Abstract for: German Chapter Poster Presentation

The German Chapter advances networking and collaboration among system dynamicists in Germany. The Chapter has 113 members per end of April 2011 (of which 5 are corporate members) and keeps more than 280 interested researchers, managers, and students updated through its e-mail newsletter. System Dynamics colloquia and roundtables are regularly organized in various German cities (Frankfurt/Main, Munich). These events provide a basis for meeting fellow system dynamicists and for discussing modeling projects. On May 26-27, 2011, the Chapter's 5th Annual Meeting is held in Wolfsburg. This event brings together modelers from the scientific and corporate world, and by combining talks, presentations, and modeling exercises, it offers a formidable and appreciated platform for establishing links within the community as well as for actively advancing SD skills. More information on the activities of the German Chapter is available from our website at http://www.systemdynamics.de (in German).
