Call for submission

Transdisciplinary nature of SE:
impact on traditional and novel applications

Systems engineering is recognizing its transdisciplinary nature and impacting both traditional and novel application domains. From aerospace and automotive to medical equipment and smart cities systems engineers are challenged to understand the needs of new stakeholders and bring similar and unprecedented systems into being. CSER was founded by Stevens Institute of Technology and the University of Southern California, and this year the conference is focused on exploring recent trends and advances in systems sciences, digital engineering, formal modeling, sustainability goals, and the convergence of systems engineering with other disciplines. The 19th Conference on Systems Engineering Research (CSER) invites researchers to submit papers that address how systems engineers can prepare themselves to respond to the challenges posed by 21st century systems.
