Abstract for: German Chapter Poster Presentation

The German Chapter advances networking and collaboration among system dynamicists in Germany. The Chapter has 115 members per end of April 2012 (of which 6 are corporate members and 5 are student members) and keeps more than 300 interested researchers, managers, and students updated through its e-mail newsletter. System Dynamics colloquia and roundtables are regularly organized in Frankfurt/Main. These events provide a basis for meeting fellow system dynamicists and for discussing modeling projects. On June 21-22, 2012, the Chapter's 6th Annual Meeting is held in Frankfurt/Main. 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).
