The International Workshop on Simulation for Energy, Sustainable Development & Environment ( SESDE2016 ) 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.

Based on this success SESDE 2013 (Athens), SESDE 2014 (Bordeaux), SESDE 2015 (Bergeggi) and SESDE 2016 (Cyprus) were successfully organized; currently SESDE is organized as a Workshop integrated in I3M Multiconference
