Abstract for: System Dynamics Lifetime Achievement Award Ceremony

The System Dynamics Society occasionally recognizes people for making a significant contribution to a field or a practice over an extended period of time. This is the only award of the Society that is based on a body of work done over lifetime and not on a single article. This award was formalized in 2012. No nominations are solicited for the award; the Jay Forrester Award Committee decides on the winner. The award carries a plaque recognizing the achievement of the winner. In 2017, the award was presented to Ali Mashayekhi for furthering the field of System Dynamics over his lifetime. To see a full list of winners, see the Society website.
