CSD&M Paris 2020

December 16th - 17th
11th Edition
Online Edition

Mastering complex engineered systems is a fundamental strategic challenge. Complex Systems Design & Management (CSD&M) conference is a widely open meeting event dedicated to academic researchers, industrial and governmental actors who are interested in complex industrial systems engineering. The event is not limited to the existing specialists of the subject!

The 2-day conference allows since 2010 to discover and share about theories, methods and tools that have been developed to allow to manage the increasing complexity of the technical systems you must design and implement.

Thanks to its past 10 editions, CSD&M has become the conference of reference in the field of complex industrial systems architecture & engineering.



Replays of the event are available for CESAM Comunity members. More information : CESAM Community membership.

CESAM Community regularly organizes eventsOur events

The CSD&M Conference is chaired by one keynote Chairman and is also based on the involvment of many Committee Members that you can discover more precisely below.

  • The Organizing Committee is in charge of defining the agenda/program of the conference, identifying Keynote Speakers and has to ensure the functioning of the event (sponsoring, communication…).
  • The Program Committee consists of about 20 members (mixed of experts from academic and industrial institutions) of high international visibility. Their expertise spectrum covers all the conference topics. This committee is in charge of assessing submitted papers and of selecting the ones that will be presented during the contributed talks session or during the poster workshop.
