapter has over 100 members (of which 4 are corporate members) and keeps more than 270 interested researchers, managers, and students updated through its e-mail newsletter. Frequent events such as roundtables and workshops in various German cities provide a basis for meeting fellow system dynamicists and for discussing modeling projects. On June 24-25, 2010, the Chapter's 4th Annual Meeting took place in Leipzig. The event brought together modelers from the scientific and corporate world, and by combining talks, presentations, and modeling exercises, it offered a formidable and appreciated platform for establishing links within the community as well as for actively advancing SD skills.
