This paper is a short review of a conference held in Sevilla, Spain, in October 1987. Organized by the Systems Dynamic Society, it concentrated around concepts in methodology and applications of nonlinear system modelling within the framework introduced by Jay Forrester and his followers.

The attitude to this approach is controversial. For example, the respective methodologies do not involve the identification of system parameters and the construction of the models from available data does not involve and may even contradict with the rigorous concepts and techniques of modern system theory.

The review given here does not discuss the relevance of "System Dynamics". It merely gives some information on the topics presented at the conference in Sevilla.
