There are multiple opportunities to learn more about system dynamics modeling and CBSD approaches.  Below is a listing of upcoming opportunities. This list will be updated as new opportunities become available.

System Science for Social Impact (SSSI) 2023 Summer Training Institute

Dates: July 31-August 4, 2023

Focus: At this 5-day Summer Training Institute, participants get a hands-on introduction to systems science methods that enhance the social impact of health and social science research. This in-depth training institute will focus on four major systems science methods: Agent-based ModelingGroup Model Building (led by Ellis Ballard and Kelsey Werner), Social Network AnalysisSystem Dynamics (Led by Kristen Hassmiller Lich and Nasim Sabounchi) and Systems Thinking. Participants will review the major concepts of their chosen track/method, learn analytic best practices, and apply the methods to real-world data. The workshops are designed for faculty, advanced graduate students, recent graduates, and professionals from public health, social work, and social sciences.

Location: St. Louis, MO, USA


International System Dynamics Conference (ISDC) 2023 Summer School

Dates: July 10-13, 2023

Focus: Held the week before the annual conference, Summer School provides a unique opportunity to learn (or review) System Dynamics while getting exposure to real-world applications of the method. Seasoned instructors and teaching assistants provide in-depth instruction in this intensive course covering all aspects of System Dynamics simulation modeling. Both introductory and intermediate tracks are available to suit different learning levels.

Location: Virtual


International System Dynamics Conference (ISDC) 2023 Student Organized Colloquium

Dates: July 19, 2023

Focus: The Student-organized Colloquium is a free, one-day event organized by the Student Chapter of the System Dynamics Society held on the first day of the ISDC. The Student-organized Colloquium promotes dialogue among system dynamicists of varying fields, levels of training, and backgrounds and creates spaces to have meaningful conversations about the topics that we all care about so that everyone can share and receive feedback to improve their work.

Location: Chicago, USA & Virtual
