The International Workshop on Simulation for Energy, Sustainable Development & Environment ( SESDE2015 ) is focusing on using M&S in applications related to Energy, Sustainability and Environmental Issues. Scientists and Subject Matter Experts in these sectors are invited to present innovative papers. The application of M&S to this sector represents a major opportunity considering the nature of the complex systems related to these issues that need to be studied and analyzed.
SESDE is part of I3M, a major Simulation Scientific Conference covering multiple aspects.

In 2012 during I3M several papers were focusing on SESDE issues and special sessions were organized in this topic
Country Reconstruction and Sustainability

Based on this success SESDE 2013 (Athens) and SESDE 2014 (Bordeaux) were successfully organized; currently SESDE is organized as a Workshop integrated in I3M Multiconference
