Call for Posters - ASEC 2019


The Systems Research Showcase has become a familiar part of the Annual Systems Engineering Conference (ASEC) over the past few years, and this year aims to be better than ever.

Winning poster of 2017’s competition

The Systems Research Showcase is a competition for research posters, that provides a wider remit to participants than similar competitions and gives a platform for contributors to display and present their work. This will be a unique opportunity to present ideas and research from people across Systems Engineering, we encourage submissions from:

  • Individual full-time students (75% of time spent in education) , who are researching Systems Engineering topics.
  • Group contributions from academic research groups in universities.
  • Project contributions such as EU and EPSRC projects.
  • Industry research teams.

Posters will be judged by a panel of industry experts, where contributors will have a chance to discuss their entry with the panel, and there is the chance of winning a number of prizes kindly donated by our sponsor(s).

ASEC is an established forum which enables individuals or groups to showcase their work to INCOSE UK and the wider audience. The forum attracts attendance from world industry leaders, innovative specialists and academic experts alike.
