The systems science and computer modeling communities are diverse and widely dispersed all across the globe. Therefore, it has always been the mission of this blog to connect people beyond classrooms, organizations, regions and disciplines. We are constantly looking for new ways to create meaningful connections, which is why we are excited to announce the start of a new series of participatory live stream interviews with our authors: “Meet the Modeler”!
In these interviews, your interests and input counts! We’ll be asking our interviewee your questions and include your comments, which you can send in right as we are broadcasting. Use this chance to ask anything that you ever wanted to know about systems thinking and modeling, or share your own experiences with a wider audience.
Join us for the very first meeting on Thursday, April 12th at 4pm GMT (find your time zone here).We’ll be talking to Jonathan Nichols about his article Don’t fall in love with your models, no matter how beautiful they are. This will be a Facebook Live Event.
