Call for Tutorials - ASEC 2019


INCOSE UK includes half-day tutorials at its Annual Systems Engineering Conference.

The format of ‘tutorial’ can cover a range of options: from a ‘set of instructions to complete a task’ to ‘an interactive problem-solving workshop’. A typical ASEC tutorial attracts between five and twenty delegates who are interested in trying something new or perhaps finding a different perception on something already familiar to them (and maybe looking for a break from back-to-back sessions!)

Call For Tutorials

INCOSE UK is looking for around four tutorial options which will be selected from the proposals received. Proposers are welcome to submit more than one proposal, but each proposal must be self-contained so that it can be assessed independently. It is vital that the tutorial style is explicitly expressed so that delegates clearly understand whether they will be expected to plaster flip charts with Post-it notes or simply sit and listen.

Successful presenters will be awarded a single one-day pass for ASEC 2019. If you wish to field more than one presenter, then additional presenters must register for the event in the usual way. You should be prepared to present on either 19 or 20 November 2019. The information in your proposal will be incorporated into promotional material for the event and used to ensure that the required facilities are provided. INCOSE UK will contact the proposer if any clarification is required.

Your full tutorial proposal must include the following information:

  • Title of the tutorial
  • Name and contact details of the proposer and the presenter
  • Aims and objectives of the tutorial / workshop
  • Overview of content
  • Course material to be provided
  • Facilities required (Note: presenters should source their own laptop, but rooms will be equipped with projectors and flip charts)
  • Credentials of presenter(s)
  • Intended audience/potential interest
  • Maximum number of attendees

Additional information to be provided to the delegates, such as tutorial notes, handouts, etc. are the sole responsibility of the tutorial provider in terms of cost and resource. Please note the course materials are not endorsed by INCOSE UK.
