Call for Presentations - ASEC 2018

INCOSE UK are inviting individuals and organisations to submit presentations to be delivered at the Annual Systems Engineering Conference (ASEC), INCOSE UK's flagship event. ASEC brings together a wide range of professionals from a variety of backgrounds with the common interest of building upon their Systems Engineering (SE) knowledge and sharing ideas with their peers.

Presentation at ASEC 2016

The theme for this year's ASEC is based around the Year of Engineering, a government-led initiative with the goal of making engineering more accessible to future generations. We want people to be inspired by what they are doing in their work, whether new to SE or holding many years' experience. We are also planning to run various STEM engagement activities with local community groups to tie in with both the Year of Engineering and the Year of Women.

Submissions are encouraged based around, but not limited to:

  • Where next for Systems Engineering?
  • Growing the Systems Engineering workforce of the future.
  • The variety in Systems Engineering

However, we are open to proposals that don't necessarily fall within a ridged theme, and are keen to accept papers based around a variety of interesting applications in SE.

Presentation at ASEC 2016

Presentations will be 40 minutes in duration, followed by five minutes of questions and answers at the end.

This year we will again be asking for a six-page paper submission, that will be published after the ASEC by INCOSE UK. Each submission will blind reviewed by a group of three reviewers, all of whom will be expert in the area of the subject matter. Full formal feedback will be provided for all submissions. The quality of submitted papers last year was outstanding and we are hoping for similar this year!

The INCOSE UK ASEC provides an excellent opportunity to share and test your ideas with a knowledgeable audience. You will gain valuable feedback in the conference chamber and have plenty of time for informal discussions during the event.
