4th Annual Systems Engineering in Healthcare Conference

Minneapolis/Saint Paul, April 19 - 20, 2018

The Healthcare Working Group invites you to participate in the 4th Annual INCOSE Healthcare Systems Conference (2018) at Crowne Plaza AiRE Hotel, Bloomington, Minnesota. This Conference will feature important topics from critical biomedical & healthcare sectors such as: product line engineering, risk management, agile & lean methods, systems architecture and more.

Call for Presentations, Panels & Tutorials

The INCOSE Conference on Systems Engineering in Healthcare enables participants to share the best practices in the latest Systems Engineering topics as applied to the Biomedical, Healthcare and Medical Technology sectors. Previous conferences focused on applying Agile methods to systems with hardware and software. The 2018 conference will broaden the topics to other state-of-the-art Systems Engineering methodologies.

The theme for the conference is:

“How SE Can Reduce Cost & Improve Quality”

INCOSE appreciates all submissions on Systems Engineering in Healthcare; however, there are areas of emphasis for this conference:

  • SE in Regulated Environment
  • Design Input & Stakeholder Analysis
  • Usability and User Experience
  • Systems Architecture and SoS
  • Product Line Engineering
  • Agile & Lean Methods
  • Modelling & Simulation
  • Digital & Systems Security
  • Risk Management
  • Systems Tools Best Practices
  • Emerging Topics in Systems Engineering for Medical Technology

For this small and interactive conference, we seek practitioners to share their knowledge and experience through presentations and collaborative sessions. We encourage sessions focused on experience reports and case studies, since these were highly valued in previous conferences. Instructional tutorials are also welcome, which are better when they include examples that help the audience apply the learning to their context.

Submissions are open now, due Feb 15, 2018. Follow this link to EasyChair:

In your submission, emphasize:

  • A compelling description – Why would someone want to attend your session?
  • Your target audience – Who should (or should not) attend?
  • Include your completed IP release form. (download here)
