The team rehearsing the conceptual design for marine shipping systems experiment, which will be demonstrated at the SDM 2018 symposium. Thanks to systems approach, simulation and tangible interfaces, stakeholders take architectural and strategic decisions transform the maritime industry. Thanks to recording and instrumentation, researchers will be able to observe teams interactions and seek for proofs of learning.
Lorena Pelegrin is a MIT SDM graduate student. She is applying systems thinking principles to explore how teams of teams interact on complex projects. She is especially interested in observing if teams learn in the process, and whether this learning could be measured.
Shinnosuke Wanaka is a PhD student from the University of Tokyo. He is conducting research on systems approaches and simulations to provide better decision supports for stakeholders.
Ira Winder is a Research Scientist at MIT. He invented the tangible interactive matrix (TIM), an integrated hardware and software platform that merges model-based simulations with user-friendly tangible interfaces.
Together, they are designing an experiment of conceptual design for marine shipping systems. The SDM 2018 symposium will give them the opportunity to demonstrate it.

The pace of symposium planning is picking up and abstracts are arriving in numbers. If you wish to submit a paper but have not yet done so, please note that we have extended the deadline to March 16th.
We are also finalizing the lineup of speakers and the schedule. Registration details should be available soon. Stay tuned! We will soon update the website with more information: www.sdm2018symposium.org
