Dear All,

It is my pleasure to welcome you again to the third edition of CSD&M Asia, to be held at the National University of Singapore next December 2018. The ambition of the conference is to be THE meeting in Asia to develop systems architecture as an academic discipline and industry practice. This year, the theme of CSDM Asia is “SMART TRANSPORTATION”.

Technology has made sharing of information free. This enables the connection between producers of goods and services and consumers with reduction in costs of transaction. The costs of physical movement of people and goods have also gone down significantly over the last two decades. Networks in the cyber world and in the physical world have become ubiquitous and in real-time. The networking between professionals in industry, government and academia has become more compelling each year.

Our conference will not only provide the opportunity of sharing of knowledge and insights about transportation in the air, land and sea but also networking of professionals from different communities. Please join us to keep developing and to help promoting this emerging and exciting field of systems architecture.”

Dear Colleagues, Dear Guests,

The second edition of the international conference “Complex Systems Design & Management Asia” (CSD&M Asia) took place with great success in February 2016 at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). This event was created by the French Center of Excellence on Systems Architecture, Management, Economy & Strategy (CESAMES) which already organized the now well established CSD&M conference in Europe for more than 8 years.

The core principles that lead to the success of these conferences are also put at the heart of CSD&M Asia, seeking a balance between academia, government and industry partners. Indeed, we believe that mastering complexity can only be achieved with a strong and true cooperation between all key stakeholders.

We are therefore happy to renew this collaboration with Singapore, a leading country in the world of complex systems architecture & engineering. Thanks in particular to Professor Pao Chuen LUI and all our collaborating partners. We look very much forward to the participation of the Asia-Pacific systems community to this upcoming third edition of CSD&M Asia.”
