EURAM2016 (June) - ISDC16 (July) - 4th BSLab Symposium 2016 (August)
We take the opportunity to draw your attention to some imminent deadlines regarding three of the next main events related to Systems Thinking and System Dynamics (or where ST and SD will be represented by means of one or more specific tracks) that will be held during 2016.
EURAM 2016 Conference – “Manageable Cooperation?”
1, 2, 3 and 4 June 2016, Paris
The theme "Manageable Cooperation?" invites to debate about the new modes of production together with the new ways of value creation and distribution that are emerging and growing, as well as on how old systems are transformed with new demands for cooperation at the political and productive macro, meso and micro levels.
Let's meet at Université Paris –Est Créteil (UPEC) ideally located 20 minutes away from Paris' Center (metro station Créteil Université). UPEC is partnering with prestigious French Business Schools to organise a 2016 EURAM conference providing a memorable opportunity for scholars and practitioners, as well as for doctoral students, to share and discuss their most recent high quality work with other experts in their research fields.
Note GT 03 _00 Entrepreneurship General Track:
T 03_11 Model-based strategy assessment in virtual environments for sustainable entrepreneurship (Co-sponsored with the Strategic Management SIG -13)
Established strategy theories and methods have helped explain current enterprise performance, in terms of the industry and competitive environment and the resources and capabilities of the firm. However, investors, entrepreneurs and managers all need to understand how revenues and cash-flows change over time, and anticipate the future trajectory of those items. We invite theoretical and empirical papers. We welcome papers that present business games and/or computer models that report cases of utilization of these tools for education or as supports for strategic entrepreneurial, managerial or investment decision-making.

Black Swans and Black Lies: System Dynamics in the Context of Randomness and Political Power-play
The annual System Dynamics conference brings together people from around the world to share research and application results and to build the community of those active in the field. The conference theme is "Black Swans and Black Lies: System Dynamics in the Context of Randomness and Political Power-play." System Dynamics has proven useful to analyze dynamically complex economic, social, and environmental issues. It is an effective methodology for designing robust systems and policies. We hope to challenge this usefulness in two areas: first, when systems are prone to be affected by random events that we were not able to include in our models; second, when System Dynamics models are not used in a fair or transparent way. An example for the former is our tendency to model averages that fail to account for unlikely but important outlier effects that can both boom or bust an organization. The intentional ignorance of modeling results in bargaining processes when they would limit a negotiator's power provide an example of the latter. With a focus on how System Dynamics modeling can be used to understand resilience against shocks and to support implementation of policies, we address major epistemological and teleological questions.

"Governing Business Systems: Theories and Challenges for Systems Thinking in Practice "
Mykolas Romeris University, Vilnius (Lithuania)
August 24-26, 2016.
The Fourth Business Systems Laboratory International Symposium focuses on the epistemological, theoretical, methodological, technical and practical contributions that can represent advancements in the theory and practice for governing business systems to address the present and future challenges in the global economic and social scenarios. The criticalities and the opportunities of our times are faced according to the cutting edge research and practice in social science. This multidisciplinary perspective includes: management, economics, engineering and sociology.
While focusing on the Systemic perspective, the Symposium includes all the scientific approaches in order to foster constructive debates and confrontations to create new perspective of research and practice in the business systems field.
The deadline for the submission of extended abstracts (between 500 and 2000 words) is March 15, 2016
