Researchers, managers and tool developers will present their experience in using DSM-related methods and tools for complexity management in this year's DSM Conference. During three days, the agenda provides various insights into the current state of the art of complexity management with DSM. Please note that the presented agenda is preliminary and slight modifications might occur in the weeks before the conference.
