 Trip Report on the INCOSE IS2018 Symposium

Speaker: Joseph Bradley
About the Presentation:
The 28th annual INCOSE International Symposium (IS2018) took place July 7-12, 2018 in Washington, DC. This year’s theme was “Delivering Systems in the Age of Globalization.” Some of the key topics discussed at IS2018 were SE for the future, the science of systems (Systemology), SE for safety, SE for governance, the interface between SE and software engineering, and competencies for SE. In this talk, I’ll summarize my experience participating in the event. Plan ahead for IS2019, which will be in Orlando!
