I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of presentations I attended at the SD conference in St. Gallen. Many of the posters were also very good – the society seems to have been successful in overcoming the booby-prize stigma, making it a pleasure to graze on the often-excellent work in a compact format (if only the hors d’oeuvre line had had brevity to match its tastiness…).
In anticipation of an even better array of papers next year, here’s my quasi-annual reminder about resources for producing good work in SD:
- Doing quality simulation research
Rahmandad & Sterman on reporting guidelines
- The secret to successful system dynamics modeling The secret, with links to earlier posts on writing good SD papers and effective model critique.
I suppose I should add posts on good presentation technique and poster development (thoughts welcome).
Thanks to the organizers for a well-run enterprise in a pleasant venue.
