(Center of Excellence on Systems Architecture, Management, Economy & Strategy) non profit association which is the creator of the CSD&M cycle of conferences in Paris and which managed the communication and the organization of CSD&M Asia.
C.E.S.A.M.E.S. is an offshoot of the Dassault Aviation - DCNS - DGA - Thales - Ecole Polytechnique - ENSTA ParisTech - Telecom ParisTech Chair “Engineering of Complex Systems” with which it has close institutional links through a formal Partnership convention with both Ecole Polytechnique and Fondation de l’Ecole Polytechnique.
The mission of the association is to promote methods of Systems Architecture to allow professionals to better control the speed and execution risk in their technology projects.
Systems Architecture is a generic discipline – resulting from the convergence of different existing architectural traditions – which allows the building of solutions by apprehending the technical and human complexity induced by the integration of more and more numerous interconnected components.
C.E.S.A.M.E.S. organizes different activities to promote Systems Architecture:
- Thematic-evenings on specific topics open to all,
- Workshops & debates for specialists
- The international annual cycle of conferences CSD&M (Complex Systems Design & Management) in Paris
- Training and actions on Enterprise Architecture and Systems Architecture
- Think Tank and convergence groups
