Call for Papers - ASEC 2019

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.

The theme for this year's ASEC is 'Celebrating the Future of Systems Engineering'.

Submissions are encouraged to be based around, but not limited to:

  • Inspiring the Next Generation
  • Advancing the Practice
  • Pushing the Boundaries

However, we are open to proposals that don't necessarily fall within the overall theme, and are keen to accept papers based around a variety of interesting applications in Systems Engineering. All presentations must be able to fill a 40-minute timeslot, and should include a five-minute window to allow presenters to answer any questions from their audience.

This year, as well as making all papers and presentations available on our website, we shall also be producing a formal paper copy of the Proceedings. All papers, therefore, must use the INCOSE UK template, which will be provided to all authors.

Information on the submission process and guidlines for the anatomy of a good paper can be downloaded here.
