GLRC13 — Giant Leaps With Systems Engineering

The theme of this year's GLRC is "Giant Leaps With Systems Engineering." The conference program will reflect on significant accomplishments of Systems Engineering, including celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. Looking ahead to the next 50 years, the GLRC13 will explore the possibilities with systems engineering in meeting the challenges of today and in the future.

INCOSE's Vision 2025 describes a landscape of opportunities, challenges, and evolving approaches to engineering the world of the future— a world of “systems”. Many engineering projects represent “Giant Leaps,” requiring extraordinary vision and action leading in new directions. 

The INCOSE GLRC features important topics from critical sectors such as aerospace, agriculture, biomedical and healthcare, defense, education, energy, environmental sciences, government, information, infrastructure, safety and security, space and transportation.
