8th CSD&M Paris / Towards smarter and more autonomous systems

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 7 editions, CSD&M has become the conference of reference in the field of complex industrial systems architecture & engineering. This 8th conference will especially covers the theme “Towards smarter and more autonomous systems”
