Our last joint session with the University of Tokyo has been fruitful! We have finalized the names and topics of the three workshops featured at the symposium:
Dr. Kenji Tanaka and his lab are wrapping up the presentation of their exciting paper which will feature research on blockchain-based energy trading.
Want to know more? Join us at the SDM 2018 symposium.
The 2018 SDM Symposium will be featuring three teamwork experiment workshops. Here is a look under the hood at the simulation software used to conduct the experiments on conceptual design for marine shipping systems.
Featuring research from The Strategy Implementation Research Project at MIT, this webinar exposes ways to bridge the gap between strategy formulation and implementation by drawing on organizational learning methods and sociotechnical systems theory.
Want to know more? Attend our symposium on April 30th and May 1st.
Friday April 6th is the last day to book a room at a preferred rate at the Boston Marriott Cambridge. Do not wait for the last minute, there are still rooms left!
The call for abstracts is now closed and we have some solid content. We have accepted 18 abstracts for papers and oral presentations, 13 for posters, and 4 for which we have not chosen between paper and poster yet.
We will be welcoming 3 outstanding keynote speakers:
We were also delighted to receive the visit of Professor Hiroshi Mitani, Dean of the Graduate School of Frontier Sciences at the University of Tokyo and some of his graduate students.
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
Together with our friends from the University of Tokyo, we are working hard to frame the problems and cook some interesting workshops for the conference.
