There are multiple opportunities to learn more about system dynamics modeling and CBSD approaches.  Below is a listing of 2020 opportunities. This list will be updated as new opportunities become available.

Systems Science for Social Impact – Summer Training Institute

Dates: 27 July – 31 July, 2020

Focus:  This 5-day training will provide training in one of three in systems science methods (agent-based modeling, social network analysis, and system dynamics)that enhance the social impact of health and social science research. The System Dynamics track will be broken into two threads, one focusing on Group Model Building, and the other focused on simulation modeling.  The trainings are designed for advanced graduate students, recent graduates, professionals, and faculty from public health, social work, and social sciences.


Location: Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis, MO


International Conference of the System Dynamics Society 2020 Summer School

Dates: 14-17 July, 2020 Focus: The ISDC Summer School provides two learning tracks, focusing on introductory and intermediate system dynamics content.  The course covers the entire modeling process, starting with problem definition, followed by model conceptualization, formulation, testing, parameter estimation, and policy analysis.
