Call for Papers: 5th International Conference on Complex Systems Design & Management CSD&M 2014

Designing complex industrial systems is a fundamental strategic challenges. This spawned the relatively new academic field of "system architecture & engineering", producing a body of research that allows engineers to manage the increasing complexity of the technical systems they design. This field is at the interface between industry and academia, and requires its practitioners to understand the industrial concrete contexts as well as to master a strong theoretical background.
Thus, the ambition of the 5th CSD&M conference is to be the meeting of reference for both the industrial and academic environments working in the design and management of complex industrial systems.


  • Abstract submission (optional) : March 26, 2014
  • Paper submission deadline : April 9, 2014
  • Results announcement : May 30, 2014
  • Final version for publication: June 30, 2014
  • Conference : November 12-14, 2014
  • Best papers awards : November 14, 2014


As the CSD&M conference is both industrial and academic, the papers' topics could be industrial, academic or both in transverse. About twenty selected papers will be fully published in the conference proceedings and shall give a 30-min contributed talk at dedicated session of the conference. Some twenty other papers selected for the Poster Workshop will also participate in the conference and have one-page abstract published in the same proceedings (printed by SPRINGER VERLAG with an ISBN number) and can also be fully published in an online proceedings: CEUR-WS, if option chosen.

The program committee is pleased to inform you of the following awards for the best CSD&M 2014 papers in 2 categories :
1 prize of 2.000€ for the best academic or/and industrial paper and 1 prize of 1.000€ for the best student paper.
