Call for Posters - ASEC 2018


The Systems Research Academic Showcase has become a familiar part of ASEC over the last few years, and this year it will be running again with some changes to the format; INCOSE UK are hoping to run an additional session allowing poster creators more of a chance to engage with the audience by giving a 10 minute timeslot allowing creators to present a summary of their work.

Winning poster of 2017’s competition

The Systems Research Academic Showcase is a competition for academic research that provides a far wider remit to participators than other competitions of similar standing. This includes:

  • Individual contributions, from full-time students researching Systems Engineering topics.
  • Group contributions, from academic research groups in specific universities.
  • Project contributions, such as EU and EPSRC projects. INCOSE UK welcomes contributions that may consist of a collaboration of partners involved in a single research project.

INCOSE UK welcomes contributions that may consist of a collaboration of partners involved in a single research project.

There is a maximum of 10 posters accepted for presentation and all entrants will be offered a complimentary seat to the ASEC 2018 conference dinner on Tuesday evening.

A panel of industry experts will be judging the competition. Authors should be available to discuss their entry with the panel. The winning poster will be awarded a prize at ASEC, kindly donated by the sponsoring organisation.

ASEC 2018 repeatedly provides an excellent forum for individuals or groups to tell INCOSE UK about their work. With free entry to the ASEC dinner, plus an additional prize up for grabs, this in an excellent opportunity which would be a shame to miss!
