Proceedings of the
34th International Conference of the System Dynamics Society*
Delft, Netherlands -- July 17-21, 2016

Papers, workshops, and other materials presented at the conference are listed alphabetically by the last name of the first author, chair, or presenter.

These materials are networking tools for members of the Society, those who attended the conference, and the System Dynamics community more broadly.

The Conference provides a venue for presenting work and receiving comments that can strengthen the work and help to prepare it for wider distribution.

These web proceedings provide a complete record of presentations at the Conference. They are not intended to be a substitute for publishing in peer-reviewed journals, and some papers may be truncated or include only an abstract. The Society’s web proceedings do not have an ISBN. The Bound, Printed Full Set or CD-ROM of the Proceeding include an ISBN and those numbers are available from our independent publisher.

Readers are encouraged to contact authors or search scientific and business publications to determine if more authoratative and up-to-date versions of works included here exist.

To find a paper by an author who is not the first author, simply search on the author's name. Papers are Acrobat® (.pdf) files and can be read using Acrobat® Reader® software available from Supporting materials are usually archives or models which may require additional software (details). Links, when shown, were supplied by the authors and were current at the time of publication.
