What is the INCOSE WSRC?

The INCOSE Western States Regional Conference (WSRC) was begun in 2018 to become an annual regional-level INCOSE conference for the INCOSE chapters of the western Unites States.  WSRC has been modeled after the Regional Mini-Conference 2016 and the many successful Great Lakes Regional Conferences (GLRC).  WSRC will provide a high quality source of education and networking among and beyond INCOSE membership.  The first WSRC in 2018 was attended by 120 people from 16 states with 4 SE PDD locations.

The WSRC is hosted by one chapter from among the Western United States INCOSE chapters region of the America’s Sector of INCOSE with participation from the other western states chapters.  The 11 chapters are shown below.


Held in September each year, WSRC is strategically set in-between INCOSE’s two main international events (the International Symposium (IS2019) in the summer and the International Workshop (IW2020) in the winter). Lower cost and closer to the region’s members, the WSRC is a more intimate conference than the annual INCOSE IS.  At the previous WSRC, many attendees were from the Western states area, but a significant percentage attended from other US regions.

The WSRC is 3 days in length, including pre- and/or post-event workshops, meetings, and activities.  The core program is typically 2 days long, followed by optional tutorials and workshops.  The program typically includes technical presentations, keynote speakers, INCOSE Working Group and chapter leader meetings, INCOSE Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP/ASEP) exams, sponsors, exhibitors, banquet, networking, tours, and social activities. 

WSRC 2019 will be hosted by the Los Angeles Chapter and will kickoff at the LMU Life Sciences Building, shown in the pictures.
