EcoDoCS'2021 - Doctoral School on Eco-design of Complex Systems
11-15 October 2021
CentraleSupélec, Gif-sur-Yvette, France
CentraleSupélec, is organizing the eighth edition of the doctoral school "Eco-design of complex systems", EcoDoCS'2021, on October 11-15 on the campus of Université Paris-Saclay (France). It is endorsed by the Design Society and organized by the French network of eco-design researchers EcoSD (ecosd.fr), the French network for the "Industry of the future", and validated by Université Paris-Saclay.
Eco-designing products and services is already a hard and often ill-defined task since it involves both lifecycle modelling and multi-criteria decision analysis. But eco-designing complex systems is still harder for many reasons. This doctoral workshop aims at both defining the industrial and scientific issues of eco-designing complex systems – products, services, plants, socio-technical systems – and presenting practical solutions for modelling, simulating, optimising and making decisions on the best solutions in the design stage. The training alternates theory and practice. More than half of the time is spend on case studies, where participants are asked to apply proposed methodologies and tools, and research workshops, where they are asked to speak about their research issues.
This doctoral school is free of charge, delivered in English and open to Design Society members.
Registration can be made online or directly by e-mail to Dr. François Cluzel (email@example.com).
