Would you like to get involved in an INCOSE Working Group? The INCOSE Technical Operations organization offers more than 40 working groups--each devoted to a domain within systems engineering. The working groups meet at the annual INCOSE International Workshop (IW) and up to several times remotely through the year.

We invite you to join our annual INCOSE Working Group discussion. We will briefly discuss working groups and focus on working groups that our chapter directly supports. We welcome your feedback about INCOSE Working Groups and invite you to become more involved.

Our panel discussion will focus, particularly, on the Configuration Management (CM) and Digital Engineering Information Exchange (DEIX) working groups. The chapter supports these two working groups locally.
